Again: Surviving Cancer Twice with Love and Lists, an Amazon bestselling Memoir from Köehler Books.
Almost 40% of women and men will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetimes—Christine Shields Corrigan has been part of those statistics twice. With a frank, witty, and down-to-earth voice, Chris invites us to follow her parallel cancer journeys as teen and adult, her desperate desire for normalcy, and gradual acceptance of the grace that comes from others’ help. Chris also offers practical guidance gained only from experience. An any woman’s story of resiliency and hope that life is possible beyond a diagnosis or even two, Again will appeal not only to those touched by cancer, but also to individuals faced with a life challenge who seek a path forward.
“This unflinching story of strength and vulnerability pairs the practical with a heartfelt glimpse into the inner workings of healing. Corrigan has mapped out a touching journey and a helpful guide for anyone who has had to deal with cancer, through their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of a loved one.”
“Candid, sagacious writing on illness and adaptation.”
