A Bump in the Road
By Nira Berry
My happiness journey of living a fulfilled, joyful life didn’t start in the happiest way. The path had to be created.
I had a wonderful life, and then suddenly along the way I was blessed with a bump in the road. That bump got in my way.
I discovered a lump in my breast at a young age, and was shocked the next day when I heard the breast cancer surgeon say these words: "You have breast cancer."
It's never a good thing to hear "You've got breast cancer. My mind and vocal cords couldn't coordinate the words I wanted to say. All I could say was "What?" I was stunned.
My mind filled with thoughts from, "I'm dying and I'll never see my kids graduate from high school and grow up" to "How am I going to tell my mom?"
I thought I would try it.
I noticed I was able to cope with my situation a little better. I made it my daily practice to laugh. I felt better and more positive as time went on. I thought “Wow!” I’ve got to let others know about this happiness and pain reducing vitamin- laughter.
This was, and is my mission to bring laughter and joy to everyone’s lives! This is when I created my LaughingRx Laughter Wellness programs to help other people.
Many people are looking for happiness and wellness - and laughter, as I discovered for myself, laughter helped me physically, mentally and emotionally at a time when I needed it the most. I know that I can count on this to continue helping me in the future.
Nira leads a variety of laughter presentations, programs and events for corporate, groups, individuals and specialty groups such as cancer, seniors and physically and mentally challenged.

The Happiness Coach
Hi Nira, my colleague Meghann Schwartz met you over the weekend, and I wanted to contact you. I do programming for a number of women engagements for the Jewish Federation in Howard County, and I'd
like to get more information about what you do. Specifically, since we are very small with a limited budget, what do you charge? Hope to hear from you.
Thank you Nira for your uplifting laughter program for our annual meeting! Everyone was smiling for hours following!
