Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Chicken Soup for the Soul Giveaway and Share Your Story of Hope with Beliefnet

October is national breast cancer awareness month.

To raise awareness, Alice Muschany -- my generous critique group buddy and a breast cancer survivor herself -- has donated a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope & Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey to give away on my blog.

Alice's warm and witty essay, "Hats Off to Betty With Love," is included in the anthology. Compiled by Dr. Julie Silver of Harvard Medical School, the book contains "inspirational stories and medical advice for a healthy you!"

For a chance to win a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope & Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey, just leave a comment on this post by October 31. Winner's name will be announced in November.

Also, the editors at Beliefnet are looking for inspirational stories from breast cancer survivors. Stories with a message of "hope for the past, present and future" should be no more than 200 words. Winning story will be awarded $250 by Beliefnet.com.

Thanks, Alice, and hats off to you and other breast cancer survivors!

  1. Thus far I have been spared breast cancer, but two friends have not...well more than two really. One had horrible two years with it...still watches and waits to see. I would share this book with her should I win.

  2. Donna--I have two friends who have had breast cancer. One died. The other is a strong survivor. I'm sure Alice's story is a wonderful one...

  5. That book sounds like the ideal gift for someone who's newly diagnosed with breast cancer. And of course we all know a few of them.

  6. Thanks Pat. The book is wonderful for caregivers as well. Not all of the stories have a happy-ever-after ending, but all show a tremendous amount of courage.
