Keynote Speaker Lee Woodruff’s Books

Pardee Hospital Foundation is now selling copies of all three of Women Helping Women keynote speaker Lee Woodruff’s bestselling books: In an Instant, Perfectly Imperfect and Those We Love Most. Woodruff will speak at this year’s 20th Annual Women Helping Women luncheon on Friday, Oct. 20 at Blue Ridge Community College. Hardcover books are $15 each and paperback copies are $12 each, below retail price. All proceeds will benefit the Women Helping Women program. 

To purchase your copies, visit the Pardee Hospital Foundation office at 561 Fleming Street in Hendersonville. 

Lee Woodruff is a popular speaker, journalist and author of three bestselling books. Whether she’s sharing wisdom about the health care journey and recovery, or speaking candidly about life and family, she draws on her experiences to connect with the audience. Her trademark humor and down-to-earth manner has made her a popular keynote speaker nationwide. 

The Women Helping Women program began in 1998 primarily to help uninsured and under-insured women receive mammograms. The program has expanded over the years to include important screenings to prevent and treat all women’s cancers, heart disease, and other life-threatening medical conditions. As of 2016, Women Helping Women has raised more than $2 million in financial assistance for women in Henderson County. Each ticket sold provides a potentially lifesaving health screening to one woman who otherwise would be unable to afford it.
