Today I'm helping put together a party for a true celebration: the release and signing of the book "The Gown Opens in the Front," written by my dear friend Rachael Logsdon.
Rachael is not yet 35 years old, and she is a breast cancer survivor.
What's brilliant about the book is how it details not only her physical battle and victory, but the triumph of her spirit, as well. For every tale of sickness and sadness Rachael experienced, she has two to three anecdotes that make you laugh out loud.
Through all of her pain, her moments of discouragement, Rachael's sense of humor and her innate strength were never suppressed by the cancer or the chemo.
Rachael is one of a kind, and her book is a beautiful reminder of that. It was a genuine honor for me to be asked to serve as a friend-lance editor on her work before the book went to press. (Thank you, Rach!)
Please check out her Web site: http://wheresmyboob.comweeblylink_new_window and learn a bit about Rachael, her book and battling cancer in general. I truly believe each of us can find something on that site to relate to.
So, here's to Rachael, and to the thousands of cancer patients and survivors everywhere. May God bless you all.
