Fran’s first cancer was in l984. Since diagnosed again in l998, she had 12 surgeries, earned signature status in Oil Painters of America, produced solo art exhibits, and painted prestigious portraits--while on continuous chemo. (Whew!) Frequent requests for advice led her to write, I’d Rather Do Chemo Than Clean Out the Garage: Choosing Laughter Over Tears. “We don’t need tears right now, we need backbone and laughter!” Fran is outrageously witty, slightly wicked, and packed with trench warfare wisdom. She gives serious tools for handling a life crisis, and a powerful message about laughter and passion.
