Giving Back and Fighting Cancer

Maureen Ingelsby never forgets the help she received all those years ago when she was a single mom raising five children. Maybe you are one of the many woman who told me how inspired you were by Maureen’s story in my book, Victorious Woman! Shaping Life’s Challenges into Personal Victories. Her chapter tells about what happened after her spouse just up and left one night, leaving Maureen with had five children under the age of eight, the youngest just a year old. It was a lot of mental focus and physical stamina that enabled her to stretch into victory during that difficult time. And Maureen has the help of friends, some of whom did so anonymously...and how it much of a difference their help made.

Well Maureen’s victories didn’t stop there. She had many others, including many career successes. Today Maureen is a top-selling real estate agent and most likely the most popular one in southeastern Pennsylvania. Over the years, she earned a series of designations, has the honor of being in the Century 21 Hall of Fame, and was named one of the Top Ten “Realtors You Can Trust” by Philadelphia Magazine.

Last Sunday, Maureen hosted a “thank you party” for clients, current and past. It was quite an event, especially considering the current economic climate. Held at a local wedding/conference center, and assisted by her wonderfully enthusiastic team, Maureen treated her guests to cocktails, buffet dinner, games, music and prizes. She introduced her team and then said something special about every single guest in the room. What an experience – one that left each person feeling pretty special.

This Saturday Maureen and her team are participating at the 19th Annual Eagle National Bank 5K Walk/Run to Fight Cancer at Delaware County Memorial Hospital. If you want to help Maureen's team, and cancer research, here's the link:
