The book that my sister and I began working on a little over four years ago will soon be available for purchase. And We Write: Surviving Cancer is a compilation composed by a variety of individuals from India to California to New York. The entries are in an array of literary styles that uniquely convey contributors’ experiences with the disease.
Though the book is in honor of Mrs. Clara May Lewis, (my mother) who succumbed to cancer in 2006, the project is also a testament to the strength and endurance with which all cancer victims cope with a debilitating and life altering illness.
Cancer just doesn’t attack an individual; it attacks an individual and his or her loved ones. We all become victims of this disease once someone who we love is diagnosed.
I will let you all know the official release date. It will be available on Amazon.com(with available overnight shipping), Barnes & Noble’s website, Borders’ website, Books A Millions’ website, and by special order to “bricks and mortar” bookstores. It will also be available for purchase directly through Wheatmark Inc.
All proceeds from the sale of the compilation will be donated to cancer research and or cancer support services. We cannot physically fight the disease, but we can aid those who are diagnosed and financially assist research efforts.
The book will be $15.95. If you do not think that you will be able to make a purchase, then please spread the word …
