Luci Berardi is a survivor of Metastatic Ovarian Cancer and the author of Chasing Rainbows. She and Todd Hutchcroft were married in 2008. Their newlywed marital bliss came to a standstill in October 2010. Luci was diagnosed with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer at the age of 42. She faced the greatest fight of her life. This couple’s additional challenge was whether or not they could weather this storm…..Their commitment to hold true to their vows and their unconditional love for one another, allowed them to persevere.
Upon completion of 6 months of chemotherapy, Luci received the news we all long to hear─ she was cancer free. From that moment on, Luci was inspired to help others in their own fight through volunteering with the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance, as well as speaking, and writing about the intimate details of her own fight.
Luci and Todd live in Bailey, CO with their two dogs, Tara and Rafferty. She remains passionate in her commitment to her yoga practice as she continues to teach yoga in Conifer, CO. Luci has a new found appreciation for the most precious gift of all ─ “Life”.“Being diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer does not need to be a death sentence.” Luci Berardi
