The Cancer Effect

The Cancer Effect is the true story of my journey with breast cancer. I share it with the hope of helping others who face a cancer diagnosis, as well as their families who are compelled to travel with them.

This book took six years to write as I learned to navigate the physical, mental and emotional effects of cancer. If my experiences help you know you’re not alone in this journey, and if you find hope and courage in the pages of this book, I have succeeded in more than just surviving.
