October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and a Cherry Hill, NJ woman is out with a book of stories from the front lines of the fight.
Norma Roth (above) is a breast cancer survivor herself and knows firsthand the toll the battle against the disease, even if successful, can take.
Inspiration is a key ingredient of her book, Pink Ribbon Journey, a collection of 14 profiles:
“From what people have told me, it speaks to anyone whose life was touched by breast cancer because there are many different perspectives.”
Stories include those of survivors, the son of a woman who died, and the medical specialists who make every battle their own.
“And they were an integral part of my own breast cancer journey. They were my cheerleader, my confidant, they just made the whole experience that much more bearable.”
As will, hopefully, this book. You can see free excerpts online at pinkribbonjourney.com.
