Luci shares openly with you her initial discovery that something was amiss; her perseverance in trying to figure out what was wrong with her after doctors brushed her and her symptoms off; her mental and physical ups and downs; and her triumphant win over this stealth opponent as she chased the rainbows that brought her success and recovery.
Chasing Rainbows is Luci’s inspiring story that covers the conventional, alternative and spiritual therapies that were paramount in her recovery. “If there is one thing I hope every reader takes away from my experience, it is to be your own advocate. Do not just accept what a physician tells you; listen to your body. Make sure you ask questions and if something doesn’t feel right, be sure to share your concerns with your physician or get a second opinion.”
Luci Berardi is a survivor, author and speaker. She is very involved with The Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA) helping to raise awareness and provide hope to fellow fighters and survivors. Copies of the book are available at The Tattered Cover Bookstores, The Boulder Bookstore, and online at Amazon.com.
