If you’ve ever received tragic news or a shocking diagnosis, you know how challenging it can be to handle it. Whether it’s your health on the line or the loss of a loved one, bad news can be difficult—devastating, even—and almost always dramatically life-changing. But you don’t have to let it knock you down without getting back up with a smile.
When award-winning author Princess Diane von Brainisfried (aka Diane Young Uniman) heard three of the most terrifying words ever spoken in a doctor’s office — “you have cancer” — it set her on a journey of healing, self-discovery, and strengthening her commitment to seeing the positive in every experience.
In her new book, Bonjour, Breast Cancer – I’m Still Smiling! she shares her own experience with beating breast cancer, along with a wealth of insights and research-based positive psychology strategies to face breast cancer and all of the treatments and challenges that come along with it, and still maintain a positive outlook.
By mixing humor, encouragement, and practical advice, this book is an essential guide for anyone striving to beat the breast cancer blues. Cancer patients, loved ones, and caregivers will learn from and delight in the wisdom she shares from Socrates, Cherokee legends, and her own Jewish great-grandmother. It’s a must-read for anyone looking to move from fear and despair to optimism and positivity so they can reclaim their happiness mojo and smile again.
On a mission to inspire and empower anyone facing life’s most difficult challenges, Princess Diane doesn’t hold anything back. She talks about her diagnosis, chemo, baldness, double mastectomy, radiation, and even her 3-D nipple tattoos with refreshing honesty, humor, and encouragement.
Coming back from breast cancer or any life-altering experience isn’t easy — it’s okay to wallow for a moment, but happiness is always within reach.
Breast Cancer — I’m Still Smiling! offers a king’s ransom of practical guidance to discover happiness where you least expect it and overcome challenges that nobody wants to endure.
When author Princess Diane is not smashing champagne bottles over the bows of ships or blogging her brains out at her palace desk, she’s a motivational speaker and certified positive psychology life coach, the optimist expert for the Women’s Health Institute of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and was a facilitator at Miami’s World Happiness Summit.
When the Princess is not wearing her tiara, she is known as Diane Young Uniman, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of The University of Pennsylvania and criminal justice appeals attorney turned writer of screenplays and musicals. Her work has been featured at Lincoln Center’s Broadway’s Future series and was accepted into Fringe/NYC. She has won over 50 awards for her screenplays and musicals and an ASCAP award for writing.
