Hi, I’m Viki Zarkin!
If you like to challenge the status quo, then you’re in the right place…
I love to inspire women to change the way we have been programed to think. Starting with young women, I emphasize how it is for them to believe in themselves, challenge the status quo, find their voice, and listen to their heart.
I married the love of my live in 1992 and we began our life together. For nearly 18 years, I worked at my husband’s dental practice, while raising my two amazing kids, Dell, and Isabella. Like most busy moms, I didn’t slow down, until I had to. On January 5, 2011, I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic cancer, and it turned our world upside down.
When I was diagnosed, my doctor first told me to go home and get my affairs in order!
With 2 small children at home, I was determined to fight for my life, advocating for myself, navigating the world of healthcare, and following my gut!
After eleven years, I am the only one alive like me.
I want more women to stand next to me shoulder to shoulder. They too deserve to tuck their children into bed at night. I decided that it is up to me to fight for them, and fight I will!
In my book, “I Am The One,” (out at the end of the summer), I tell my story…
I love speaking to crowds of both women and men of all ages to share my story and inspire them to reach for their best. My can-do attitude inspires people to think differently in their everyday lives and by applying my unique thought process which asks of everyone to be their best self. Whether that’s the best mom, dad, or advocate in our healthcare system.
In my course, There’s More to Cancer Than The Diagnosis, I teach women how to avoid the pitfalls in the cancer journey so that they can focus on getting well. I also help people navigate patient relationships, nutrition, appreciating the “little things in life”, juggling motherhood and cancer, advocating for listening before diagnosing in the treatment rooms, and helping women follow their instinct’s regarding their own health care and much more.
I made a promise to God that if I could raise my children, I would help women and I keep my promises!
While my kids were growing up I made it my mission to help at least one person every day. Big or small it didn’t matter but now my kids are off to school so I need to help women on a larger scale.
If this resonates with you in any way, I sure could use the help because I plan to make this a global movement and that’s going to take a LOT of help!
Here’s to saving women and keeping promises!
