Christchurch Life Coach Fundraising for Cancer Sufferer


CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand September, 2012 – Karen Scott is a well known entrepreneur, professional speaker, life coach and author of inspirational book ‘Rising from the Rubble’, but what many may not know about this local Christchurch life coach is that she is also a tireless fundraiser for those in need. Despite herself having suffered from tragedy in the 2011 Christchurch earthquake which saw her buried under her own cafe building and having to rebuild financially after losing it all in the financial effects of the quake, Karen is once again raising much-needed funds for a local Christchurch family.

“I am fundraising for a little girl named Maddie Collins who needs a kidney transplant. This poor little girl’s mother also has cancer and to top it all off they are from Christchurch so they have felt the effects of the earthquakes just like the rest of us. This family has been through, and is going through, a lot and it touches my heart to know that the sale of my book can help them even a little in their battle against serious illness,” says Karen.

And this isn’t the first time this Christchurch life coach has given up her time so selflessly to raise money for families in need. Sir Peter Charles Leitch, Founder of the Mad Butcher Chain says of Karen, “I have known Karen Scott for several years now and I first encountered her when she was organising fundraising for someone with cancer. I was impressed with her community spirit and her tireless commitment to helping others. She is determined, inspirational and has a real strength of character...The greatest gift you can give anyone is your time and that is what Karen does is give her time to others. Best of luck with your book [Karen] and I hope it helps many people overcome their adversities.”

‘Rising from the Rubble’ details Karen’s traumatic experience during the Christchurch earthquakes and how she rebuilt her life.  It also includes stories of other inspiring people including sportspersons and entrepreneurs.

Professional speaker and advocate for ‘Rising from the Rubble’, Any Scott says, “Karen is one of those unique women who is not only aware, present and knowledgeable but she also has the get up and go to make a real difference... Karen goes above and beyond in helping others. She is a genuine caring soul...I am so excited she has finally shared some of her wisdom through writing this book.”
