Our expectations were met in full! It was a beautiful and gripping description of a lengthy course of illness at a young age. Mette’s great merit is that she does not descend into drama, but tells of her sadness and joy through the years with sensitivity in a very captivating way. Mette is a great story teller, and OK Club in Haderslev highly recommends her Willpower Girl talk.”

How To Find Your Willpower

A Teenager’s Trek Through Cancer

 

This best-selling presentation about teenage cancer, willpower and support is a gripping and frank discussion about experiencing a serious, incomprehensible illness as a young girl and managing to come out the other side.

In this best-selling presentation, teenage cancer speaker Mette de Fine Licht tells her entire story — beginning with the very first symptoms of the illness to the return she made to daily life once the cancer was gone. Mette speaks about friends, family and taboos: What can you say to a teenage cancer patient? And what NOT to say if your friend, sibling, son or daughter has cancer? Mette speaks about the importance of getting rid of thoughts like ‘why me?’ And about looking forward and keep hoping and believing that tomorrow will be better than today. Mette also tells how it feels to put your life in the hands of doctors and nurses, hoping that they can and will save your life. And finally, she talks about how she returned to a normal teenage life again, once the cancer was gone. How she fought to find herself again as ‘Mette’ – not ‘teenage cancer Mette’.

“I hope my story can give courage and hope to anyone experiencing teenage cancer or adversity of one sort or another at this very moment. Teenage cancer patients might recognize themselves in my story, and recognition is very important when you’re fighting against cancer: The more you see that you’re NOT the only one in this shitty situation, the less alone you will feel. Loneliness can be as evil as cancer. It will eat you up from the inside. Getting through the tough times is about believing and feeling that you are an important part of a winning team with friends, family, doctors and nurses around you to support you and help. That will give you the willpower to get through a tough treatment, which in the end is what’s going to kill the cancer. It is also my hope that I can support cancer survivors in not being cast in the roll of victim just because they have experienced something tragic and terrible. Life can become something wonderful, even though you have had cancer,” Mette says.

The 32-year-old author of the teenage book Willpower Girl — A Teenager’s Trek Through Cancer and 10 other books is a partner in the Danish book agency, Skriveværkstedet. She is married to a prince of a man and is the mother of a little boy with one more baby boy coming up in March 2018.
