Throughout her life Sharon Rose has had more than her share of adversity. The challenges have been many, but she has always been able to draw on an inner strength to face what comes and live life to the full. Her resilience, determination and indomitable cheerfulness have seen her through the challenges caused by her father's mental illness, her daughter's Asperger's syndrome, the shock of her brother's death and her own fight against breast cancer as well as problems with money and the breakdown of her marriage. This is Sharon's fourth book in which she draws on her own experience to give hope and inspiration to others.
One cold November day, at the age of forty-five, Sharon Rose was given devastating news when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was the beginning of a series of traumatic events that would change her life for ever, but through the struggles ahead she was sustained by the love and kindness of family and friends as well as her own determination and zest for life.Throughout this difficult time Sharon kept a journal, recording her feelings, her hopes and sometimes her despair as she fought her way through. This journal has formed the basis of Sharon's book, Single - Salsa - Survivor.A second journal, written as an outpouring of her emotions after the suicide of her brother, resulted in Living in Grief, Loving in Grief. The books are designed to help others who are battling against cancer, or those coping with bereavement, and to give them hope for the future.Proceeds from the sales of the books are used to support local and national charities.
