Cover of: Rocking the pink | Laura Roppé

About the Edition

"In 2009, just as Laura Roppe; was poised to burst onto the music scene, her doctor called her with news that left her spinning-she had been diagnosed with an extremely aggressive form of breast cancer. Just a few days earlier, the singer-songwriter had signed a dream-come-true contract with a record label; now, she wasn't even sure how much longer she had to live. Never one to back down to a challenge, however, Roppe; refused to let her fear take control of her life-instead, she gathered her courage, took stock of her priorities, and made a decision: Cancer may take my hair, she told herself, but that's all it's getting. More than a cancer journey, Rocking the Pink is a quirky, charming, and poignant ode to love, friendship, and music. Roppe; is unflinchingly honest and unfailingly funny as she tells the story of her odyssey: from childhood dreamer and giddy valet parker to the Hollywood stars to disillusioned lawyer, wife, and mother; from budding songwriter and late-blooming recording artist to determined cancer survivor. Full of raw emotion and humor that will make you laugh through your tears, Rocking the Pink is a chronicle of discovering one's true self through life's difficult circumstances-and a testament to the hang-in-tough, take-no-prisoners attitude it takes to kick cancer's butt"--
