Kris Carr

 

Companion journal to the September ’07 bestseller Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips

 

 

On the heels of the acclaimed Learning Channel documentary and bestselling survival guidebook Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips comes this companion journal. Kris Carr has been there, and her writing’s warm wit, accessible style, and hip sensibility automatically compel women to want to chat back. In pairing Kris’s smart, soulful, real advice with space for recording reader’s own experience, this full-color, portable companion title reaffirms that it is possible to live a real, fun, crazy, sexy life—with cancer. Ample space is provided for readers to record their own experiences on dealing with diagnosis, creating their own cancer posse, rediscovering their passions, exploring body issues, and more. The full-color, concealed spiral-bound format further invites readers to join the Cancer Cowgirls, a free-spirited bunch of powerful women who take charge as they gallop through life’s obstacle course. 

 

Kris Carr is an award-winning actress, photographer, and filmmaker, whose documentary and book made their debut in August 2007. 

 

Review:

"Carr spins off her original Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips in this uplifting guide. She begins with her own story — the discovery of inoperable Stage IV cancer in her liver and lungs — then covers four main topics: diagnosis, mind, body and spirit. Though she admits to having bad days, Carr follows her own advice to 'shake off passive malaise.' She gathers her support group or 'posse' (many of whom supply guest entries), determined not to let cancer 'poison' her entire world. Included are helpful sections on choosing the right doctor and learning to live in a self-nurturing manner. A vegan, the 30-something Carr also includes tips for fighting cancer 'with your fork.' The upbeat Carr makes it easy to forget she has cancer, yet she touches upon some grim statistics: by 2050 half of all women and one third of all men will have some form of the disease. Carr — who proves that living with cancer is truly an option — explains, 'I always try to talk about my cancer in a bold and confidant way.' While her hip, chatty style may particularly appeal to a youthful audience, her authenticity and sound advice will resonate with survivors of all stages and ages. (Sept.)"
