Publisher Comments:

An advice-from-the-trenches cancer survival guidebook for young women with cancer.

Actress and photographer Kris Carr thought she had a hangover, but a Jivamukti yoga class didn't provide its usual kick-ass cure. A visit to her doctor confirmed her "liver looked like Swiss cheese," covered with cancerous tumors. She entered trench warfare (wearing cowboy boots into the MRI machine, no less), vowing, "Cancer needed a makeover and I was just the gal to do it!" She began writing and filming her journey, documenting her interactions with friends, doctors, alternative "quacks," blind dates, and other women with cancer — sadly a growing group. These include hip, young women such as illustrator-author Marisa Acocella Marchetto (Cancer Vixen), Glamour writer-editor Erin Zammett (My So-Called Normal Life), MTV personality Diem Brown ("Real World/Road Rules Challenge"), model Sharon Blynn (founder, Bald Is Beautiful), and music manager Jackie Farry, among others. In August 2007, The Learning Channel will broadcast Carr's unforgettable documentary, Crazy Sexy Cancer.

Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips gathers the lessons learned and advice offered from Carr's own journey, as well as the experiences of her cancer posse. Full-color photos accompany personal stories and candid revelations in this scrapbook of advice, warnings, and resources for the cancer patient. Chapters cover your changing social life, dating, sex, and appearance; essential health tips on how to boost your immune system; recipes; medical and holistic resources; and information on young survivor support groups. The resulting book is a warm, yet informative tool for any woman newly diagnosed with the disease and for those who love them.

Review:

"Kris is a ray of light that is needed to raise awareness of what it means to give back. What more can one wish for? She is a true leader of courage and inspiration." Donna Karan

Review:

"Kris Carr has done something extraordinary with this book: She has put cancer in its place. She has triumphed, and paved a path by which others can triumph too. She deserves our most heartfelt....Bravo." Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love and Everyday Grace

Review:

Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Love, Medicine and Miracles and Help Me To Heal

When I was first diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphomma a girl with a rare form of cancer became my friend and gave me this book as a gift. I read over half the book while in the hospital. When things started to get tough I would absorb its pages. It cheered me up and helped me to realize that I shouldn't wallow in my sorrows but I should stand up to cancer! I love this book for everything that it taught me. I would recommend this for any cancer patient!!!!!!!!
