October is Breast Cancer Awareness month but really every day we need to keep our thoughts focused on battling this disease that affects so many of us, in so many different ways.
Meet my friend Erin Arbabha, a lively, lovely, energetic and engaging woman.
Her book, I Have Survived: One Woman’s Ten-Year Journey As A Breast Cancer Survivor, is a powerful resource that contains helpful guidelines for cancer patients, caregivers, family, friends, and employers.
As Erin battled breast cancer she had the foresight to record the details of her journey, never thinking she would ever use the information for anything more than her own needs. As time passed, she became aware of how her story might benefit others.
Endorsed by The Komen Foundation, this book is part memoir and part helpful guide for family, friends, employers as well as patients and healthcare providers. With the help of meticulous notes kept throughout the hills and valleys of her battle, Erin has been able to provide readers with a comprehensive guide as well as a touching, inspiring story of resilience, strength and promise.
