 A Note from pearls and TinkNCognito

 Over 20 years ago, I watched my Mother battle cancer.   Tink lost her Mother to cancer.  The positive lining to this dark cloud is that treatment and early detection of cancer has improved the chances of survival for women, men, and children.  Cancer is no longer the automatic death sentence it once was. My Sister-in-law has had an extra decade to watch her daughter grow into a beautiful young lady. And Tink's Sister is continuing her battle.  This project is truly a labor of love for us.  We are grateful to all the researchers and fundraisers that have worked to make this come about. 
 
Literature has also noticed the survivors.  The role of cancer was once to provide the pain and angst in the story.  Now cancer is the jumping board to a new lease on life.  Authors have delved into the psyches and fears of survivors and helped them to reach for their stars.  The cancer heroine is now a source of inspiration. 
 
Many of our auction authors have heroines who are cancer survivors.  In Sable Hunter's Cowboy Heat, Libby has spent most of her young life in hospitals.   Now that she is in remission, she plans on LIVING!  Skye Michael's Anne's Courage follows the journey of a breast cancer survivor as she deals with her body image issues.  And this year's Literary Ambassador Kallypso Masters shared her journey in blogs with her fans.  The Warrior Goddesses spirit is alive and well in these heroines.  
 
So I sought out additional novels that featured cancer survivors to list here for you. I must send a shout out to the bloggers at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books who first compiled these titles in 2011. I simply cleaned it up and added a few titles.  Please feel free to add to the list in the comments below:

Inspirational Warrior Goddesses Reading List 2014


 
Twenty-six years ago, I watched my mother battle cancer.   Now, I watch as my friends and cousins battle.  Tink and CherryMary have similar stories.  The positive lining to this dark cloud is that treatment and early detection of cancer has improved the chances of survival for women, men, and children.  Cancer is no longer the automatic death sentence it once was.  We are grateful to all the researches and fundraisers that have worked to make this come about.

2 Days left in WarriorGoddesses Charity Auction!

 
With only 2 days left on the auction,
we bring you the final 2 author donations!

We hope you've enjoyed learning a little about each of the generous authors who donated to help those who have fought against cancer as these Warrior Goddesses reclaim their lives.  The struggle doesn't end with the last chemo treatment.  Rebuilding a life put on hold is difficult (especially while drowning in medical bills).  We honor their fight for life by supporting their forward movement in life. 
The WarriorGoddesses Charity Auction 
with 40 baskets and over 50 authors!!!
May 4-May 11.
Money to benefit cancer survivors through the Pink Door Nonprofit Organization.
 
eBay Seller name is warriorgoddesses
 

Check out donations on the Forum. 

Thank you to the following authors for their donations!

Skye Michaels      Sophie Jordan
 
Skye Michaels writes her stories by filling them with love.  From her lovely local Florida setting to her beloved horses, realistic details from her own life are added.  In Anne's Courage, Skye included another realistic element. 
 
Like many cancer patients, Anne suffers from body image issues.  As a Warrior Goddess, her body has been a battlefield.  Not very sexy for someone who works as a manager of sex club.  Facing these issues is part of reclaiming your life.  And Bad boy businessman Jamison Devereau is out to help her do just that.
 
Skye is donating 3 ARC ecopies of Anne's Courage to the auction.
 
 
Sophie Jordan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Avon historical romances.  She also writes paranormal romance.  Sophie has now penned a contemporary romance, the Ivy Chronicle series, a sizzling New Adult romance series—where three Ivy League suite-mates test their boundaries as they seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go. [I just love books where women seek out and claim their Inner Goddess!]
 
Sophie is donating the first two books in the Ivy Chronicle series: signed paperbacks of Foreplay and Tease (ARC).
