My name is Amor and I am a two-time cancer survivor working hard to self-publish my first book entitled, “Been There, Done That: Practical Tips & Wisdom from Cancer Survivors for Cancer Patients.”
I survived breast cancer in 2013 and ovarian cancer in 2016. Both experiences were literally life-changing in so many ways. I was blessed with the proverbial “new lease on life” and I strongly felt that I had to do “something”. I just didn’t know what that “something” was until after I shared, with a new cancer patient, some tips on how I coped with excruciating pain and how I worked with what I had every day to continue as much of my daily activities as I could. Practical stuff and, of course, wisdom borne from actual experience. That was my “AHA!” moment. I realized that I have new mission in life: To write a book that would make a positive difference and help others better cope and continue their daily life activities, in spite of cancer.
I also realized that my story alone, even from two cancer experiences, would be limited. I wanted to help and reach as many cancer patients as possible. So, I enlisted the help of 19 of my amazing survivor sisters and brothers, ages ranging from 21 to 91, with cancer backgrounds covering cancers of the blood & bone marrow (chronic lymphocytic leukemia), brain (glioblastoma) , breast (triple negative & triple positive, included), colon, kidney, ovaries, pancreas, prostate, rectum, salivary glands and skin.
I am ever so grateful to each of you: Bronwyn, Cindy, Hilda, Jacki, Jeannette, Joan, Rev. Linda, Rachel, Sondra, Susan, Tet, Vida, Bob, Glenn, JB, Rick, Scott &, last but certainly not least, Vince, for joining me in this endeavor to make a positive difference in the lives of those suffering from cancer! We are all indeed blessed to have you angels-on-earth share your vast knowledge & wisdom!
My book is on schedule to be published in 2 months, with distribution online (Amazon sites, B&N.com, etc.) and in brick-and-mortar stores, e.g. Barnes & Noble and the like. However, as I am not employed, I, unfortunately, do not have enough funds to cover the many expenses associated with self-publishing and distributing my book.
Your kindness and generosity in contributing to my Go Fund Me account would be very much appreciated! Further, all benefactors will receive a signed copy of my book, Been There, Done That: Practical Tips & Wisdom from Cancer Survivors for Cancer Patients. Just let me know where to send it to.
Thank you very much in advance for your consideration and generosity!
With much gratitude, peace & love,
