The author of "Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy" dares all women who have had a stumble in life to harness their fighting spirit and stand back up with courage and optimism.
One mastectomy, two C-sections, three pant's sizes, and lots of red lipstick later, Geralyn Lucas is dealing with the same issues as other women her age. Her miracle babies have grown into a typical tween with a fierce eye-roll for her mom's failings and a tornado of a little boy who won't play by his preschool's rules. Her storybook romance with her husband has spiraled into couples therapy and her perfect-if-demanding corporate job as a TV producer has abandoned her for L.A. When she looks in the mirror at her hard-won wrinkles, all she wants is . . . Botox.
Celebrating her sweet sixteen cancerversary she's thankful for her second chance and ready to be daring--but can she survive life's new ups and downs with the same courage she's always had?
With an infectiously hilarious voice and a true sense of empowerment, Geralyn harnesses her fighting spirit to live life loudly and lustily, and to grab on to all the moments that might never have happened. Knowing she can only pedal forward, she mines every day for boldness, joy, and gratitude, and eventually falls in love with life again. "Then Came Life "is not just for cancer survivors; it's for life survivors--a call to rediscover the resilience and optimism it takes to reinvent yourself at any age.
