Publisher Description

A heartwarming memoir of a family that refused to give up

When twenty-two-year-old Susan Stachler was diagnosed with cancer, her mother, Laura, was struck by déjà vu. The same illness that took her sister’s life was threatening to take her daughter’s too. Heartbroken but steadfast, Laura pledged to help Susan through the worst of her treatments. When they discovered that Laura’s homemade ginger cookies soothed the side effects of Susan’s chemotherapy, the mother–daughter duo soon found themselves opening the business “Susansnaps” and sharing their gourmet gingersnaps with the world.

Told with admirable grace and infinite hope, The Cookie Cure is about more than baked goods and cancer―it’s about fighting for your life and for your dreams.

“Stachler’s first-person perspective tells the story of how she fought cancer and won and of how she and her mother persevered through a variety of struggles, both physical and emotional, to create a successful business. Letters written by Laura to her dead sister give another viewpoint…Throughout, the devotion between mother and daughter is palpable. The Stachlers’ unwavering dedication to their product is also apparent, which will convince readers that they deserve their success. A sweet story of a strong-willed mother-daughter combo team who stood up to cancer and created a thriving business in the process.”

— Kirkus Reviews 


  • “Susan and Laura Stachler’s story is as heartwarming as a plate of warm cookies. More than a cancer survival story, this is the beautiful tale of two tough cookies who built a successful business on grit, determination, and love. I was rooting for them both, and you will too.”

    — Teresa Rhyne, New York Times bestselling author
  • “This deeply heartfelt and moving memoir recounts how the Stachlers’ darkest days ended in the triumph of building a successful business, each woman with her truest friend and ally by her side…A testament to the bond between mothers and daughters and a reminder that there is always hope.”
