Scarred But Smarter : A Cancer Memoir and Get Healthy Manifesto
In a style reminiscent of a conversation with your best girlfriend, Natalie Holland gives readers a glimpse of what a cancer diagnosis is like for a young adult amidst a busy life with kids and an often-deployed husband. She reveals that being faced with challenging and unchanging circumstances while being pressed from all sides actually gives us an opportunity for immense personal growth. "Scarred but Smarter: A Cancer Memoir and Get Healthy Manifesto" is full of honest insights, humor through dark moments, practical tips, and life lessons. Extending beyond the personal experience of cancer, it also explores the toxic load we all face in our daily lives through our food and personal care products which threaten our health and offers solutions for reducing that load. "Though I am presently cancer-free, and so very grateful to say that, I am reminded that life is neither the same nor as simple as it was before breast cancer. I find that though I am scarred, I am definitely smarter. Smarter about life, love, and health." A portion of the profits from each purchase will benefit both First Descents and the REO Foundation.
