Giving Back

As promised, a portion of the proceeds from each copy of IF I FALL APART is donated to fighting cancer:

November 2014: Seven years after completing active cancer treatment, I finally participated in my first Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on Nov. 2nd. Generous family and friends sponsored me through $175 in donations to this worthy charity. In turn, Whiteginger Press matched their donations bringing the total to $350 to support breast cancer research!
