Cycle of Lives: Emotions and Cancer with David Richman

Published on: 24th October, 2021

This is a story about how one man healed himself and used a tragedy and turned it into life purpose. An entrepreneur, author, public speaker, athlete, and philanthropist, David Richman uses the lessons

learned in his life to enrich and inspire others. As a

former sedentary, over-weight, smoker, David knew that he

needed to focus not on what others wanted out of him, but on

what he wanted out of life.

With his first book, Winning in the Middle of the Pack, David discussed how to get more out of ourselves than ever imag-

ined. Now, David shares the interconnected stories of others overcoming obstacles—specifically cancer—in his second

book Cycle of Lives.

OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS, David has completed:

• Over 50 triathlons, including

15 Ironman-distance triathlons

• More than 50 runs longer than

marathon distance

• Several 24-hour runs

• An 85-mile run in Mexico

during the summer

• Four consecutive marathons (104

miles) from Santa Barbara to

Manhattan Beach

• A solo, 5,000 mile bike ride from

California to Florida to New York

Profile picture for Hayley Adams

Hayley Adams

My name is Hayley Adams, CMHC, LPC, CCTP. I am a retired Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) veteran and licensed therapist. I graduated in 2017 from Thomas University with a Masters in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in Addictions. I also have credentials in trauma treatment. I understand trauma from both personal and professional lenses. My behavioral health background began 15 years ago on a volunteer basis where I worked with Native American tribes to provide mental health support to teen mothers. From there, my passion for people began to grow full force. I got my start as a therapist working in a Therapeutic Community (TC) in a prison providing rehabilitation services. I went on to work for a few dual diagnosis centers working in addictions after that. I then branched out and began curriculum development writing therapeutic content for three distinguished dual diagnosis centers. Wanting to broaden my horizons, I worked for an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). There, I specialized in working with first responders, trauma cases, crisis care, and family issues. My love for people didn’t stop growing there. I wanted to help more individuals on a wider scale. As a result I started the Traumagility podcast and coaching academy. I’m on a mission to help at least ONE MILLION individuals find healing in their lives.
