WHEELING — The Auxiliary of Wheeling Hospital is bringing to Wheeling nationally acclaimed motivational speaker and author Donna Tyson, who will speak on “Life’s Balance Wheel.”

The Oct. 24 event, open to the public, will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the White Palace at Wheeling Park. Tickets include hors d’oeuvres and beverages . All proceeds will benefit the Oncology Fund of Wheeling Hospital’s Schiffler Cancer Center.

The fund is used to help patients and their families with various needs during cancer treatment.

Caroll Mazure, auxiliary president, said Tyson spoke at the Auxiliary of West Virginia Hospital Association’s spring workshop at Stonewall Resort, where she inspired and uplifted the Auxiliary delegates.

“She draws on her experiences as a former TV and radio personality, successful business owner, community leader, missionary, cancer survivor, mother and grandmother for her thought-provoking life lessons,” Mazure said. “We were left spellbound by her stories of empowerment.”
