Lu Ann is a former Philadelphia TV Reporter who knows what it’s like to be stuck. After fighting breast and kidney cancers, she was sad and struggling, trying to change her story. So she began her “year of firsts,” after learning that change starts with doing something new, every single day. “I Dare Me,” her year-long challenge and book, opened up Lu Ann’s world, and through documenting that journey, Lu Ann is helping others open theirs. She helps us find the passion that drives us to dare search for our spark, as she did hers.
