When it comes to dating, Carrie Bradshaw has nothing on Cathy Bueti .

At 25, just a few weeks before her second wedding anniversary, Cathy’s high school sweetheart died in a tragic car accident. She wasn’t sure how she would go on living.  At the time, she was certain it was her last chance at love.

A few years later, just as Cathy took her first tentative steps into New York City’s dating world, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. For most, a cancer diagnosis would put dating on the back burner. But Cathy refused to waste a second of her life. She updated her profile and redoubled her efforts to find love while she still had her hair.

While juggling doctor’s appointments, surgery, chemotherapy, and her job, she remained in hot pursuit of true love. If she found it once, she knew she could find it again. Against the comical backdrop of one Mr. Wrong after another, Cathy was forced to come to terms with what was really keeping her from finding love.

Just a week after her last chemotherapy treatment, Cathy met someone who  would change everything. A survivor in every sense, Cathy’s honest and heartwarming journey to heal her body—and her heart—will inspire you to live every day to the fullest.
