Things you dont want to hear: Your Wife has Breast Cancer – Todd Sawicki

Todd’s pitch

There’s no real good way to break the news, as Katie and I have learned – we just found out Katie has breast cancer. We’ve been telling the world since well before everyone could see from Katie’s baldness what was going on. And we learned a lot about how to tell people that you or someone important in your life has cancer.

 

Editor’s Note: All of us at Ignite Seattle extend our thoughts and well wishes to Todd and his family as they work through this difficult time.

How I Learned to Appreciate Dance Being Married to a Ballerina – Todd Sawicki

At past Ignites, we’ve learned that being married to a geek or startup jock can be rough and finding that geek girl can be tough but rarely, do we hear the geek’s side of the story.

Todd Sawicki takes us on a trip into his married life and shares what he has learned being married to a former professional ballerina. Most of us couldn’t tell the difference between a first and fifth position and a Plié vs. a Passé.

In this passionate talk, we learn that even a geek can learn to appreciate and love classical dance.
