Ann Tracy Marr

Biography

Born in the metro Detroit area, Ann Tracy Marr considered herself an average person. She spent her time mothering two girls, fixing computers, and publishing fantasy romances. Then Marr was diagnosed with breast cancer. She became the average cancer patient. Since her mother, aunt, and grandmother all suffered the plague of wildly growing cells in their breasts, she was not surprised. But the diagnosis tightened to triple negative breast cancer. Marr was no longer an everyday cancer sufferer. She was something worse, a high-risk cancer patient.

Drawing on solid, Midwest determination, Marr decided to fight cancer intelligently. She wrote a diary to keep track of details like, “What is that drug for,” and “when did I start to feel that symptom,” things that fall through the cracks of complicated medical treatment. She also researched medical procedures and side effects to stay on top of the doctors, maintain sanity, and anticipate the next cul-de-sac on her route to health.

Marr beat the cancer. When she surfaced from the quagmire of treatment, she realized that her diary could help others diagnosed with breast cancer, especially the dreaded triple negative. She published Dear Cancer, confident that her quirky, easy to follow writing style could help others facing the deadly tumors.
