The C Card and Me is a unique cancer survival guide for newly diagnosed cancer patients and their loved ones, written with the kind of humor and cheek that could only come from one who's been there, done that and has the C Card to prove it.

The C Card and Me - Cancer Survial Guide
"This book should be in every Doctor's office and a part of every cancer patient's care package.” – Gail Nigro

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."

These customer reviews sum it up by saying:

"This book should be in every Doctor's office and a part of every cancer patient's care package. Her story is told with humility, wit and unvarnished truth.” – Gail Nigro
