For those going through a health crisis and are looking for inspiration during such a difficult time, look no further. This book will make you laugh, cry and give you hope.
CRAZY SEXY CANCER TIPS gathers the lessons learned and advice offered from Carr’s own journey, as well as the experiences of her cancer posse.
Full-colour photos accompany personal stories and candid revelations in this scrapbook of advice, warnings, and resources for the cancer patient.
Chapters cover your changing social life, dating, sex, and appearance; essential health tips on how to boost your immune system; recipes; medical and holistic resources; and information on young survivor support groups.
The resulting book is a warm, yet informative tool for any woman newly diagnosed with the disease and for those who love them.
I don’t have cancer. I have a brain tumour. I know many people who have cancer now and in the past. I read this book out of interest rather than to help me on a cancer journey. I would recommend this to anyone interested in living life to the full each day.
The author, Kris Carr, is living with an incurable cancer diagnosis which she is managing. In my experience everyone dealing with cancer does so in their own way – rarely do two people share the same experience. I think this book could be helpful to someone newly diagnosed rather than someone who has been living with it for some time.
There is a good sense of humour throughout the book. Sometimes you need to laugh just to keep from crying all the time. The section on things not to say to someone with cancer was informative.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Actress and photographer Kris Carr thought she had a hangover, but a Jivamukti yoga class didn’t provide its usual kick-ass cure. A visit to her doctor confirmed her “liver looked like Swiss cheese,” covered with cancerous tumors. She entered trench warfare (wearing cowboy boots into the MRI machine, no less), vowing, “Cancer needed a makeover and I was just the gal to do it!” She began writing and filming her journey, documenting her interactions with friends, doctors, alternative “quacks,” blind dates, and other women with cancer—sadly a growing group. These include hip, young women such as illustrator-author Marisa Acocella Marchetto (Cancer Vixen), Glamour writer-editor Erin Zammett (My So-Called Normal Life), MTV personality Diem Brown (Real World/Road Rules Challenge), model Sharon Blynn (founder, Bald Is Beautiful), and music manager Jackie Farry, among others.
