When Suleika graduated from college in 2010, her dream was to become a war correspondent, but life took her into a very different type of conflict zone. At age 22, she was diagnosed with leukemia. She began reporting from the front lines of her hospital bed in the New York Times column and video series, “Life Interrupted,” which earned her a 2013 News & Documentary Emmy Award.
A sought after speaker and teacher, Suleika travels the world, and has inspired audiences everywhere from the main stage of TED, the United Nations and Capitol Hill to a maximum security prison and a two-room schoolhouse in rural Montana. She served on Barack Obama's Presidential Cancer Panel, and sits on the national advisory boards of Family Reach and The Bone Marrow Foundation.
