About this title

Synopsis:

CHEMORELLA (subtitled QUIMIORELA) is a Cinderella story about beating cancer and seeing your dreams come true. The heroine, Chemorella, is a breast cancer patient who overcomes all obstacles by following her heart, accepting the love of people around her, and doing everything her doctor tells her to do. As she overcomes her disease and finds her prince, the story takes her from the rags of illness to the riches of health and love. She's pretty, witty and bald. CHEMORELLA is based on the real-life experiences of Katy Franco, a breast cancer survivor, who co-wrote it with her husband, Ken Phillips. The challenges that a cancer patient faces - depression, chemotherapy, surgery, the side-effects of treatment, and baldness - are presented in the positive context of a journey back to health. The story's happy ending says that everything is going to be okay. For that reason, it will provide emotional support for the cancer patient and her family, and anyone who is touched with cancer. CHEMORELLA is a fully illustrated, 60-page book, in English and Spanish (side by side). It is written with an edgy sense of humor for adults and teens, but kids absolutely love it because it is based on the Cinderella story, is fully illustrated, and tells an uplifting tale of love and acceptance. For that reason, this is truly a book for the entire family.

About the Author:

Authors Ken Phillips and Katy Franco went through Katy's breast cancer together, and then got married and wrote this book. Katy is a Puerto Rican actress, celebrity, and screamingly funny stand-up comic. Performing in English and Spanish, she has entertained in the United States, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Argentina. Her acting credits include dramatic and comedic roles in the theater, soap-operas, films and mini-series (with an award for Best Supporting Actress). She has hosted a children's television series and HBO Latino in Hollywood, and has been an entertainment reporter at Telemundo in Los Angeles. As a comic, she performs throughout Puerto Rico and the USA, and in Hollywood's most famous nightclubs (including the Laugh Factory on Sunset Strip, the Improv on Melrose and the Ice House in Pasadena). In 2006 Katy stepped into a very different spotlight when she announced that she was a breast cancer survivor. Appearing on stage and in countless news programs, magazine articles and newspaper stories, she has devoted herself to educating Latinas about early detection. Her experiences first became a one-woman show called The Breast Years of My Life (Sacando Pecho), about overcoming the disease, and then took the form of this book, CHEMORELLA. Ken Phillips is an attorney who is widely recognized as the USA's leading authority on dog bite law. A frequent guest on CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, MS-NBC, Fox News Channel, and Court TV, he has been called the dog bite king (Today Show and Lawyers Weekly), a leading expert in dog bite law& (Good Housekeeping), and the nation's best known practitioner of terrier torts (Los Angeles Times). He has been profiled in People magazine and has written for, and been the subject of articles in, numerous newspapers and magazines around the world, including Time, People, Good Housekeeping, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, and the Los Angeles Times. In addition to representing dog bite victims, Ken assists legislators in drafting dog bite laws, teaches seminars, and writes books and articles such as Dog Bite Law, and What To Do If Your Dog Has Been Injured Or Killed.
