Cynthia De Boer
Cynthia grew up in the Denver Colorado area and now lives
near Las Vegas Nevada. She enjoys traveling, meeting new
people and the outdoors. Her greatest loves are being a
wife, mother and grandmother.
Her career highlights include attaining a C-3 Construction

well as owning and operating an organizational consulting

She currently works as a disability advocate, and speaks on
prosthetic eyes, eye health, depression, writing, publishing
Cynthia De Boer’s career as an author, inspirational speaker
and disability advocate is fueled by her medical challenges
and life’s experiences. Her first book, Me, Myself and Eye,
The Realities of Living With a Prosthetic Eye has been
widely received as an honest and much-needed influential
resource. During her speaking engagements, Cynthia is
consistently asked how she maintains a positive attitude.
These questions are proof that her second book is definitely
needed. Freedom From Depression, No Matter What
Your Disability May Be. On the lighter side of things, her
latest book Jimmy’s Magic Turtle is a two-line rhyme
children’s book for ages four to eight. It is about the make-
believe world of Jimmy (a five-year-old boy) and his best
friend Timmy (a wonderfully magical turtle). Part of this
book’s proceeds will be donated to ‘The Marfan Foundation’
to honor my nephew, Jimmy.
