The former co-host of TV's "Dancing with the Stars" and "Entertainment Tonight," Samantha Harris, was the keynote speaker at Edward-Elmhurst Health's recent "Unstoppable You," a Healthy Driven Wellness Forum in Oak Brook.

Harris was diagnosed in 2014 at age 40 with stage II invasive breast cancer. She shared her treatment journey in a video diary that aired on "Entertainment Tonight" and the E! Network.

Along with her husband, Michael, Harris founded the online community "Gotta Make Lemonade" to inspire positivity in the face of adversity.

She recently published her first book, "Your Healthiest Healthy: 8 Ways to Take Control, Help Prevent and Fight Cancer, and Live a Longer, Cleaner, Happier Life."

"Unstoppable You," which was funded by the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation, also featured breakout sessions on healthy eating, how to ease stress and anxiety, tips for better sleep, options for weight loss and how to start an exercise plan.
