Resurrection Lily was published three years ago today. It is a fantastic feeling to know that people are still discovering it, and it's resonating. Knowing there is a trickle-down effect and people recommend it to their friends brings me a lot of personal satisfaction. Positive feedback continues to fuel my BRCA/hereditary cancer advocacy efforts. Gratitude to all of you who helped make it happen. ~ Amy

I recently spoke with Chelsea London Lloyd on her DYING OF LAUGHTER podcast. Chelsea's podcast features interviews with millennial comedians and funny-at-heart humans with a deceased parent or sibling. About Chelsea London Lloyd: Chelsea grew up with two sick parents; her dad died of ALS after a 15 year journey + her mom currently combats stage 4 metastatic breast cancer for the second time. Bonus episodes include interviews with grief counselors, funeral directors, cancer survivors, previvors, therapists, life coaches, oncologists + genetic counselors to name a few.
