SISTERHOOD OF THE WOUNDED BREAST
by Mary L. Maas
Mary L. Maas has a new book, SISTERHOOD OF THE WOUNDED BREAST, available on Amazon.com in print and as an eBook. Her book is a collection of women’s journeys through breast cancer. “Each chapter was written, or given to me to write, by individuals whose essay and experience is as unique as they themselves are.”
This book was written to give hope and encouragement to those who have been diagnosed, or are receiving treatments, or will be dignosed in the future. It seems that every family has someone who is struggling with cancer, or knows someone who is, or has faced a form of this disease.

Connie Spittler’s essay entitled “Tree of Life” will appear in the anthology Nature’s Gifts, scheduled for an Earth Day release by Vanilla Heart Publishing. Her essay follows the season of the loquat tree in her patio, woven together with the story of her breast cancer experience. In addition, Connie’s essay “Pink Moment” about the Catalina Mountains was chosen for the anthology This I Believe: On Love. Essays for this book were selected from the This I Believe NPR radio show archive. Connie’s mountain essay also appeared in a special Christmas Eve section of the Arizona Daily Star.
The This I Believe anthology will be released in fall of 2010.
