A Year Lost, a Life Gained: Fighting Breast Cancer with Wit, Humor, Friends and a Perky Poodle
Suzanne Dalton, author
Suzanne Dalton has accomplished much in her life-she is an artist, writer, actor, web designer, and program manager. The one undertaking for which she did not sign up was breast cancer. In her new memoir, A Year Lost, A Life Gained: Fighting Breast Cancer With Wit, Humor, Friends and a Perky Poodle, humor guides Suzanne through difficult decisions about treatments, surgeries, and reconstruction. Her story, told through witty letters to friends, includes a party before surgery, a zany poodle, and refusal to let cancer define her. This memoir is a beautifully-told story and a guide to aid anyone diagnosed with a life-threatening medical event whether they've completed the journey or are just embarking upon the path.
