A Cup of Comfort for Breast Cancer Survivors

On  this date, July 17, in 1889, Erle Stanley Gardner, detective writer and creator of the Perry Mason series was born.

cupaaliceThe book I’ve chosen to discuss this week is A Cup of Comfort for Breast Cancer Survivors, published by Adams Media and edited by the amazing Colleen Sell.  A Cup of Comfort for Breast Cancer Survivors is an anthology of touching true stories of courage and triumph.

One of my favorite essays is “Hidden Treasures” by Alice Muschany, a breast cancer survivor and a fellow member of the Coffee and Critique writers’ group.  Alice’s story is just one of the scores of essays in this inspirational anthology that celebrates “strength, resilency, and hope.”

In addition to publishing an inspiring anthology of stories written by courageous survivors, Adams Media donates a portion of the sales of each book to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

    Hi Alice,
    You are one courageous woman, as well as a survivor and an inspiration to others. Hope Roland’s surgery goes well tomorrow.
    And, your book signing on Saturday was great! Here’s to many, many more!
