OUR COLLABORATIVE BOOK

Options
I wanted to make this a separate post from what was in a Teal Thursday category a bit ago.  
I, personally, would love to see this come to fruition. I have checked with OCC and there has NEVER been a collaborative book done before on Ovarian Cancer.
So it was first initiated by @Hooodith that we each do a chapter for a book on our own journey. It was met with a wonderful response.
So, please let it be known who would like to do this, seriously and we will workshop through this together to have it come to fruition.
It does not matter the type of cancer you have or where you are at in your journey. I feel that in order for this book to be complete, it will be a compilation of many journeys and experiences.  It won't be full of the stats and generalities that we find on the internet but instead be full of life experiences to give a better whole picture to many out there.
So I encourage @jennhood624 to see if Hannah would like to weigh in with her journey with Juvenile Granulosa and all the other ladies out there with both the rarer types or complications of having a more common one and what that looks like.
So, come on ladies.....tell me again....who is in this?!!! <3
Let's get brainstorming and make this a reality!

    I am in, but still recovering from my shock. I will try to write something and send it but I am not good at how to send things. I don’t want to just send it into our teal thursday. If someone can describe what we want, my husband can do that work. Am I making sense?

    @Hooodith You heal yourself first. There is no rush. This is to see who is interested. Then I will figure out the best way to go from there.  I know that our behind the scenes lady, Marianne, suggested that there are ways of getting something published without ordering a ton of books etc.  Lots of things to look at.  If anyone has helpful tips/tricks, send them and if not, we will get through this together.
    For now, keep it in your mind and you get yourself better, @Hooodith Whatever happened has rocked you to your very soul. That will take some time to heal.  We are here for you whenever you are ready. 
    Hugs  <3

    @Hooodith I am thankful that the 'pain is easing a bit' for you.  I have every faith that you will express what you want when you feel you are ready.  If that does not happen and you choose to keep it to yourself as well, that is okay too. Whatever will help you overcome your experience and move forward in a healing way.  <3
