About Scarred But Smarter:
In a style reminiscent of a conversation with your best girlfriend, Natalie Holland gives readers a glimpse of what a cancer diagnosis looks like for a mom amidst a busy life with young kids and an often-deployed husband. She reveals that being faced with challenging and unchanging circumstances while being pressed from all sides actually gives us an opportunity for immense personal growth. "Scarred but Smarter: A Cancer Memoir" is full of honest insights, humor through dark moments, practical tips, and life lessons. Divided into two parts, the first half is a candid look at Natalie's experience with cancer. The second half explores wellness and covers everything from reducing toxic load to good nutrition and exercises. New to this second-edition book is an appendix with tips for chemo and mastectomy as well as an exercise protocol for rehabilitation after breast surgery. "Though I am presently cancer-free, and so very grateful to say that, I am reminded that life is neither the same nor as simple as it was before breast cancer. I find that though I am scarred, I am definitely smarter. Smarter about life, love, and health."
