A couple of months ago, I watched Oprah’s Master Class for the first time.  And I was so inspired!   Each episode of Master Class features a famous personality who shares their story with viewers.  The hour-long presentation is split into several segments, and each segment focuses on a specific lesson.  Some of the individuals that have participated in Oprah’s Master Class include Alicia Keyes, Morgan Freeman, Jane Fonda and Jay-Z.  And they share their story – – their successes, their disappointments, their insights and their reflections – – using personal anecdotes from their life.

I figured that it is highly unlikely that I will ever be invited to an Oprah show – – I’m not famous enough!  So, in the spirit of living fearlessly, I decided to do a “Master Class” of my own!  This project came from a desire to share my story with family and friends, and to reflect on my journey with cancer.  A journey that has been wrought with losses – – and with blessings.

Here is a preview of one of the segments we filmed last week.  Stay tuned for Munira’s Master Class – My Story coming soon…

As a reminder, I will be participating in the Journey to Conquer Cancer – 5K Walk  this Sunday, June 23rd.  I ask for your support to raise funds needed for ground breaking research at The Princess Margaret for this incurable disease.

No amount is too small.  Thank you and God Bless!

      Ya Ali Rashida – – The video took me back to 16 months ago when things were dismal. I have learnt that hope, faith and prayers trump all challenges. Keep smiling, Munira

    Remarkable Munira! You’ve got too much to share with all of us so of course God’s got this. You just have to take the ride while he’s in the driver’s seat. Our prayers are only that your ride is smooth and trouble free to a healthy new YOU!!!
    We’ll see you at the walk on Sunday. Just awaiting the details.

    Beautiful piece.

    Arif, Dilshad, Nareesa and Tahara

    This made me relive that fateful night in the ICU. Out of the countless nights I’ve spent at the hospital – I will never forget how strong you were that night. Very very proud of you

      Aliya – – I will never forget how you stayed the whole night while I was in ICU. You give me strength. Thank you for making the time to come out to the Walk – – it would not have been the same without you. When can I legally adopt you?

    Lump in my throat watching part one. Bravo for doing this. I look forward to your next one. Keep well.

      Thanks Naz – – This is what has been keeping me busy the last couple of weeks! Missed you today for swimming. And I now have goggles!!!! Hope today worked out really well for you.

      • Kermally , June 18, 2013

        It did actually – sold a safari which I just managed to finalize an hour ago, after all day of negotiations. Sorry about the swim, but I will touch base with you tomorrow to set a time.
