WARRIOR by Jessica Duemig

This product was recommended by Jessica Duemig from Warrior Guide Book

WARRIOR delves deep into the ups and downs of the nine most challenging months of the life of a single, career-driven, pre-kid, badass woman who takes no shit from anyone. This story isn’t a bitching session about a terrible predicament. It’s not an epic tale of finding love in the middle of a category five shitstorm. It’s a raw, real, uncensored, (hopefully) uplifting journey through the battle against Triple Negative, Metaplastic Breast Cancer. WARRIOR explores the hard times, the weird stuff, real life, the small victories and the What the fuck do I do now?. This book not only prepares the reader for what to expect following a breast cancer diagnosis, but it also outlines the emotional and mental parts of the battle. WARRIOR leaves readers believing they can do anything.
