Solo Survivor: Lessons on Life & Love, Hope & Health From Facing Cancer Alone will be brought to life through the generosity of this group.

You can help me bring a life-long aspiration to life! I have always been a writer, and have wished I could find a way to make my living doing that. Just over five years ago, when I was diagnosed with cancer, I finally discovered what I was meant to write about. Once I had a topic, there was no stopping me. For five years, I have written a monthly column about living with cancer as a single person. It has been a passion, and many people tell me it has helped them.

Now, two publishers are interested in turning that column into a book. I am thrilled! I am also daunted by what it costs to bring a book to market these days and to market it effectively so it sells. I don't have the money right now to make it happen. Most people think of big advances and tours set up by publishers, but that is not the norm for a first-time, unproven author.

I am asking for your help to bring my book to life this year. I know it will make a huge impact on single people and cancer survivors. I believe cancer came into my life to teach me how to ask for help. I am learning to receive that help gratefully from my friends and supporters. This is all I want for Christmas and my Birthday for the next several years! Anyone who contributes $250 or more will be acknowledged in the book AND $100 or more will receive a FREE copy. Can you help?
