    Carol Ann Cole is an author, professional speaker, former Vice President with Bell Canada and the founder of the Comfort Heart initiative, which has raised over one million dollars for cancer research. She has received the Order of Canada, the Golden Jubilee Medal, the Terry Fox Citation of Honour, the elite Maclean's Honour Role and numerous other awards. Carol Ann is profiled in 'Canadian Who's Who' and in the 2005 edition of '1000 Great Women of the 21st Century,' published by the American Biographical Institute in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    Carol Ann's third book, If I Knew Then What I Know Now, shares her incredible journey of the path she has walked from ages sixteen to sixty. She writes of the clarity that comes with age and, in her case, a recurrence of cancer sixteen years after her initial diagnosis. This book includes Carol Ann's passion for family, honesty, helping others, the bond of friendship, and much more. If you are looking for that special book that will give you hope and courage, this is the book for you. What works for this Valley girl might also work for you - you may even see images of yourself in many of her life's lessons.
