about the host &
the show

Welcome to my podcast!

My name is Lorie. Yep, with an “E” at the end! Not many of us out there and love that it is unique! I am the host and creator of Sailing Through Life.

Join me on this Journey to Health, Happiness and Living your Dreams. As a 2-time melanoma cancer warrior, my focus is to be an inspiration to others to stay positive while going through cancer and other life-altering events. My life has been forever changed with my experiences, but I have found my purpose because of it.

I think about how I started a podcast to be a friend to others going through their own life changes. Since then there have been so many changes in my own life. I have met so many incredible people who have been a blessing to me and willing to share their experiences in the hope of reaching and helping others.

You need to invest in yourself in order to be a value to others.

I have learned it is time to LIVE my best life…NOW.

On this show, I share my life and conversations with amazing people and organizations that provide support and hope for the future. Listen to survivors, life coaches, authors as they enlighten us on this journey. Follow me as we navigate through this thing called life.

There is so much more I can say about my mission and of course about anything sailing. Please take time to check in for new episodes as I update you on my story as well.

It’s time to feel empowered! It’s time to make every choice count! Join me as I set sail on this new adventure.

Cancer Out Loud with CancerCare

Lorie, a two-time melanoma survivor and CancerCare online support group member, joins the podcast to talk about her diagnosis and treatment experience. She explains that cancer pushed her to re-prioritize and re-evaluate her life, drawing parallels between life with cancer and her love for sailing. The open sea is unpredictable and necessitates constant adaptation and perseverance, but it can also be beautiful, bright, warm, and life-affirming, Lorie shares. Through her podcast, Sailing Through Life, Lorie hopes she can use her voice and cancer experience to connect to others and feels that if she is able to help just one person feel less isolated, her endeavors will be worthwhile.”
