The American Brain Tumor Association is the nation’s oldest nonprofit organization dedicated to brain tumor education, support and research. In 1973, the ABTA was founded by two mothers determined to find answers that, at the time, were not yet available. Since then, the ABTA has funded more than $32 million in brain tumor research and now reaches a national audience, providing educational and support resources.

The ABTA is a steadfast advocate on behalf of the brain tumor community in the United States, and we are here to help patients, caregivers, and their loved ones as they navigate the brain tumor journey.

Curly Girl Publications founder and inaugural author, Regina Maria Bernadette Cross, is a brain cancer survivor and grateful member of The American Brain Tumor Association.

A portion of the profits from all of her book sales will be donated to the ABTA in the hope that they can continue their lifesaving work.

The book is labeled as a teaching memoir, but it is so much more. Not only is it a touching tribute to family and loved ones who gathered around the author during these difficult days, but it is also a memoir of how to survive by calling on faith and a bit of humor to navigate the medical crises faced by Regina. I hope that this title will appeal not only to medical personnel but also to anyone facing a medical crisis for themselves or a loved one. I highly recommend it.

What a beautiful tribute to a beautiful soul! Having people contribute who knew him at different times and in different ways enabled everyone to learn something new about him.

It's wonderful to see a book on such a serious matter written with such love and humor. Her story can be an inspiration to others facing the same kind of uncertainly to not lose faith. That matters, because faith is all we really have.

Beautifully written, words flow like music!
Why would I want to read a book about brain tumors? It's not just for people with tumors! It's a sweet, funny, heart melting, terrifying, and crazy story of survival and love. Regina pours out her personal journey and it resonates with life in general. Loved it! No stumbling over awkward sentences and my mind drifting away. I especially love the "Part 2" section, it reminded me of the Tao Te Ching. Kenny said, "Bliss is your new normal and ordinary is good", but this book is far from ordinary. Well done!

What a joy to read this informative, yet personal, book. I could hardly put it down, as I traveled with her through her journey. Who would have thought a book on this subject would be so uplifting! I love her honesty and willingness to be vulnerable as she shares her story. I am impressed with how she found her way through this time with a combination of courage and humor, trepidation and faith, and how she encourages others on a similar path. I highly recommend this book to anyone facing a serious medical diagnosis.
