This book was originally written one year after my battle with cancer, and was titled "A Tale of 2 Boobies".   I have finally revised that original book to remove some of the photos that I can't believe I had the audacity to publish in 2014. 


I am revisiting these pages and sharing them again largely unchanged, preserving the raw honesty and authenticity of my original words.  My hope is that this book continues to resonate with readers who are navigating their own paths through illness, offering insights, comfort, and inspiration drawn from my personal experience.


"Surviving the Storm: My One Year Battle with Breast Cancer" is a poignant memoir chronicling the author's courageous journey through a year-long battle with breast cancer. Through candid reflections and heartfelt narratives, the book delves into the emotional turmoil, physical challenges, and moments of resilience encountered during this life-altering experience. From initial diagnosis to treatment milestones, the author shares intimate insights into the impact on her family, relationships, and personal identity. With honesty and grace, "Surviving the Storm" offers a compelling narrative of hope, healing, and the power of perseverance in the face of adversity. This memoir is a testament to the human spirit's capacity for strength and resilience in times of crisis.
