On Halloween, she gets her own wake up call when she has a horrible car accident and ends up back in the ER dressed as Goldilocks. While recovering at her parents' house, she finds an old box of presents from Nana. It has her huge old teddy bear, a charm bracelet, her blue haired Flatsy doll, and a little black patent leather purse in it. She also finds a letter from Nana written just before she died and a caricature of herself as "Nana's Girl". This reminds Sam of who she really is. Using that as her motivation, she creates a To Do List for her life.
Nana's Girl is for all who have lost someone they loved dearly, especially those who have lost someone to breast cancer. Nana never got any treatment for her breast cancer. I can only guess how she must have suffered. She never told anyone. I am sure she didn't want anyone to worry. And I am sure she didn't want to go to the hospital. She always said she hated them. She thought people died there. I don't know if treatment would have helped Nana then. That was a different time. I do know that it does help many now. It is my hope to pevent even one more person from suffering.
Although Nana's Girl stems from my Nana, the story, characters and places are fictional. It was too personal to tell otherwise, and I would never have finished with any dry pages.
All profits from sale of Nana's Girl will be donated to The Breast Cancer Foundation at www.bcrfcure.org in loving memory of Katherine Mahan.
