The C Card and Me, is the story of how one woman took a daunting diagnosis and turned it into an inspiring tale of triumph over stage IV colon cancer. Drawing from her experiences battling this “punk-ass” disease, Ali Gilmore has created a veritable cancer survival guide for those newly diagnosed and their loved ones. Written in a tone that reflects her voice and irreverent humor, and designed to be read in a day (under 70 pages), Ali shares her insights and anecdotes with an unvarnished truth and refreshing wit, to shed some light on a rather dark subject and smooth the road ahead for others.

- You are facing cancer
