For two Boulder County authors, breast cancer made an indelible mark on each of their lives. Now, Jennifer Lynch and Cristina Trapani-Scott are each set to release books that explore their individual experiences as caregiver and survivor. They will be launching their books at Lyons Regional Library on Wednesday, Feb. 28, at 6:30 p.m.
FUCK CANCER: A Tale of Love Pouring in from Every Angle, Lynch’s debut book of nonfiction, published by Spoke + Heart Press, explores the depths of female friendship amidst the hellish ride of breast cancer. In her book Lynch chronicles her personal journey returning home to be by her oldest friend’s side as she battled breast cancer.
