In 2018 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, while undergoing an aggressive course of treatment, which included a double mastectomy without reconstruction surgery, chemotherapy which resulted in complete hair loss and everything else related to the cancer, I spoke to my daughters openly and in a way that they could understand my disease and not feel threatened about possibly losing their mother. My experiences and the way I fought through the difficult days of treatment led to writing this book about communicating a diagnosis of cancer to my daughters and how others with the same condition can convey the ultimate message being “Mommy may look different, and it will take time for Mommy to heal – but in the end, she will get better!”
Once Mommy Has a Boo-Boo was written other books and journals followed. I found a passion for helping women going through a breast cancer diagnosis. I wanted to pay it forward and help others.
