In a sea of reports of death by the hand of this disease, one voice causes a ripple by shouting back "Hell no, not me~".
The C Card and Me, is the inspiring story of how one self confirmed couch potato took a daunting diagnosis and turned it into a tale of triumph over stage IV cancer. Drawing from her own experiences battling this "punk-ass" disease, Ali Gilmore has created a veritable cancer survival guide for those newly diagnosed and their loved ones.
Being a rebel against grammatical rules and having a propensity to swear, Ali brings character and authenticity to this cancer survival story that is designed to be read in a day (under 70 pages). Packed into those pages are her insights and anecdotes, presented in her uniquely humorous and at times irreverent manner in order to shed some light on a rather dark subject and smooth the road ahead for others.
When asked what inspired her to write the book, she responded, "The day I was diagnosed my head was reeling. I wish someone had handed me an insider's guide like this from day one, then just as I wrapping up my treatment, a good friend told me her mother had been diagnosed. I knew exactly how they felt and how I could help. I started writing that day and didn’t stop until I was sure I covered everything crucial."
Her mission is to get The C Card and Me story into the hearts and minds of 1,000,001 people, so when someone asks her what she accomplished in life she can say “I helped over a million people become less afraid of cancer and better prepared to deal with it."
