With a foreword by Karen Fasciano ’87, Director of the Young Adult Program and Senior Psychologist at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
“When she was 32 years old and newly diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer, Tara Shuman learned the significance of hope. With honesty, humor, and humility, Hope Is a Good Breakfast tells the story of one woman’s journey facing cancer as a young wife, mother, and working professional. It is not simply a book about cancer, but rather an insightful story of strength and struggle, fear and failure, loss and love. Hope Is a Good Breakfast inspires us to live better and love more. It reminds us that remarkable stories come from regular people, and that with hope, what we think is the end may actually be the beginning.” From the publisher.
Karen and Tara “met at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute when I became her patient after I was diagnosed in 2012,” Tara told Bowdoin Magazine. “Bowdoin’s name is also splashed all over the book since I love that place, met my husband there, and had wonderful things to share about it.”
