There are some things you just can’t make up.
That is the case when it comes to the life story of my guest, author Gwen Rosha Anderson. On the day she turned 28, her marriage was ending and she received news that she had cancer.
She recently published her first book titled My Three Lumps: Surviving Cancer and Divorce Simultaneously at 28.
We shared a wonderful conversation together over a great cup of coffee!
About Gwen Rosha Anderson And Her Book
This is a real, detailed story of cancer survival—both the inspiration of trudging through the rough spots and finding something wonderful at the end, and the reality of how brutal cancer and its treatment can be. She was just a normal teacher, married for just over two years when the storm broke. Unlike most breast cancer patients, Anderson had to deal with cancer, an unexpected divorce, and dealing with keeping her house, job, and sanity, all around her twenty-eighth birthday. Included is an extensive list of cancer resources for patients, survivors, caregivers, and their families.
Faced with pre-midlife crises at 28, Anderson quickly went from being a normal English as a Second Language teacher to being a poster child for how to survive breast cancer, divorce, keeping a job and a house, and maintaining sanity. A longtime keeper of journals, she finally shares her quiet, inner struggles and hopes to inspire cancer survivors of all ages and situations. She is now a teacher in Central Minnesota, happily remarried to her new husband, Kern, and with a new daughter, Stella.
