When I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in the summer of 2012, the doctors gave me notebooks filled with information that, honestly, I had no energy to sort through. Right from the beginning I wrote–I wrote about the surgeries, treatments, side effects, medicines, emotions, and the day-to-day life of breast cancer. And then after it was all finished, I researched and wrote some more.
My book, It’s Definitely Breast Cancer, covers everything from questions to ask your oncologist to wig care. It combines all the information I wish I had known in a concise, easy-to-read guide. It’s Definitely Breast Cancer also tells my story–the fears, the joys (yes, joys), and even horrors of having breast cancer. It’s a combination of my experiences and the information I compiled just for you, all written with a little humor, some encouragement, and a lot of love.
Since recovering from all the surgeries and treatments, I’m back to normal, whatever normal means. But just because I’m now in the post-treatment stage of breast cancer doesn’t mean the story is over. My research carries on as I continue to test new hair products, visit treatment centers in Chattanooga, and stay up-to-date on new developments in the cancer community, which is why I decided to start this blog. A continuation of my story and research, this blog is here to serve as a connection between you and me.
Here you can read more about my life during and after breast cancer, as well as learn about new products and information as I continue to immerse myself in the world of breast cancer.
As far as my book goes, we are quickly nearing publication! I am so excited (and a little nervous if I’m completely honest) for you to read this labor of love. I’ve worked diligently to create something with all the information I wish I had known during my own diagnosis. My prayer is that It’s Definitely Breast Cancer will encourage you through breast cancer or any other trial you are facing.
Be sure to follow the blog, give me a like on Facebook, and stay up-to-date on when you can purchase your copy of It’s Definitely Breast Cancer.
