It’s time for a giveaway! For a chance to win a FREE print copy of Cancer Was Not a Gift & It Didn’t Make Me a Better Person:  A memoir about cancer as I know it, keep reading. I haven’t decided yet how many copies I’ll be giving away. Dear hubby just rolls his eyes when I say stuff like this, but… oh well. 

For a chance to win a FREE copy, all you need to do is comment below. Your comment will need to state that you wish to be entered in this giveaway, AND you will need to answer one of the following questions:

Why do you want to read my memoir?


If you’ve already read my memoir (yes, of course, you can still enter this giveaway), what was something you liked about it?

Pretty easy, right?

So why not enter today?

Just leave your comments below by 5 pm CT on Tuesday, February 23. If you comment on the Facebook thread about this giveaway as well (after I post it), your name will be entered twice. So why not do so?

Newsletter subscribers had an earlier opportunity to enter a separate giveaway as well.  Those winners have already been notified and have received their books. And yes, I’ll be doing another one at some point for subscribers.

Winners will be announced right here on this post soon after the deadline.

Hi Nancy,

I purchased your book and finally am reading it. Totally excellent. I didn't enter the giveaway because I already have mine, but this candid book will be so helpful to so many people.

Beth, Thank you for reading my memoir. As always, I appreciate your support very much.

I missed this - here via Kathi Kolb's note on you. But, congratulations on a wonderful title! How often I feel like I have to look behind me to admit that it did not change my outlook on life, that I'm no more enlightened and understanding of the importance of every moment, blah, blah, blah. (I'm hoping that the impending death of a friend from pancreatic cancer may give me what my own cancer did not, but I'm not counting on it.) Congratulations on the book (as well as the title) and I look forward to reading it.

Julie, Thank you for reading Kathi's wonderful review. I am so grateful for her friendship. I am sorry to hear about your friend. And yes, I'm still waiting for that "enlightenment". Glad you like my book's title. Let me know what you think of it if and when you read it. Thanks again for stopping by.

Hi Nancy,

I'd love to read your book. If I don't win, don't worry, it's in my Amazon cart. But I'd like to read it because I think we have similar opinions about pink washing and the breast cancer experience. I'd like to read what you have to say and learn more about your life and how you came to these conclusions.

Thank you!!!!

I would love to read your book. I have really enjoyed your Facebook posts. Your thoughts have helped me through my second journey through breast cancer. It has been a tremendous struggle and I am grateful to know I am not alone in some of my feelings. It has also helped me to not be so hard on myself when others are telling me how grateful and happy I should be. Thanks for being brave and sharing.

Nancy I would love to read your book. Please enter me in the drawing. I found your blog when looking for information regarding taste buds and chemo. My father was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer last fall and is presently undergoing chemotherapy. He is handling it very well considering this deadly disease. I am planning on reading your blogs as you not only discuss your own story but that of your mother. Thank you so much for sharing your words and your perspective. It is amazing how this work has connected, inspired and sustained so many people. You should know it truly matters. Peace.
