The Cancer Warrior

a memoir of rebellion, survival, and freedom

Authored by Monica Y Mateo

Have you ever felt your world shatter from one day to the next?

For Monica, that moment would happen when she'd least expect it. She was twenty-three living on coffee and cigarettes when she woke up with a lump protruding from her neck.
Four years after her haunting battle with cancer, she travels to an Ashram. While trying to master yoga poses-Monica struggles to heal from her dark and tormenting past.
At the Ashram, a nightmare of a red-filled syringe piercing her hand sends her into panic. She realizes she must unravel layers of hidden pain and face her darkest truth-cancer. In her quest for healing, she discovers that survival has nothing to do with going into remission.

THE CANCER WARRIOR is a courageous, yet gut-wrenching memoir of a rebellious cancer survivor's journey from victim to warrior.
