Rainbows, Lollipops & Tough Bitches Fight Cancer presents sentiments associated with the cancer journey. From diagnosis, through treatment and remission, emotions range from joy, stupidity, fear, faith, humor, darkness and rebirth, all told in short stories by women. "When I first heard the word CANCER in my own diagnosis, I felt an enormous challenge ahead of me. This was potentially the worst enemy I could ever foresee battling. Instead, my faith and my personal mantra, Nothing Is Everything, became more real to me as I came to regard this challenge as a triumph and just another phase of my life ... but not the total sum of my life. Trust me ... the amazing stories in Rainbows, Lollipops & Tough Bitches Fight Cancer put together with such thoughtfulness will lift you, amuse you and probably make you cry. Such a perfect gift for the newly diagnosed or anyone connected to the cancer journey." - Camille Moten, singer, actress, author of Nothing Is Everything Cara Riggs is a transplant to La Jolla, California. After a thirty-year career in the Omaha Public Schools, most recently as an inner-city high school principal, she took early retirement to enjoy sunny San Diego. A year-long fight with breast cancer validated her blessings and her lifelong belief in always living life full throttle. Tammy Nance studied undergraduate marketing at Drexel University and received her master's in management from Lesley University. "Life isn't always rainbows, lollipops, and unicorns. Bad things do happen to good people, but at its core, life is about what you do with the bumps in the road while you are making the journey." She passed away during the process of finishing the book.
