Using Humor to Get Through Life's Challenges
Jill Foer Hirsch is a breast cancer survivor, writer, and humorist. While battling breast cancer in 2010, she documented her experience in an honest, wry, and funny online journal. Jill heard from breast cancer survivors, cancer patients, and those whose lives had been touched by cancer that they found her unique sense of humor and positive outlook inspirational. Hoping to encourage and support a wider audience, Jill adapted the journal to become When Good Boobs Turn Bad: A Mammoir.
Jill is the first to admit that the filter between her brain and her mouth is occasionally leaky, and if eye- rolling were an Olympic sport, she would bring home the gold. She resides with her husband, Dan, and their four spoiled cats. Her favorite things include her new boobs, long walks on the beach, piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain.
