► Living Cancer Free (eBook & Softcover):
Everyone loves the story of a survivor but the road to becoming one requires the curiosity, strength and courage of a warrior.
"Living Cancer Free" is an auto-biographical story by 15-year cancer survivor, Sara Quiriconi, Live Free Warrior. Self-proclaimed the modern day Holden Caulfield with a cancer twist, Quiriconi cites her history and real-life "cancerous" struggles with anorexia, bulimia, alcohol addiction, lymphoma cancer, divorce, PTSD, unfulfilling jobs, and more. This true story is not just for someone experiencing an actual diagnosis, but rather anyone seeking the light within their own darkness, or "cancers".
Divided into the three sections, Part 1 describes Quiriconi's life B.C. (before cancer). Part 2 recaps her discovery of purpose, love and living free A.D. (after cancer's death). Part 3 Workbook with exercises and tools to Living a "Cancer-Free" life, from the lessons and experiences shared in Part 1 and 2 of the novel.
This book will transform anyone who reads it, to live life to its fullest, like a warrior, and empowers readers to embrace the big C: CHOICE.
"If you have cancer: this book is for you.
If you have a friend going through cancer: this book is for you.
If you don't have cancer, keep it that way: this book is for you.
If you feel stuck, in any area of your life, and looking for change: this book is for you.
"Get it? You don't need to have cancer to read this book, or to gain positive, life-changing use out of it! How is that so? Even though I live a healthier lifestyle now, and living free of the various cancers that plagued my life (mentally, physically and emotionally), I wasn't very healthy in my approach to food, my mindset or my lifestyle for a good chuck on my life from 14 years old on.
This book aims to illuminate, insight and inspire its readers to awaken to the life they can choose to live. Because "while we cannot always pick the hand of cards we've been dealt, we certainly can choose how we play them."
