Niemi will appear on Friday's episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, on which she will also talk about the book she co-authored with her late husband, The Time of My Life.
Niemi was also a participant Tuesday in a roundtable discussion on "Grief, Healing and Resilience" at the Women's Conference 2009 in Long Beach, Calif.
