Stop Staring at My Tumor, My Boobs Are Down Here

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Saturday 9th March, 2013

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

The single life is crazy enough on it's own, but what happens when you add something like cancer to the mix? Dating coach and single girl Charlie Nox is about to find out.

On May 25, 2012, Charlie was diagnosed with papillary thyroid carcinoma. She's always said that anyone can be successful dating, no matter what their circumstances. Now she gets a chance to put her money where her mouth is and attempt what most of us could never imagine - dating with cancer.

Join Charlie for a behind-the-scenes, uncensored look at her crazy adventures dating as an “out” cancer patient. She will share all her successes, failures, embarrassing moments, scary challenges, and awesome wins. She will also share the insights, stories, and victories of her clients who are dating with cancer and other chronic health issues.

Learn how vulnerability is your greatest strength and how YOUR “undateable” qualities (hint – we all have something!) are actually your access to finding what you really want.

Featured as one of the Top 100 Sex Bloggers of 2012, Charlie has been dishing out dating advice since middle school. From hand drawn diagrams of female anatomy, to kissing lessons behind the big tree after school, she has always been committed to giving the nice guys a chance.

Charlie has spoken with university and high school students around the country about dating and sexuality. She has hosted elite dating events and told dirty stories at erotic showcases from Austin, TX to San Francisco, CA. This coming March, she will be leading a presentation at South by Southwest Interactive titled Stop Staring at My Tumor, My Boobs Are Down Here.
