I am the founder and creator of There Is Life After Breast Cancer. I live on the beautiful Central Coast of California with my awesome husband, Tim Townley, and our crew of furmonsters. In addition to being a tireless breast cancer advocate and speaker, I also own Comet Realty and am a co-founder of BreastCancerReconstructionChoices.com. I like to laugh, read, decorate, write, cook, travel, and drive my 1990 Mustang 5.0 convertible (pictured on the front of our There Is Life After Breast Cancer book) or my 1965 Comet station wagon. I pour my heart and soul into everything I do and live by exceptions, not rules! I also throw terrific parties.
I am the illustrator for There Is Life After Breast Cancer. I don’t think breast cancer is the slightest bit funny, however, I discovered drawing cartoons about breast cancer was a good way to process the emotions of my experiences. It was also my pleasure to illustrate the many wonderful contributors’ stories for our book series. Besides being a breast cancer survivor and a retired general dentist, I am married and have three children. I am a co-founder of BreastCancerReconstructionChoices.com and have served on several Congressionally Directed Medical Review Panels as a consumer advocate. I am an Amazon warrior and have a cat who hunts wigs.
