“I am blown away by this tender story that preaches to the soul. Nana’s journey is a testimony of trust and faith in the face of uncertainty that leads to triumph. Gye Nyame.”

Dr. Cedric M Bright 112th President National Medical Association

Excellent piece! This work speaks clearly to the need for understanding among people… family, and friends. His attention to the seriousness of healthcare risk, even potentially mortal risks, reinforces our collective responsibility to care for one another.”

Dr. Rahn Kennedy Bailey 113th President National Medical Association  

“I really enjoyed it, it was a fun read. That’s important because if it’s not enjoyable it will not be consumed. I like the Afrocentricity of the story and the underlying theme of breast cancer prevention and awareness.”

Dr. Oliver Brooks 119th President National Medical Association

“I am moved by the gentleness of the stories of women told by the men who love them. We as women understand the power of the village of the sisterhood; it protects in ways that allow for the maturation of our true selves. Breast cancer robs us of some and yet offers an opportunity for the strength of the village to be realized for those who remain in its care . Thanks for sharing this truth.
