ABOUT THE BOOK: How Connie Got Her Rack Back: A Breast Cancer Memoir by Constance Bramer

Let’s face it, when a white coat touting doctor and her posse deliver a breast cancer diagnosis, your life has a way of turning upside down and even a little sideways. And when you’re a 39-year-old single working mom of two young kids, the ensuing roller coaster ride will either lead you to a straight jacket or a back brace. Connie Bramer provides laugh out loud humor to her adventure with breast cancer, along with poignant moments of self-discovery as she blogs her way to good health. Follow along with her adventure and bear witness to her crazy antics and entertaining perspective, the messages of love and friendship she received as she blogged, and the unwavering support of her friends and family that helped to get her through
