About Shirley Alarie

I spent the first twenty years of my career in an industrial manufacturing environment, running around the hamster wheel as fast as my legs would carry me. My breast cancer diagnosis jammed on the brakes and forced me to put life in perspective. My journey since breast cancer has been focused on making a positive difference in the world. Stepping off the hamster wheel has brought greater harmony to me and my home!

I wrote my memoir "Losing the Girls: My Journey Through Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy and Beyond" to entertain as well as spread awareness of this surgery choice. The follow-up, "The Road Paved in Pink: A Practical and Personal Guide for Breast Cancer Patients and Their Loved Ones" is Part 2 of my Breast Cancer Series. This booklet is HELP and HOPE in a time of need.

Recently published "A Healing Haven - Saving Horses and Humans at RVR Horse Rescue" formally launched my Lemons to Lemonade series of inspirational 'triumph over tragedy' true stories. I'm currently working on the third installment.
