2018 Plenary Speaker is Fran Drescher
Fran Drescher has a reputation for passion and commitment. She received two Emmy and two Golden Globe nominations for her portrayal as the lovable “Miss Fine” on CBS’s hit series The Nanny, which she both created & executive produced. TV Land aired the ground-breaking sitcom Happily Divorced, which she also created, executive produced and starred in. The series was inspired by her own life; Fran played a woman sharing a loving friendship with her gay ex-husband. An accomplished author, Fran received the prestigious NCCS writer’s award for Cancer Schmancer, which along with Enter Whining, were New York Times best sellers. Most recently she penned the celebrated children’s book Being Wendy. Fran recently made her Broadway debut as “Madame” in Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Tony-award winning Cinderella. Her famous voice is currently featured in the top-grossing film Hotel Transylvania 2, in which she reprises her role as Eunice, the wife of Frank Stein.
A 17-year uterine cancer survivor, Fran turns lemons into lemonade and pain into purpose through her leadership as a cancer advocate. Her mission is to shift America’s focus toward proactive health care and healthy, toxin-free living. She believes that that the best cure for cancer is not getting it in the first place. As Founder, President and Visionary of the non-profit Cancer Schmancer Movement, she focuses on three prongs to fight the disease: Early Detection, Prevention, and Advocacy.
Fran has won countless awards for her leadership in the health space, including the John Wayne Institute Woman of Achievement Award, the Gilda Award, City of Hope Woman of the Year Award, The Albert Einstein Medical School Lifetime Achievement Award, Queens College Lifetime Achievement Award (2017), and the 2014 Citizen Artist Award. The Knesset in Israel honored Fran as the first Jewish actress who played an openly Jewish character embraced by not only Israel, but by many Arab nations. She was also honored with the Human Rights Campaign’s Ally for Equality Award for her efforts to defend civil liberties and, most recently, the Stonewall and Liberty Bell Awards for her advocacy of Gay Civil Liberties.
