Ashes to Beauty

Price per Unit (piece): Ksh 500.00

The diagnosis of breast cancer is to many women synonymous to a death sentence.  There is no denying that breast cancer comes accompanied by terror, trauma and horrific stigmas that sap strength out of the patients.  In reality though, many of those who give up in life’s battle with breast cancer do so due to lack of information, appropriate support systems, family care and financial fatigue.  Ashes to Beauty is the story of how one woman went through the battle with breast cancer successfully.  It is a collection of journalized thoughts that capture moment-by-moment accounts of her journey.  It is a triumphant depiction of how family and friends can influence a positive outcome of breast cancer treatment.

Doris Mayoli is a voice of inspiration in an age where success stories in the fight for breast cancer are much needed.  She is a mother, a music minister and a professional.  Contact: info@twatrust.org.
