Elana K Wight
Elana is a speaker, mentor, author of the much-anticipated memoir, Red Thursday, which is about her personal struggle to beat Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. As a single mother of two and an inspirational consult in the professional beauty industry, Elana has worked with top salons, stylists, and brands throughout the U.S. As the founder of Red Thursday Foundation, a non-profit organization she shares her very personal journey of cancer survival. Her goal is to grow Red Thursday Foundation to offer financial resources and health advocacy for cancer patients and their supporters in multiple ways; and to encourage, inspire and give hope to anyone affected by cancer. She also hopes to grow another division of Red Thursday that will provide similar resources to licensed beauty professionals diagnosed with cancer. What makes Elana unique is her attitude about living abundantly and turning her worst nightmare into a blessing and catalyst for personal growth.
