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.
This book is for you if:
- You are afraid of cancer
- You are facing cancer
- Someone you know is facing cancer
- You wonder how you would deal if you had to face it one day.

Not only is Ali my one time boss, but one of my ALL TIME favorite people in the world. I can’t wait to get this book as my mom was diagnosed last year with stage IV cancer. I’m so glad that Ali has beat this disease, and SO proud she has written about the experience! She is truly an amazing and wonderful person!
Love to you, my dear friend!
