At age 28, Miss America 1963, Jackie Mayer, awoke to find herself paralyzed and without speech. The victim of a massive stroke, Jackie had to learn to walk, tie her shoes, and learn her A-B-C's all over again.

After seven long years of fighting back, Jackie now speaks to thousands of people throughout the United States and Canada on the preciousness of life, suggesting a philosophy of life that audiences can live by, and touching their lives with hope, encouragement, and love.

Her motivational/inspirational presentations include:

* "From Trauma To Triumph"

* "A Different Kind Of Beauty"

* "Pursuing Significance"

* "A Life of Significance"

* "The Three C's: Choice, Circumstance, Committment/Christ"

* Full day hospital/rehab program with presentations to patients, staff, and families; media interviews; community appearances/events.

* Special programs are available for service clubs, churches and religious organizations, high school and college commencements.
