"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I didn't know what to do or how I was going to get through it. I found my way with the help of caring family and friends and by writing about all that I was going through. I kept a journal for the first year and that became the basis for my book Welcome to the Amazon Club. Writing about the challenges of breast cancer can be 'good therapy' and it helped me understand all that was happening to me, and how life changed as a result."
