Jill Foer Hirsch (@JillFoerHirsch on Twitter) joins host Craig Price to talk about her fight with breast cancer. Cancer can be a pretty intimidating word, never mind a topic for a whole book. But a book about dealing with cancer in a funny way? Impossible!! Not to Jill who’s book “When Good Boobs Turn Bad: A Mammoir” shows that having cancer doesn’t mean losing your sense of humor. Craig and Jill discuss dealing with friends and family who don’t know how to deal with you and your illness, how to find a good doctor, saying NO to a doctor, guilting your friends into laughing at your jokes and why hats can be a lifesaver. She also turns lemons into lemonade when she realized that a new boob job is just what the doctor ordered!
Full disclosure – I did read and then write a blurb for her book:
“An amusing handbook for many navigating the scary terrain of cancer, the author offers a blueprint to settle the fears of treatment and recovery. With a fun, sassy perspective, this book is a real gift for anyone starting their fight and hoping they don’t have to take everything so seriously!” — Craig Price, author of Half a Glass: The Realist’s Guide
