When Karla Antoinette Baptiste was first diagnosed, she began reading breast cancer memoirs but was always left wondering what happened next. What should I expect after treatment? What will my “new normal” be like? Her own story answers those questions and so much more. Written with humor and humility, Karla’s story is woven with themes of love, trust, and spiritual faith—and the importance of becoming a force in breast cancer advocacy. It offers valuable information and resources for breast health, and provides support, inspiration, and hope for those facing breast cancer. From her adventures in Paris to her roller-coaster relationship with her ex-husband, Karla’s memoir is more than radiation and chemotherapy. In Dig in Your Heels, she urges women to educate themselves and draw upon their inner strength—the best is yet to come!
