Abigail Sharpe (abigailsharpe) | 2010 comments Hello, everyone who loves their Happily Ever Afters! I'm planning on doing a blog post for the USA Today Happily Ever After blog for Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I need input from romance readers and writers.

I'm looking for folks whose lives have been touched by breast cancer - whether you, a family member, a friend - and how romance novels helped you get through it at all or how it affected things afterward. For example, I included a character in a story who is done with her treatment, just so other characters could comment, like everyone did with me, on how fast her hair was growing.

Please let me know if you have a story to tell, either by commenting here or sending me a message. Much appreciated!

Abigail Sharpe (abigailsharpe) | 2010 comments Thank YOU. It might be a good topic but no one's spoken up here. I do have other sources, though, so all is not lost!

Actually, I'm glad no one has spoken up. Maybe it means they don't have a story to tell. :)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I know there are stories but as I said, I, thankfully, don't have one. Glad you got other sources.
