My mom, Laura, and I are excited to share our story...
Told with heartfelt honesty and charming wit, The Cookie Cure is about learning to carry on when things get tough and letting life take you places you never imagined...
As a college senior, Susan Stachler's life took an unexpected turn when she was diagnosed with the same disease that her aunt Susan died from at age twenty-eight. From the moment Susan's mom, Laura said, "Sweetie, you have Hodgkin's", they have been on the most unlikely journey from cancer treatment to starting a business out of their garage. Their story is proof that anything is possible, and in the end, you may find you are a bit stronger than you think.
The Cookie Cure is written in Susan's voice with letters uniquely woven in from Laura to her late sister, Sue. Laura and Susan's wish is that you find their story both entertaining and hope filled, and it inspires you to find your own ginger lining!
