“Kickin’ Cancer’s Butt, Again,” (how to fight cancer with faith: from a multi-platinum award winning songwriter who’s done it three times!)

In, “Kickin’ Cancer’s Butt, Again,” (how to fight cancer with faith: from a multi-platinum award winning songwriter who’s done it three times!) Donna Douglas Walchle shares the details of her journey in a real, raw and sometimes very humorous way! Each time she was diagnosed with cancer she just wanted to do whatever was necessary to get over it and back to her good life. She insists that she never wanted to wear the colored- ribbon affiliated with her type of cancer, never wanted to wear an “I’m a Survivor” T-shirt, or join a support group. And, she definitely didn’t want to write a book about it!

But, no one knows how it feels to hear those six life-changing words unless you’ve experienced it. “I’m so sorry, you have cancer.” And sometimes hearing what to expect hypothetically from a doctor, nurse or social worker isn’t enough. Sometimes, it’s better to hear what to expect from someone who’s gone through it. And she has. Three times. Cancer is not the focus of this book. Living life is. Learning to live in the moment, not missing even one millisecond and basking in the beautiful gift of every day!

That’s what “Kickin’ Cancer’s Butt, AGAIN!” is all about. It is her hope to make you laugh a little, cry a little and finish full of hope!

"Donna D does more than gently charm you with good writing. She causes you to consider that you have the power to be a change-maker. Make Lemonade is a book of fiction that could be the cure to all social injustice in the world. It is a book of reflection that causes the reader to come back into the reality that all humanity needs is someone to care. Could that someone be you?”

Synopsis of “There’s an Owl in the Closet”

Davey loves animals and brings home any that are hurt, lost or homeless. His family is very grateful that there are no elephants or buffalo roaming the neighborhood! But what if there were? What if they opened the bathroom door and there was a dolphin in the bathtub? Or went out the back door and there was a giraffe by the back fence or a hippo in the big pool?

(There’s much more!) That’s what “There’s an Owl in the Closet” is all about! What will Davey bring home next?
