Roxanne Brown’s new book, “Chemo: Secrets to Thriving,” is a blueprint for living life to the fullest while going through chemotherapy. Having learned for herself that life doesn’t stop during treatment, Roxanne Brown shares secrets on how to manage communication, energy, career, kids, memory, sex, depression, and yes, side effects, throughout the chemotherapy journey. Few people know these simple, inexpensive secrets – nor are they compiled anywhere else in one source.

This inspiring, easy to read book will be an invaluable resource for anyone who undergoes chemotherapy. A small, easily accessible book, it’s just the right size to put in a tote bag and take everywhere.

No longer must people put their lives on hold during chemotherapy treatment. On the contrary, it is possible to thrive during treatment.

Chemotherapy for cancer is perhaps the most feared treatment in all of medicine. However, much of that fear is based on older methods and preparations of chemo drugs. The good news is: major advances in both therapies and supportive care have greatly minimized the side effects of cancer treatment.

“Chemo: Secrets to Thriving” contains wonderful advice on how to achieve a better experience. This book is a friend, companion, and guide, helping people manage possible side effects and enjoy life while undergoing chemotherapy.

Author Roxanne Brown was diagnosed with cancer just before her birthday. The doctors and nurses were swift to explain options and courses of treatment: surgery, chemo radiation, and tamoxifen. Information on managing side effects was scattered and confusing. After months of research combined with personal experience, Roxanne shares this vital information in “Chemo: Secrets to Thriving,” created with the collaboration of Dr. John Link and Barbara Mastej.

Roxanne Brown has a B.S. in business and has worked in sales, marketing, and management in the international home video field and advertising space sales. Later in life she returned to school and earned her M.S. in counseling, with an emphasis in career counseling. She’s traveled extensively and has lived in the Midwest, on the East Coast, the West Coast, and in Europe. She now combines her education, experiences and international contacts in her private practice and her contract work as a career counselor.

Roxanne is currently devoting her energy to promoting the positive benefits of “Chemo: Secrets to Thriving” and is available to do presentations and book signings. She welcomes your comments and requests regarding the book and can be reached at
