About the BookIn this book, the author focuses on a fairly brief 2-year period of her life, beginning with her diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in 2016. However, as the author states so eloquently, the "book is not about cancer. It's about life. It's about love. It's about laughter. It's about me....And maybe, it's about you."
"This is a book that will help cancer patients. It will inspire, motivate, engender thought and yes, make you laugh. I will highly recommend it to all my patients." Dr. Brian DiCarlo, Oncologist.
What does a story about a woman who had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer have to do with fishnet stockings, a flood, some Russians, the Tenth Commandment, superheroes and Galileo?
In a brief two-year period of mishap and mayhem--the effects of chemo, car crashes, asbestos, a hip replacement, conflicting emotions, guilt and envy--the author began a series of email updates to family and friends to keep them abreast of her treatments and to allay their fears that, as is often the case with pancreatic cancer, she had just been handed a death sentence. Those updates, delivered with humor and a delightful sassiness, expanded to include other catastrophic life events and became the driving force behind her book. In the author's words, "humor was important because, without the ability to laugh, the urge to surrender would be too strong."
This book will inspire people of all ages from all walks of life but will be especially meaningful for those facing difficult life challenges, particularly those with a serious or life-threatening disease, such as cancer.
This book inspires, motivates, engenders thought, and yes, makes you laugh. Above all, it will help others facing their own difficult cancer journeys. I intend to recommend it to all my patients.
Dr. Brian DiCarlo, Oncologist
