From Paris With Love by Priscilla Lalisse-Jespersen


How would you react if ten days into a transatlantic moveand a new job you found out that you had breast cancer?

Priscilla Lalisse-Jespersen had been living in Paris for over 15 years when she had her first mammogram, which, incidentally, took place the day before she moved back to the United States. Ten days later, when she’d already started a new job, the mammogram
results came in: she had advanced breast cancer.

How do you navigate that? How do you manage when your entire world is upended?
In this book—part memoir, part practical advice—Lalisse-Jespersen takes readers into her personal journey with breast cancer. She candidly shares her experiences dealing with the challenges of treatment, relationships and culture shock, and she offers detailed advice to help other breast cancer survivors, their families and their friends.

Priscilla Lalisse-Jespersen is the author of two previous books, Stockdale and Next of Kin. A graduate of Austin Peay State University, she moved to Paris, France in the late 1990’s after working in Manhattan as a magazine editor. Priscilla is also the Editor and Founder of the award-winning blog, Prissy Mag and has been a freelance writer for The Washington Post since 2013. In addition, her work has been featured on BBC London Radio, Voice of America News, Entrée to Black Paris, Bonjour Paris, Expat Radio, Vingt Paris and Black Entertainment Television.
