In 2006, after suffering cancer for almost four years, Anita's organs started shutting down and she slipped into a deep coma. She was rushed to the hospital where she claims to have crossed into the afterlife during what she considers a Near Death Experience (NDE). Upon returning from her NDE, he body healed from the end-stage lymphoma within a matter of days and within months was completely cancer free.

She speaks on topics such as facing death, facing a prognosis of terminal illness, dealing with cancer, how to support someone with a terminal illness, fear and stress from illness.

"Dying to be Me" was published in March of 2012, and hit the New York Times' bestsellers list two weeks after its release. Moorjani was then invited to be on Wayne Dyer's PBS special titled "Wishes Fulfilled", and since then, has been interviewed on "Fox And Friends"; CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360"; National Geographic International, and more.

Kevin Berthia joins Parsons Speaker Roster!
Grateful Survivor- Advocate- Living Proof
"I had never dealt with any of the problems in my life, and that morning I was overwhelmed by it all.....
I parked and walked towards the bridge. As I jumped over the railings I heard someone say: "Hey, wait a minute." I was convinced I was going to end my life , but at the last moment his voice made me stop and grab the railings... I now know that was Officer Briggs  He snapped me back to reality. I was on that ledge for 92 minutes, and for 89 of those I just talked. I got everything out and he listened without judging..."

Kevin Berthia has since become a Suicide Prevention Advocate, encouraging people to talk through their problems rather than think about ending their lives. Kevin believes that depression may be a part of you, but it is not who you are. He lives in Northern California and has since welcomed a third child to the world.
