The author of Why
I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy dares all women who have had a stumble in
life to harness their fighting spirit and stand back up with courage and
One mastectomy, two C-sections, three pants sizes, and lots
of red lipstick later, Geralyn Lucas is dealing with the same issues as other
women her age. Her miracle babies have grown into a typical tween with a fierce
eye-roll for her mom’s failings and a tornado of a little boy who won’t play by
his preschool’s rules. Her storybook romance with her husband has spiraled into
couples therapy and her perfect-if-demanding corporate job as a TV producer has
abandoned her for LA. When she looks in the mirror at her hard-won wrinkles,
all she wants is … Botox.
Celebrating her sweet sixteen cancerversary she’s thankful
for her second chance and ready to be daring—but can she survive life’s new ups
and downs with the same courage she’s always had?
With an infectiously hilarious voice and a true sense of
empowerment, Geralyn harnesses her fighting spirit to live life loudly and
lustily, and to grab on to all the moments that might never have happened.
Knowing she can only pedal forward, she mines every day for boldness, joy, and
gratitude, and eventually falls in love with life again. Then Came Life is not just for cancer survivors; it’s for life
survivors—a call to rediscover the resilience and optimism it takes to reinvent
yourself at any age. Download and start listening now!
