About the Book

“A Diary of Healingis honest, real, scary and hysterically funny and I feel honored to have read it. I know anyone who picks it up will feel the same way.”

-Jessica Podoshen, The Oprah Magazine


“Mary Ann Wasil's hilariously touching account of her battle with breast cancer will have you laughing even as you're reaching for the tissue box. “

-Meg Cabot, Author of The Princess Diaries and Size 12 and Ready to Rock


At the time of my diagnosis, I scoured the bookstores and internet for stories that would lift me up, tell me this was do-able. I found very few. My story is your story, as long as your story is filled with unflinching hope.


Since I can’t be right beside you to hold your hand and tell you “you can do this,” I hope this book will be the next-best-thing.
