“Diary of a Terminal Woman” tells a story of life and a woman’s triumphant battle against malignant brain tumor

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, more than 17, 000 people in the United States are diagnosed each year with a brain tumor. Some of these are benign, others are malignant. But what and how is the real battle against this condition taken by the victims? Author Catherine Leah Solomon provides readers a vivid glimpse into the struggles of a brain cancer patient – and survivor – in her book, Diary of A Terminal Woman.

Diary of a Terminal Woman comprehensively recounts Solomon’s poignant and valiant journey through life with cancer. In this journal, she weaves her experiences from the beginning of her illness to her battles against it. From the alleged migraine that accompanied with nausea to seizures, she was diagnosed with a Grade 3-4 Glioblastoma Multiforme, a right frontal malignant brain tumor. She received 6522 radiation ‘rads’ to the tumor to destroy it, and also a good round of chemotherapy, but it grew back again. From then on, her life is filled with numerous memories and experiences that she could not forget. Readers will take a journey with her and learn of her experiences and struggles, the chemotherapy and treatments, the excruciating pains and agony that she went through with cancer, and her faith in God that helped her live. But, how did she really survive against her illness?

“Cancer ‘victims’ do generally feel a kind of ‘kinship’ with one another, no matter what type of cancer they have. It’s still a devastating experience. I hope it will help you as a reader to understand my cancer experience and hopefully be able to feel my experiences as I lived through them each day,” she said.

Solomon has written this material not as a ‘how to’ book, but as inspirational instrument that will help those dealing with similar circumstances. It is available in trade paperback and trade hardback formats.
