If you ever doubt that a mindset of gratitude can change your life, Tami might have convinced you otherwise. She’s very missed already. I could never thank her enough for all she taught me (and for fun around the campfire in her and Mike’s backyard).
Author, blogger and cancer research advocate Tami Boehmer née Greenfield, 52, of Dillonvale made her spiritual transition on November 4, 2015 after living with cancer for more than 13 years.
Tami helped countless cancer survivors, their families and others with her message of hope. Her books, From Incurable to Incredible: Cancer Survivors Who Beat the Odds and Miracle Survivors: Beating the Odds of Incurable Cancer and her blog Miracle Survivors have inspired readers around the globe.
Tami served as an advocate for metastatic breast cancer research, traveling across the country to speak and lobby with national leaders. She lived with the disease for more than seven years, prompting her oncologist to call her the most proactive patient he had ever had. Tami also helped many through her volunteer work with organizations such as Pink Ribbon Girls.
She loved being a parent and a wife, socializing with family and friends, taking walks in nature, traveling, swimming and listening to a wide range of music, especially from the 1980s. She is survived by her husband Mike, daughter Chrissy, of Dillonvale, brother Doug, of Santa Cruz, CA, as well as loving in-laws, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. Her parents and a brother preceded her in the transition.
Tami was a long-time member of New Thought Unity Center and gained great spiritual strength through active participation in 12-step groups. A graduate of Ohio University, she worked in healthcare public relations for a number of years.
A celebration of life will be held at 2PM on November 15, 2015 at New Thought Unity Center in East Walnut Hills. A reception celebrating Tami’s life will follow the service in the fellowship hall. Memorial contributions may be directed to Pink Ribbon Girls, New Thought Unity Center, Camp Kesem, or a cancer cause of your choice.
