Louisville, CO (PRWEB) March 13, 2007
Joan Fraser Yeash, a registered nurse, takes you through her year fighting breast cancer in her first book, Curly, A Survivor’s Story, The Breast is Yet to Come. This is a sensitive and spiritual book giving insight to her thoughts and fears, setbacks and triumphs, and will pull on the heartstrings of anyone who has had their life or a loved one’s life changed by a cancer diagnosis and is published in conjunction with Lulu (http://www.lulu.com), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.
Curly is the author’s story of discovering a lump in her breast at age 47, after months of difficulty and stress taking care of a large family with aging parents in ill-health shouldering the needs of both as a member of the sandwich generation. Despite a normal mammogram and ultrasound just two months prior, Joan persisted in having a full evaluation despite the suggestion of medical professionals that it was nothing. What followed was a journey that would take her through several surgeries, chemotherapy, spiritual reawakening, and culminating in a triumphant completion of the Race for the Cure in Denver.
