Multi-award-winning former journalist, Stacy Shelton had to face every woman's nightmare when she was diagnosed, not once but twice with breast cancer. To make matters worse, a new presence, which she dubbed "Crazy Woman," took up residence in her brain, wreaking havoc, and forcing her to face her own mortality.

By walking herself through her own death, and conquering additional obstacles that sometimes seemed too much to overcome, she discovered an enlightened sense of purpose, and a newfound way of living, free from fear.

Me, the Crazy Woman, and Breast Cancer is a hauntingly moving memoir that will leave you knowing all of life's lessons are to be cherished. More so, it provides a roadmap to solace for anyone overwhelmed with life-altering circumstances.

Ms. Shelton was named "Oklahoma's Best Author" by the Oklahoma Gazzette, the states largest and most influential Arts and Entertainment Publication, for this book.

This book is a story of pain and of healing love; it's about healing purpose with a few miracles and lots of lessons throughout. I found myself white-knuckling through parts of the book (and you will, too, if you've intimately known any kind of pain and the fear of more pain). This book isn't just about cancer...and it's definitely not just about survival, it's about being triumphant! It's a celebration of victory. While reading the book, I was reminded that there's always lessons to learn if we search for them and a mighty purpose in the journey if we seek it.

I loved this book. It's been a long time since I couldn't put a book down. Stacy's book is informative, inspirational and has a very humorous side to it. While reading it I couldn't believe so many things could happen to one person. It made me really apppreciate the life I lead. I recommend it to everyone, not just cancer victims.

This is one of those books as soon as you start reading it, you won't be able to put it down. The beautiful author takes you to her deepest & darkest moments w/her struggle of life w/cancer. And inspires you to be the best person you can be no matter what life throws your way. A true inspirational book for anyone associated w/cancer. With Gods help, she wants you to be a survivor and not take "Life for granted" because "Life is short."

Stacy's book is enjoyable, inspirational and a tear-jerker. Not only would I recommend it to families of breast cancer survivors, but to any woman. I don't know how one person can endure so much. It inspires you to live life to the fullest and forget about all the little things that are wrong in your life. Great book!

This is a truly beautiful story of a courageous woman and survival. Some parts are so gripping you cannot stop reading. It is appropriate for those who know someone that has battled cancer as well as anyone that has struggled with anything in their lives. It's a journey of pain, obstacles, and healing. It is not just a story about breast cancer, but of the pitfalls we encounter in life. I love this book!

I met Stacy earlier this year when I looked erased across my face - no hair, eyebrows or eyelashes because of chemo. She came up to me and asked if she could give me a hug and that she was a two time breast cancer survivor. It doesn't get much better for survivors than success stories and getting hugs. It was my great pleasure to meet Stacy and get to know her. She is one dedicated and compassionate woman. I have read many books by survivors. Stacy's book was different in that it was a very personal account written from the heart. This author has the power to enrich your life with her love, spirit, and strength. She stirred my heart and soul with her story. This book is inspirational and should be read by everyone -- survivors, their families and friends alike. It's meant for all of us and her account is an important education. Please don't miss this opportunity. It's at the top of must read books for all my survivor friends and those who care about them.

Stacy's book had a profound effect on me. I read it in about 6 hours. I laughed, I cried and I laughed again. The book opened a flood gate for me because my mother-in-law died of breast cancer in 1990 after being diagnosed in 1978. She lived in Iowa and we were in Oklahoma so we weren't close enough to be there for her. I now have, a more clear perspective of what she must have gone through with only her husband at her side. She did not live to see her beautiful granddaughters, Sarah and Christian. This book should be read. "WE ARE ALL IN THIS BATTLE TOGETHER." Read the book and pass it on.
