About the author:
Diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, Kathy Lariviere chronicles her journey through breast cancer with humor and candor that will have you laughing out loud as you read about her determination to survive cancer.
Kathy started writing in high school and hoped to become a journalist, until she discovered that sticking to the facts was boring. She also majored in accounting for only one semester for the same reason. After retiring from the phone company at the age of twenty-six, Kathy spent the majority of her life as a compulsive volunteer helping nonprofit organizations with membership and financial campaigns. She opened a website design and promotion business using the skills she developed while volunteering. But she always returned to writing.
Though she considers herself a Texan at heart, she now lives in Iowa with her husband, Gene, and walking companion, Luci Dog. Her three grown children are "off the family payroll" and successful in their communities. If she's not working on her latest blog, you can find her reading, creating websites, traveling, or laughing with her friends.
Laugh With Kathy
Finding Humor in the Journey through Breast Cancer.
Being diagnosed with cancer can be frightening, but it also gives you license to get away with a lot of things you wouldn't do otherwise. Laugh With Kathy takes you on a journey through breast cancer and finding humor in the diagnosis, treatment and survival of the disease through one patient's experience. Alternately laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving, Kathy gives you glimpses of what it takes to beat breast cancer. Read along as she blows up pumpkins, throws eggs, and uses her bald head to shame bad drivers. Laugh with her as she finds interesting ways to thumb her nose at some of cancer's indignities and uses her unique observations to humorously challenge every twist and turn on this unpredictable journey with breast cancer.
Kathy began publishing stories about her journey through breast cancer in her blog www.laughwithkathy.com in October of 2012. She now has over 5200 blog followers comprised of patients, caregivers, friends, and medical professionals.
