Send A Little Love

Cancer sucks.

I don’t think I know a single person who hasn’t been touched by cancer in one way or another. I’ve lost a grandfather, two cousins and two uncles to various kinds of cancer. screen-shot-2016-10-01-at-7-56-50-am I have witnessed first hand how it can ravage a person’s body. I hate this disease, no matter which form it takes; breast, ovarian, prostate, liver, blood or bone.

In addition to those beautiful people we lost to cancer, there are survivors. My maternal grandmother and her sister were breast cancer survivors. I also have an aunt and a very dear friend who have survived breast cancer. Each of them met this challenge head on with grace and dignity, and yes, a lot of tears.

If you’re a survivor or a caregiver, know that I admire you. This is an ugly disease that I hope we can someday eradicate.

My grandmother chose to use humor to deal with her mastectomy.  No matter how much pain she was in, she refused to let us see it. I went to visit her a couple of weeks after her surgery and asked her how she was feeling. I will never forget her response. “I seemed to have misplaced my plastic boobie and now, I’m walking around in circles, veering left.”  I about fell out of my chair!

Seeing first hand how this disease not only affects the lives of the cancer victim, but also their families and caregivers, I jumped at the chance to help with Romance Has A HeartOver 100 authors have joined together to donate over 2,000 books to breast cancer survivors and caregivers.

There are no hoops to jump through. You can browse by genre or heat level and pick a book you’d like to give to either a cancer survivor or their caregiver. There are digital books and paperbacks galore! I’m giving away digital copies and paperbacks.

    Hello Suzan,
    I recently had a Mastectomy (Aug. 8th) and beat cancer for the second time. I’m doing A LOT of reading. It’s very nice of you and all the other authors to donate books. I would love to have one of your print books. Would that be possible? I’m putting my name and e-mail in this post.Thank you for this post and your kind words. I appreciate it. And I look forward to hearing from you.

    I lost my father to cancer and my husband has cancer. I couldn’t get him hog-tied to a share to read a romance book to him, and you know my TBR pile is double the ceiling. I will say that you authors have hearts of gold! How else can you touch mine so deepl? Bless you, Suzan. I will share.
