Are You Listening?
A Personal Journal of an Ovarian Cancer Survivor
Michelle Grey
Review & Feature
Cancer snuck up on me when I least expected it. But I imagine everyone probably feels that way. When I got my diagnosis, I was relatively young and otherwise healthy. I was a busy mom, wife, employee and aspiring author. Priorities shifted, and so did my perspective. 

Throughout my experience, I sought to become educated and I learned many things – some tangible, some intangible, but all of which I’ll share with you in this quick story. My hope is to further educate and encourage every woman, even if cancer never touches you or anyone you love.

My Review:
This was definitely a very interesting novella about the author’s experience with ovarian cancer and is quite different from what I usually read. It’s told in memoir style, like you’re reading her journal as she goes from suspicion of something wrong going on with her body, to the dreadful diagnoses, to a very hopeful ending. It left me in awe of how strong she can be and thankful that she decided to put her experience in writing so that others may find the courage to listen to their body telling them something is wrong and not let the common answer or diagnoses of something else some well-meaning but wrong doctors can give to blanket the symptoms they feel. I can see this helping so many woman into earlier detection of ovarian cancer and hopefully, a better survival rate. 

An emotional journey that takes you into the terror, love and ultimate hope of one person who hopes to change the world, one early diagnoses at a time. A wonderful insightful read.

Michelle Grey has always been an avid lover of books. After surviving a run-in with ovarian cancer, Michelle decided that there would never be a better time to pursue her dream of becoming a romantic suspense author. Her debut novel, Dangerous Ally, launched in January 2013.

Michelle lives in the Midwest with her husband of twenty-five years and has four amazing and unique children. For her, any day that involves family, writing, or reading is a great day, indeed.
