The Pink Badge of Courage: A Young Mother's Battle with Breast Cancer and Melanoma

Type: 
Book
Description: 

This is the story of a young mother who prevailed through three cancer diagnoses and treatments (two breast cancer and one melanoma). It describes how she juggled cancer treatments with the many other daily demands of working full-time and mothering. The story is set against the backdrop of a close friendship in which two women, both touched by disease and tragedy, gain strength from each other. The author's feelings about her cancer experiences are mirrored in her evolving view of a pair of pink-ribbon earrings that come to represent a badge of courage for her. Finally, the author describes the closure that she has attained following her family's relocation to her hometown, and she offers several lessons that she learned from these cancer experiences.
