Authors Gracelyn Bateman and Melody Lomboy-Lowe
Words of Advice for Thriving is a photography book of cancer survivors and their wisdom from their cancer journey. The purpose of this book is to give hope to those that have just received a cancer diagnosis. Their photos capture the success of survivors from all walks of life with all types of cancer. Gracelyn and Melody, authors and co-founders of Luna Peak Foundation, photographed and interviewed over one hundred cancer survivors to create this book. The visualization of diverse cancer survivors humanizes cancer and helps cancer fighters visualize their own remission as well. This book is made by cancer survivors and is meant for cancer fighters, though anyone touched by cancer will find a community in this book including families, doctors, caregivers, and support teams. Through Luna Peak Foundation, many of these books will be donated to newly diagnosed patients, their families, oncology offices, and hospitals.
