October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s that time of year again. So ladies go get your boobs checked. It’s important, really important. I should know. Six years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I’m one of the lucky ones. I went through treatment – chemo, surgery and radiation – and today I’m cancer free.

It was that bout with cancer that got me writing. I’d always wanted to write a book, but felt I had all the time in the world. Cancer made me realize that our time on this earth is limited and that if you really want to do something you shouldn’t delay.

You can pick up my short memoir, The Big C, about my struggle with cancer from all outlets for just 1.99. All the money raised from this title go to Knitted Knockers, a wonderful organization that provides soft breast forms for women who have had mastectomies.
