    Our Book…The Cookie Cure: Mother~Daughter Memoir


Chapter One

My Name Is Susan

Isn’t it funny that from the time we’re born, we each respond to a name, our very own name? When you think about it, a name is just some letters and sounds put together, but it become our identity-who we are. It’s the first thing people learn about us (“Hi! My name is…”), and it’s stuck with us forever.

Told with heartfelt honesty & charming wit, The Cookie Cure is about learning to carry on when things get tough and letting life take you places you never imagined.

Life for college senior Susan Stachler takes a startling turn when she’s diagnosed with the same disease her aunt Susan died from at twenty-eight. From the moment Susan’s mom said, “Sweetie, you have cancer”, this mother-daughter duo has been on the most unlikely journey from cancer treatment to a cookie business out of their garage. A hopeful and entertaining story.

Written in Susan’s voice with letters uniquely woven in from Laura to her late sister, Sue.
