A Look into Kimberly’s Diary: ‘Dear Diary, Does This Cancer Make My Ass Look Fat?’ : Life can change in the blink of an eye. Take it from Kimberly Tronic who was living a normal life with her biggest worry being running out of hot sauce or coffee. At the age of thirty-six, her carefree lifestyle did a full 360 as she received news that she had stage three ovarian cancer.
Months of chemo. Major surgery. And a lot of uncertainty.
Dear Diary, Does This Cancer Make My Ass Look Fat? is a peek into her deeply personal and touching memoir of surviving cancer. Kimberly attacks her battle with laughter, which is apparently the best medicine.
As she brilliantly states, “You can’t be scared of chemo when you’re wearing a coconut bra.” With her laughter, costumes, colorful wigs and positivity, she was able to remain upbeat during a challenging hardship, but came out stronger than ever.
Find elements of Bridget Jones’s Diary combined with the motivation provided by a modern woman’s self help book to get through difficult times. This is suitable for cancer victims and people in need of a change with different positive perspectives.
Throughout her book, Kimberly dishes out every detail about her baldness, breakdowns and breakthroughs and shows that a little ‘tumor humor’ is just what the doctor prescribed.
This honest book full of truth contains Kimberly’s diary entries of her biggest struggles. She depicts how the difficulties led her to growth making it her most transformational year of her whole life. Cancer may have taken a lot from her, but it gave her so much more – life lessons, epiphanies, and a whole new attitude of gratitude. These are blessings that she will carry on for the rest of her life.
Like most of us, Kimberly describes herself as “allergic to normal”. When she is not scribbling in her journal or chewing on pencils, Kimberly enjoys cleaning and vacuuming (straight lines and right angles only), creating jingles, cracking bad jokes and fueling her caffeine addiction.
Her personal interests include weightlifting and running. She has completed five marathons including the LA marathon just six months after her first round of chemo! She is passionate about animal welfare and the climate crisis. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her cats and her very well developed collection of refrigerator magnets.
Kimberly and her writing have already caught the attention of producers in Hollywood. This is Kimberly’s first book and her second book is coming soon!
