Profiting isn't everything! Sometimes it's about helping others!

My husband was thirty-six years old when he was diagnosed with Testicular cancer back at the beginning of January 2011. He had surgery and endured four cycles of chemotherapy, twenty rounds in all.…Continue

As someone who always speaks her mind, I have a tendency to tell it like it is. Some people find it refreshing while others would rather I shut up. At any rate, I've been struggling trying to get…Continue

I don't have one favorite! Most books influence and inspire me, so I can't limit myself to one pick!
About Me:
I've written three manuscripts in two and a half years. My third published book is available in eBook format. Here's a brief description:

We'd been married for almost eleven years. Our union had produced two healthy, beautiful children. Our lives were filled with the routines most people flourish on. There had been some rocky times like most couples experience, but overall my husband and I were living unassuming lives. We never anticipated our world could change in a short amount of time, but on a cold winter night at the beginning of January 2011 it did. Suffering from pain in his groin, Eric was sent by our family physician to a hospital thirty minutes from our home to get an ultrasound. Our doctor suspected a contortion of the right testicle, and he acted quickly. Upon further investigation, Eric was found to have two masses contained in his right testicle. The preceding months would test our strength as a couple. It was hands down the darkest period of our lives to date. I chose to document what we went through in the hopes our experience can give comfort to those on a similar journey. The battle against Testicular Cancer was one my husband won, but it's a battle my family will never forget. From the beginning, I've emphasized Testicular Cancer is to men what Breast Cancer is to women. Because more women are affected by Breast Cancer every year, than men are affected by Testicular Cancer, this disease gets publicized with greater frequency. By revealing the everyday struggles we encountered, and the hardships Eric faced as a cancer patient, I hope to educate, enlighten, and bring attention to a disease that affects thousands of men all over the world. I can't emphasize enough to every man how important yearly check-ups are to maintaining his well-being. Pain is an indication something's wrong and should never be ignored. Testicular Cancer is a fast growing threat many men could catch in time if they just make sure to look for the warning signs. I want to thank in advance all those choosing to read our story. It's a personal one that wasn't always easy for me to write down, but by doing so I knew I might be able to inspire others to fight when faced with a cancer diagnosis.
