According to Macmillan Cancer Support research presented at the National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) conference held in Birmingham, England last June, “More than one in five breast cancer patients will have their disease recur”. This only goes to show how tremendously devastating breast cancer is, especially for those who are struggling to fight its grueling series of treatments. In line with this, a unique story of one woman’s journey through breast cancer is featured in the compelling work “Chemo in Heels”, which allows readers to view this disease in a less stressful and more uplifting way. Written by Lisa Grimaldi, this immensely unique book is nothing like those poignant and heart-wrenching cancer stories that are commonly encountered.    

Breast cancer is a serious and painful disease that can consume a person’s whole being. People deal with it in various ways. Whilst some experience a stage of self pity, others seek for the support of their family and friends. In Lisa Grimaldi’s case, she sought the comfort of her extravagant shoe collection. In this fascinatingly humor-filled book, readers will encounter the whims of an outlandish Italian woman whose love for vanity has helped her go through the most dreadful episode of her life.

In this book, readers will enjoy the comical and whimsical definitions of her treatment process, as well as the highly dramatic personifications of various designer labels and brands. Vivacious and entertaining, Grimaldi shares some snippets of her life in the most fashionable manner, allowing one to see breast cancer and chemotherapy in a lighter and more tolerable way. A must-read for every cancer survivor, “Chemo in Heels” is an eccentric epitome of how one can stylishly deal with life’s adversities.
