Overview

At the height of COVID-19 pandemic, Ronnie was diagnosed with breast cancer while working in the Middle East. Ronnie had no other option but to drive herself to chemo treatments as the pandemic shut down the world. As a former Division I basketball player and now a Speech Pathologist, Ronnie gathered everything she learned on and off the court- sheer determination, life trials and victories, her medical knowledge, and her dynamics of faith. Ronnie recalled the lessons her parents and former coach, Coach Kay Yow, taught throughout this season in her life - they were a gift. Ronnie had a Tribe of friends who motivated and encouraged her along the way, as she knew this journey would be anything but typical. Collectively, Ronnie used every experience to write this outstanding inspirational book on how she faced her breast cancer challenge "alone" during a worldwide pandemic. Ronnie wants you to know that you are never alone in your journey - you always have someone by your side. This book is full of remarkable insight, analysis, and suggestions such as staying grateful, staying positive, staying mobile via exercise, eating healthy, and keeping track of of all your appointments when you are exhausted. This book illuminates the unknown, eases one's anxiety, and negates the many surprises and fears that cancer brings. An Atypical Journey is an inspirational book for patients and their families facing one of life's most challenging journey's - cancer.
