Author of the national best-selling novel Walk Beside Me, Christine Handy recounts her experiences with cancer, illness, and the power of friendship, prayer, and hope. Christine Handy is a wife, mother, and breast cancer survivor living between Miami,Florida and Dallas, Texas.

An accomplished model in both the national and international sphere, Christine began modeling at the tender age of 11 in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. Through her career, she has done campaigns for notable brands including Guess, J. Crew, JC Penney, Bud Light, Pepsi, Petco and Target. Modeling up until her cancer diagnosis, Christine now aims to serve as a spokesperson, speaker and Ambassador for cancer-related causes.

On May 1, 2016 Christine released her first book Walk Beside Me, a fictional depiction of her illness and her long road to recovery. Walk Beside Me is a tale of sickness and triumph, of being comfortable in your own skin, of valuing the things that have true value, and of learning to fight for yourself and what you truly want. It's the story of a woman who peels away the layers to find her inner warrior, a woman who faces insurmountable odds and—thanks to her earthly Angels—learns to treasure the gift of God's infinite light and love. 

Christine says “It took nearly dying to realize how much I want to live.”

As a professional keynote speaker she has addressed national organizations on the topics of breast cancer and walking including the American Volkssport Association.
