KAHS graduate to speak about her book, surviving breast cancer
The surprise Gwen Rosha Anderson received on her 28th birthday – July 8, 2008 – was not anything she ever wanted.
It was on that day five years ago that Anderson got word that she had a lump on her breast that was not a cyst, and a biopsy was required.
The next day she heard the words “Gwen, it’s cancer.” She would learn soon that she was diagnosed with stage 1b infiltrating ductal carcinoma.
Now, five years later, Anderson has written a book entitled My Three Lumps, about that experience and the trauma she went through. She will speak about the book and that eventful period of her life at 10 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Kimball Public Library.
“Pamper Me” will be the theme of the Christian Women’s gathering 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, at Reichel’s Event Center in Annandale.
The Feature is Quilting by Mary and Diana. Joy Berg is our yodeling friend.
The speaker is Catherine Tutt of Delano with “Horse Sense 101 – Life Lessons From the Barn”.
To make reservations, please call Sheree before 8 p.m. at (320) 963-6625, or Dawn at (612) 723-3905; or e-mail lilred.
