About Leona J. Howard

My Story

Welcome to what may be one of your first stops as you search for information about your diagnosis.  By now your head is swimming with a collage of thoughts and emotions that have no rhyme or reason.

When I was first diagnosed, I felt exactly the same way.  I am so glad you are here.  Each person’s journey is different but I found that there are many shared aspects of each journey.  I decided to tell my story and I wanted to expand beyond the physical issues and reach into the mental, emotional, spiritual and family issues.  Each will play an integral role in your healing process.

As with mine, your journey will be filled with twists and turns.  My goal is to help you navigate that journey in some small way.  I hope you have had or will have an opportunity to read my book and find some guidance to assist you as you navigate yours.  It is not so much about the particular cancer, chemotherapy or radiation treatment, and/or surgery, but more about navigating the process and dealing with the roller coaster ride that you are about to embark on.

If you have not had the opportunity to do so, you may purchase the book by clicking here.  Also check out my blog which I will update periodically.  I will touch on the more unique aspects of my journey as well as provide updates from the cancer field.  If you wish, you may also contact me.  I welcome your feedback, comments, and questions, or whatever you would like to share.

May God Speed,
