Stories of Hope

During October, let’s share and receive hope.

As a Breast Cancer survivor, I recognize how blessed I am, and I want the same for you and your families. Every October, you and I will help spread HOPE. Here, you can read stories my readers have shared from their personal experiences.

If you would like to share a story about your Breast Cancer journey, a journey you made with someone else who has battled the disease, or if you are a care-giver (professionally or personally), please send it to me on my Contact page.*

Finally, remember that during October, I donate the profits from ALL my book sales to organizations that help individuals fighting cancer with their unmet needs. Now you can complete some early Christmas shopping and know your purchase is helping fight cancer!
