Leslie Lawrence’s I’m a lucky woman: A Photographic Memoir of a Breast Cancer Survivor offers a compelling portrait of one woman’s triumphant cancer journey.
Undaunted by a breast cancer diagnosis received in 2016—and expected for most of her life—Leslie was determined to face her illness head-on. She chronicled her emotional and physical experiences over a five-year period, taking candid snapshots to document her progress during treatment and recovery.
I’m a lucky woman is a cancer story like no other, told in deftly crafted stories and amplified with meaningful haikus, humor and photographs that are revealing, raw and real. Her heartfelt musings on her journey accompanied by unforgettable images make this read memorable and meaningful.
Her journey from breast cancer patient to survivor is a beautiful reminder that a diagnosis is not a death sentence.
Her book is an offering of hope.
