Whidbey Island Author "Gail Rognan" to Hold Book Signing for New Book

by Gail Rognan 3rd February 2016

 

As a healthy 58-year-old woman, a cancer diagnosis rocked author Gail Rognan’s world. She shares her story of her unconventional path to healing in her new book “I Lost Two Boobs and Gained Two Balls,” both a memoir and a practical, supportive resource for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer and is now available online at iuniverse.com.

 

Gail Rognan and Oak Harbor Senior Center at 51 SE Jerome St cordially invite you to attend a book signing for Gail's book, I Lost Two Boobs and Gained Two Balls. Rognan offers a raw, candid account of how she “grew a pair” when diagnosed with breast cancer and found her voice, realizing that in order to live she had to speak up and risk being judged and criticized. Through her story, Rognan shares how our mind, body and spirit intersect to help us heal ourselves; how alternative treatments can be combined with traditional health treatments; how to listen to ourselves and avoid illness; and how illness can teach us about who we really are.

 

Book signing and reading will be on Thursday, February 11 from 2-3 PM.

 

By facing her illness and possible death head-on, hopes her book offers knowledge that may make it easier for those who also have a difficult path to travel.

 

“When I was diagnosed with cancer, I searched and searched for a book like this to help guide me through everything I was feeling,” said Rognan. “I couldn’t find it. So, I wrote this book in hopes of helping others who are experiencing similar trials.”

 

Through her story, Rognan shares how our mind, body and spirit intersect to help us heal ourselves; how alternative treatments can be combined with traditional health treatments; how to listen to ourselves and avoid illness; and how illness can teach us about who we really are.

 

Realistic and inspiring, “I Lost Two Boobs and Gained Two Balls” offers a poignant story for those touched by cancer and any other life-changing challenge.
