I received many informational pamphlets about cancer after my diagnosis, but couldn’t find a true resource that would help me feel comfortable with all the ladylike issues I was going to face.

Life can change in a minute. One day, you are a successful marketing executive investing your energy and focus on a high-powered career…and just like that, you receive the news that you are facing an aggressive Stage 3 cancer. That was the reality for author Donna Heckler when she was diagnosed in 2010 and the impetus for her latest book, “Living Like a Lady When You Have Cancer.”

The book provides practical tips that are intended to help readers live radiantly through all types of cancer treatments.

“I received many informational pamphlets about cancer after my diagnosis, but couldn’t find a true resource that would help me feel comfortable with all the ladylike issues I was going to face,” Heckler said.

What began as a journal that Heckler kept during her treatment, “Living Like a Lady When You Have Cancer” has evolved into a comprehensive volume that includes insights from medical professionals as well as personal stories from other patients.

With an informal style that at times evokes the conversation women have with their best friends, Heckler holds nothing back, sharing even the most intimate details of her experiences while keeping a sense of humor and graciousness.
