Nothing is More Powerful Than a Made up Mind

Welcome to CalmandStrong

Darryl C. Richie is an Inspirational Speaker, Author, Blogger, and founder of CalmandStrong. I’m looking to inspire with my story of being a two-time cancer survivor. During my teen years, I had knee cancer twice called Osteosarcoma from 1999-2000 and 2002-2003.


The inFAMOUS videogame franchise and superhero Cole MacGrath had a positive impact on my life. I’m looking forward to sharing how the game helped me overcome my many insecurities when I became a hip amputee.


Sometimes, superheroes don’t exist only in movies and video games. Sometimes, a Cole MacGrath is actually real and walking around. Learn about dealing with physical disabilities, overcoming adversities, and what life is like as a hip amputee & cancer survivor. Also learn the parables and comparisons between Darryl and Cole, who went through a similar fate of being hooked up to IV’s & overcoming hardships.


Audiences can expect to read and hear how I connect my experiences and realities of being a two-time cancer survivor to the digital world of the inFAMOUS videogame franchise and superhero Cole MacGrath.


You may think I'm a real-life superhero. But in reality, I'm just like you - someone who wanted to overcome their insecurities, anxieties, and conquer challenges.


My focus is to share my pain, struggle, and accomplishments with the world!
