Author Sandra Fikus shares her inspiring story so that others may not lose hope

Cancer is one of the most lethal diseases in the world today. It has affected numerous lives, including author Sandra Fikus’. In January 2008, she had a lumpectomy and was told she had breast cancer. “The moment I was diagnosed, I felt compelled to write down what was happening to me,” she shares. “I’m not sure why. Maybe it was a way of expressing myself, of ‘getting it off my chest.’”

A personal journey from treatment to complete healing, Getting it off my Chest records what was going inside and outside Fikus’ head. It uncovers that pivotal point in her life, and how she managed to get through it and turn her life around by reconnecting to her spirituality. Furthermore, it also details her therapeutic treatment in 2008 and the circumstances that made her move forward with courage and audacity despite the obstacles.

Throughout the pages of Getting it off my Chest, readers will find inspiration and courage that should be within every person. Fikus hopes that everyone who reads her story may find at least one thing that may help them during a difficult time or treatment.
