Description

"The fight against cancer isn't necessarily limited to eradicating it from your body; too often it continues with the very system that's supposed to heal us." -- Apryl Allen Apryl Allen was desperate to learn what her future would hold after a diagnosis of breast cancer. What she didn't anticipate was an underlying factor no one talked about . . . healthcare. Depicting the poignant complexities patients encounter, Apryl takes us deep into the realities of the human side of the disease: the nerve-wracking undertakings of her quest to find multiple health specialists through the aftermath of medical bills. A Tango with Cancer reminds us compassion is a vital element to the healing process. It also reveals how, in today's medical world, many health professionals have abandoned the practice of altruism.

Author Biography

APRYL ALLEN has written and recorded two award-winning albums, 'Morningstar' and 'Na Unu Nahai' (Shape Shifter). As a member of the Comanche Nation she is actively involved to preserve her tribe's dying language and stories handed down. Her current project, 'Shape Shifter', takes these narratives and weaves them into a fictional Native American trilogy based on historical fantasy. The Comanche Nation has acknowledged her efforts by proclamation on November 7, 2008 naming it "Apryl Allen Day." As a survivor of breast cancer and child abuse, Apryl views life as sacred-a gift we should all cherish. Her dream, as a survivor and member of a dying culture, is to be a voice that echoes throughout time. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
