Synopsis

These days there is so much written information about cancer in magazines, newspapers, blogs, and books that choosing what to read can be daunting, even overwhelming. This particular book is different from the rest; it’s not ‘just another cancer book’!

Chemosabe: Cancer Warrior is written as a series of life lessons, evocatively relayed and poignantly told. You’ll find out not just what it’s like to be on the cancer journey and how best to cope; you’ll discover how humour and humanity can shine through in the darkest moments. You’ll be told the survival lessons you need to know to ensure that you can face cancer with a tenacity that will surprise yourself and inspire your family and friends.

What Alana has to say will resonate with survivors of all ages and stages. Chemosabe: Cancer Warrior will help you navigate your fears about cancer and help you emerge out of despair and into hope.

“It has been a privilege to walk along side of Alana during her journey with Breast Cancer. I have learned so much through the eyes of my child and have become so much more a part of her life now that I really could not ask for more.”
Gloria Jean Buzkowski, Alana’s Mom

Alana Somerville is a vibrant, beautiful, stubborn young woman and mother who, when diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2010 at the age of thirty-three decided that she had no other option but to fight for her life. Instead of wallowing in self pity, Alana fought back and became her biggest advocate, which definitely played a huge part in her survival.
Alana is an elementary school teacher whose love of writing has led her into this career. It was through this passion for writing, teaching and surviving that this book was born. After a year of hell that included a cancer diagnosis, multiple surgeries and chemotherapy, it was through her will to live and not let herself be beat that she became her own advocate and played a major role in her own health care. She was inspired to write this book to help other women realize the importance of a positive attitude throughout this journey called “Cancer”, but she was also wanted to write this book so that her children could one day understand completely about this battle that she fought for them.

Chemosabe: Cancer Warrior
December 25th, 2014
I wish I had known about and read this book before my journey. It was emotional reading having experienced a lot of the same things along the way. This is a great read for anyone facing the same battle or for those that are supporting someone so they have a greater idea of what they are going through. This battle is fought on the inside, except for the hair loss, so no one knows how sick you are or even that you are sick. Alana, thanks for sharing your story. I wish you ongoing health!
