    Charity gave a deeply moving and memorable keynote at the 5th annual DPharm conference based on her experience as an opera singer, who survived a debilitating and usually fatal lung disease by having two double-lung transplant operations at the Cleveland Clinic.

    Charity is one of 11 brothers and sisters and the granddaughter of Tom Lantos, the only Holocaust survivor to have served in the United States Congress. She was home schooled as a child and went on to study at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest.

    Charity’s memoir takes readers through her miraculous journey, which truly mirrors those of opera heroines, and includes her surgeries, her recovery and learning to sing with someone else’s lungs.

    The Encore is published by Simon and Shuster and you can order it on Amazon here:
