Metastatic Madness is a collection of poems and recollections of the author’s
experience with a fi rst time cancer diagnosis. The book describes the author’s
fi ve phases of coping with this diagnosis, from initial shock to adjusting and
becoming a strong advocate for herself and others.
Soon after discovering a thickening in her left breast, the author learned
she was at Stage 4 breast cancer. Despite previous negative screening and
test results, she now has an incurable form of the disease. Following several
months of chemotherapy and surgery, she went into remission of her illness.
Since then, she has developed the strength and will to face an illness that has
an average life span of three to fi ve years. The author’s intent is to share her
experience with others who may be struggling with a cancer diagnosis, and
hopefully, give them strategies to improve the quality of their lives.
