Steven Csorba was born in Edmonton in 1964. He is a cancer survivor, community builder, wellness advocate and artist who projects the drive and depth of a person who knows life is precious. There is a focus in every waking moment, a kind of deep-truth view that gives cruisers through life pause for thought.
In 2003, he challenged the conventional approaches to cancer survivorship. In fact his goal was not to beat cancer – but instead he focused on helping others and did so in the biggest way he could. To cope with numerous surgeries, radiation treatments and a disruptive ten year battle and rehabilitative process, he developed a ruthlessly simple and powerful “me to we” belief system of giving back, self improvement and inspiring others.
As a measure to improve the quality of his mental and physical health, Steven used Arts in Medicine Therapy as an alternative to traditional pain medication and trained like an Olympic athlete to elevate his immune function as well as to test the efficacy of pre-habilatative medicine. His ground breaking work in this regard is now being validated through clinical studies and becoming standard practice for leading cancer care clinics worldwide.
From 2013-2015, he led and convinced countless corporate sponsors to come together to build a safe place for endangered traumatized youth at iHuman to turn their life around through creativity and community building. As a dedicated savvy do-gooder and through art donations, he has helped raise over $5 Million for a variety of charities in Alberta.
Prior to his cancer battle, Steven was an award-winning brand communication strategist and public speaker. His visionary work for clients like Industry Canada , Xerox, Apple, The Department of National Defence, The Alberta Government, NAIT, The United Way has been recognized by the Smithsonian Institute for innovation in risk managed digital brand building.
