Review quote

Praise for Kris Carr and her bestselling "Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips" "I read "Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips" cover to cover on a a flight from LA to NY. I laughed out loud, wept quietly, and most of all, marveled at the magic that is Kris Carr. If Deepak Chopra, "What To Expect When You're Expecting, "and "Sex and the City" had a love child, it would look just like Kris' "Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips". It is sheer perfection for cancer 'cowgirls' and their loved ones--colorful, soulful, and intimate." --Rory Freedman, coauthor of #1 NY Times best seller "Skinny Bitch ""Kris is the ray of light that is needed to raise awareness of what it means to give back. What more can one wish for? She is a true leader of courage and inspiration."--Donna Karan "Kris Carr has done something extraordinary with this book: She has put cancer in its place. She has triumphed, and paved a path by which others can triumph too. She deserves our most heartfelt 'Bravo.'"--Marianne Williamson, author of "A Return to Love" and "Everyday Grace""" "Carr's documentary, and her new book, "Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips", may be the first girlfriend's guide to living with cancer--a sign of the times really. More and more people are living with cancer, and Carr's message is they can live full lives, they don't have to be "defined" by the c-word."--Kelly Wallace, "CBS News Correspondent" "Kris Carr's book is an excellent resource filled with tips on how to not only survive but thrive. . . . [T]he abundant information about life and living contained in this book will coach you in a way that will make you an empowered star performer and winner in the face of adversity." --Bernie Siegel, MD, author of "Love, Medicine & Miracles" and "Help Me to Heal"
