As much as breast cancer takes from us, our stories persist as gifts to ourselves and to the many others who know or will know our pain, suffering, and fear. Pink Moon Lovelies: Empowering Stories of Survival, by Nicki Boscia Durlester, is a unique collection of such gifts. A BRCA2 positive breast cancer survivor, Nicki started a Facebook group in an effort to create a safe place for those with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer risk to discuss their stories, their feelings, their questions. That group grew and evolved and inspired Nicki to gather and compile fifty of those stories into a book. The book includes breast and ovarian cancer survival stories, as well as previvor stories. This book has already risen to #9 on Amazon’s best-sellers list for cancer books and for good reason. Each story is quite unique and yet there is a common thread that runs through them, the beautiful humanity of each and every woman impacted by breast and ovarian cancer.
