Katy Franco is a Latina stand-up comic, actress, and breast cancer survivor. Ken Phillips is a lawyer who represents dog bite victims throughout the USA, and is married to Katy Franco.Review:
A book that bears the name of its heroine and screams move over Cinderella! in dual languages. Literally. Chemorella is written in English and Spanish simultaneously by Katy Franco and her husband Ken Phillips as a battle cry in the fight against cancer.... And it's delightful, witty and funny, from start to happy ending, in fairy tale style, Prince Charming and all. --Caribbean Business Journal
Chemorella should be in the library of every person who has been touched by cancer! ... The highest recommendation ... I have made it available for our ten grandchildren. --Steve Wilson, Psychologist; Founder, World Laughter Tour, Inc
In their book, Chemorella, Ken Phillips and Katy Franco make quite clear that life, laughter and love are more important to them than giving up as they stare down the dreaded C word CANCER. Not that there s no fear. Of course there is. But by turning their story into a modern-day fairy tale accessible to young or old, healthy or ill, they have courageously created a soulful gift of immeasurable worth. Gently written, delightfully illustrated and quick to read, the bilingual English/Spanish Chemorella is a welcome tool for helping cancer patients and their families navigate the tough world of life-threatening illness. --Margot Desannoy, Licensed Marriage, Family and Child Therapist, and Award-Winning Children s Book Author
