After her diagnosis of breast cancer at age 45, Joanna Chapman, a suburban mother of three, confides what it's really like to join the pink ribbon sorority. Sharing stories both heartbreaking and hilarious, she whispers advice while tackling rugged emotional terrain and unexpected detours. The author stumbles and bumbles through Cancerland on a journey rife with both tears and laughter, revealing why you should accept those foil-covered casseroles and when to give out "Stupid Passes" for well-meaning but clueless comments.
"Several years ago, my gravity-challenged, middle-aged boobs started attracting more attention than those belonging to a Hooters waitress. The guys checking me out, unfortunately, all wore white coats...and I ended up as a pledge of the pink ribbon sorority nobody wants to join...Yet somehow, I found humor in unlikely situations, such as when before one more surgery, the nurse warned me not to use hairspray. Forgoing the Aquanet? That is so not a problem with a peach fuzz coiffure. Bad hair day? No, more like a bad hair year."

"Joanna Chapman's wise and hilarious 'Divine Secrets of the Ta-Ta Sisterhood' just shot to the top of my list of essential reading for breast cancer patients and the people who love them.

The voice is fresh, witty and frank, the story compelling, and the pragmatic Secrets are spot-on." - Joni Rodgers, New York Times best-selling author of "Bald in the Land of Big Hair"

Her book, on the other hand, is a fantastic gift for anyone confronting this insidious disease: honest, poignant and deeply, darkly funny." - Marc Silver, author of Breast Cancer Husband" and co-author of "My Parent Has Cancer and It Really Sucks"

And for those of us who aren't, 'Divine Secrets of the Ta-Ta Sisterhood' is a unique memoir that reads like a novel...the story of a spunky, flawed, hilarious 45-year-old woman trying to find the normal in a life that is anything but." - Barbara Claypole White, author of "The Unfinished Garden"
