  • “LOVE A Street Smart Guide! At first, I honestly thought it was going to be hokey. But as I quickly read the chapters, the content was spot on. You managed to find the common threads of the breast cancer experience and offer ways to manage the challenges in a very wise, practical, funny way. Your message is very clear, it’s about YOU and your life and moving forward. I think this guide would be an amazing resource for women who are first diagnosed and starting their journey.
    “Well done! I’m very impressed. I will need to order these booklets, let me know the process please.”

A Street-Smart Guide to Getting Through Cancer was written for cancer patients by a cancer patient who actually lived it. It addresses the physical and emotional challenges a person faces while going through treatment.

The booklet explains the importance of being your own best advocate. It addresses difficult situations, feeling out of control, guilty and fearful. How to handle insensitive comments, etc… It teaches them to be kind to themselves with ‘ A Pass’ and encourages them to do more than be a patient.
