“I Fought Like A Girl, And I Won!” is my memoir book of what I encountered having breast cancer. My main goal is to share my journey with other women who have battled cancer, or to be support to women who are newly diagnosed. You can be control of breast cancer; don’t let it be in control of you! My story tells of my hope, faith, and courage. Being a single mom to three children is a challenge; but being a single mom to three children and kicking cancer’s butt takes determination!
“Thousands of women are being diagnosed every month and, if they are anything like me, they feel totally alone and are desperately searching for someone with a positive message to share,” explains Dorman. “I am now giving them that positive message. It is life-changing therapy in itself – and the bedrock of getting through this terrible disease is to stay positive, smile and know that you’ll ultimately be okay.”
Continuing, “My story is a cocktail of emotions that will have readers laughing, crying, changing their life’s perspective and hopefully uncovering the grit and determination they need to join me on the list of breast cancer’s survivors.”
Since its release, the book has garnered a string of positive reviews. Cynthia A. Lewis comments, “Fight fight fight. You are amazing. Thoughts and prayers will always be with you. You are a woman. You are truly blessed.”
Pamela adds, “Nicole’s book is inspiring, informative and heartwarming. Unbridled determination to win her battle and a positive mental attitude has allowed her to share her remarkable story with her readers. The photographs and her daughter’s beautiful illustrations bring the book to life. Her story will uplift and inspire you.”
