As many of you know, cancer is a main theme in my debut novel, When You’re Ready. It’s a disease that has affected us all in one way or another. We’ve all lost someone, known someone who has been diagnosed, or maybe you’ve fought the battle yourself.
In the last year, I’ve had my own cancer scare when my doctor found what they thought was a mass in my breast during a CT scan and last month, we lost my husband’s grandmother to liver cancer.
My emotional journey through my own cancer scare gave me the inspiration to write some amazing scenes in WYR, but I wanted to do more. Writing about something isn’t enough, and after losing someone again to a disease that seems to have no cure, I decided I could do more than just type.
During the entire month of September, I will donate 20% of my net profits from the sales of When You’re Ready to The American Cancer Society.
This is my way of putting my money where my mouth is. It’s not enough to just write about it. I want to show my support and help those who are just being diagnosed, those fighting their way through and the families who support them.
Please help me by sharing this post, telling your friends, family members and neighbors. Let’s make a difference.
