My So-Called Normal Life: How I Learned to Balance Love, Work, Family, Friends...and Cancer at 23
Twenty-three years old and fresh out of college, in love with her boyfriend Nick, and having just started a great new job as assistant editor at Glamour magazine, Erin Zammett was looking forward to a future of unlimited promise until she was confronted by the one experience that no person, young or old, is ever prepared to confront. A routine checkup by her doctor seemed to indicate that she was in perfect health, until she was called back just a day later to be told that a blood test revealed she had a type of cancer, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, the only known treatment for which was a bone marrow transplant; without treatment, she had roughly five years to live.
After the initial shock wore off, and with the support of her family and friends, her own inner strength, and a recently approved experimental drug, Erin Zammett immediately began the journey that would lead her to recovery. She began to document her experiences, to provide an outlet for the thoughts that came rushing to confront the brave new world she had entered, and the result, My So-Called Normal Life is a memoir of unparalleled candor and poignancy, encompassing much more than leukemia and the battle to overcome it. Above all, it s the story of a twenty-something living her dream life amid the unlimited excitement, adventure, and potential for growth of Manhattan, confronting the challenges of life and her new job battling cancer with unbounded courage and optimism.
Erin Zammett is a frequent guest speaker to numerous cancer organisations. She has also made numerous television appearances in the USA. She is an associate editor at US Glamour magazine. Her cancer is now in complete remission. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
