Book Title: The Victoria's Secret Catalog Never Stops Coming and Other Lessons I Learned from Breast Cancer

Author: Jennie Nash

Book Description:

Midway through my tenure journey I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Cancer changes your perspective on many things and how you choose to move forward in life. It also teaches many lessons — most important, how to persevere despite how uncertain the future has suddenly become. While achieving promotion and tenure is accomplishment enough, it is also my validation of having been able to learn what it means to be a "young survivor".
