Feisty Righty received an Evergreen Gold Medal (presented by the 2023 Living Now Book Awards) for its contribution toward positive global change. This award commemorates truly world-changing books.

This powerful and award-winning memoir is full of inspiration, a wake-up call for anyone looking to transform their life in a positive way. A breast cancer survivor herself, author Jennifer D. James is a mentor trained in offering support to those who have been diagnosed with cancer. The pages reflect the same understanding, honest answers, hope, and valuable insight that she shares during the many heartfelt conversations.

Successful in her career and happily married, Jennifer's world was upended at age 41 when she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. During her struggle against the disease, she realized that she had to let go of the life she was trying to desperately hang onto and embrace every aspect of the journey. This book is based on her seven handwritten journals, completed over 247 days, as she navigated through chemo, surgery, radiation, and the physical, emotional, and mental struggles brought on by the life-threatening disease.

With honesty, a heightened awareness, and self-reflection, Jennifer shares her hard-earned wisdom of becoming a survivor, the ability to adapt to unforeseen situations, how to proactively self-heal, the importance of love, the art of living, and the gifts and lessons surprisingly revealed along the way, as she shines a light on the stigmas surrounding women and cancer. An empowering read, not only for individuals diagnosed with cancer, caregivers, and medical teams but for anyone in search of something missing in their lives. It's a bold reminder as to why we must fight for the life we are born to live, with or without a diagnosis, and that with every breath, there's an opportunity to live fearlessly.
