Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

I have known Tracy for more than a decade, and watched her overcome many challenges, including cancer. It is through our own struggles that we learn to seek the growth and development that is possible when we embrace, rather than resist whatever comes our way. Being Single, With Cancer takes the reader on a spiritual journey that solidifies for them that they are not alone, they have options, they are lovable and loved, and further that they are powerful, inspirational and divine in their own right.

After hearing the three scariest words in the English language — you have cancer — on three separate occasions in college, I learned how difficult it can be for young adults to navigate cancer which is what led me to found the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, and what leads me to endorse Being Single, With Cancer. Like the Foundation, this book provides resources, support, guidance, and most of all, hope for those who may feel alone in facing cancer.
