Guest Blog: Michelle Grey: Awareness and Early Detection

Awareness and Early Detection

What do those words make you think of?

Hello, and thank you so much for allowing me to stop by RB4U! My name is Michelle Grey and I typically write contemporary romantic mystery and suspense. I am a voracious reader and love all things romance, but that's not why I wanted to visit with you today.

If the words in the title made you think of cancer, you're not alone.

And I'm hoping to do my part to increase both awareness and early detection. Later this month, on January 28th, I'll be releasing an ebook called "Are You Listening? A Personal Journal of an Ovarian Cancer Survivor" that will take the reader through my experience from the initial "discovery" sonogram to my final clear pathology. My hope is that every woman will invest thirty minutes with this quick read to become more aware of the early signs and symptoms of this "silent" disease. In addition, all proceeds from this 99-cent ebook will be donated to the Vicki Welsh Ovarian Cancer Fund - a great organization doing wonderful things to provide education and research about OC. You're getting a sneak peek of the cover today, but we'll be posting more info as the release date approaches on Facebook and Twitter. You can find me here:


Again, thank you for letting me share this project with you! I'm looking forward to a wonderful and healthy 2014!

A very worthwhile project, Michelle. I lost my sister to breast cancer at a young age. Awareness is extremely important. Thanks for sharing.

Kudos to you for writing such an amazing book. Cancer is scary. Ovarian cancer, IMO, is probably the scariest. May you save many lives with your book.

Thank you, Michelle, for getting this information out. My mother died of ovarian cancer in 1998.

These reminders are so valuable. Thank you Michelle, and congratulations on winning your battle!

Sandy, I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my mom to cancer in 2007. :-( Hugs to you.

Thank you, Jill. And I agree. I'm really excited about helping women be more aware of the symptoms!

Thank you, Cara! I hope women will pass the word to others they care about. :)

It's such a wonderful thing you're doing, Michelle. I have been lucky to have not been touched by cancer in my life. Your book has made me appreciate that even more so and also served to make me more aware of the need to listen to my body. Well done!

Thank you, Emily. This project wouldn't have happened without you. :-)
