Regina Brett


This Surviving & Thriving segment is presented by Florida Hospital. With the right kind of care and support and the right attitude, it’s possible to not only survive life’s greatest challenges but to thrive in the aftermath.

A breast cancer diagnosis sent Regina Brett on a journey that has altered the focus of her life. Cancer is a disease that has a way of getting your attention and making you think about things you’ve never really thought much about. 

Regina thought about these things so much that she’s since written two books. The first was called “God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours.” And she’s followed that up with “Be the Miracle: 50 Lessons for Making the Impossible Possible.”

She is a New York Times best-selling author, newspaper columnist and inspirational speaker.

Regina offers advice for looking at life as a gift, and that even the messy parts of life are a part of it all.

What are you really living for? Regina challenges you to rethink the way you’re living and viewing your life and take stock of the things that really matter before it’s too late.  

She also offers tips for finding the grace and goodness in the small parts of life, whether you’re sitting in a doctor’s office after a diagnosis or you’re watching a sunset. 

Plus, she offers the own “messy” parts of her life and shares why all of those moments led her to now.
