Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy

Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy

A young woman diagnosed with breast cancer at the early age of 27, Geralyn Lucas’s life was flipped upside down. She was a recent graduate of Columbia Journalism School and was immersed in beauty-obsessed culture. At 27 years old, Geralyn never imagined she would lose her breasts, her hair, and her entire self image while fighting for her life. This book is full of humor, self acceptance, and gusto that will help every breast cancer sufferer and survivor take another look in the mirror and smile at what they see.

Reviewers of the book have talked about how Geralyn was able to create so much humor out of such an unhumorous topic. In the book, Geralyn was relatable and able to target a younger population of breast cancer sufferers that are often overlooked.
