I Fought Like a Girl and I Won!: The Journey Continues


by Nicole Alyse Dorman

Breast cancer survivors are continuously fighting on the battlefield to win the war on their physical, mental, and emotional health. You’ve got to be strong, remain positive, and be courageous to overcome the disease.

“Cancer isn’t an opponent in some war game you can stomp out by mindset or determination.”

Nicole Dorman discovered she had stage two cancer in January 2014, “it was really difficult when I got the news, not having all the answers and I didn’t want to lie to me kids, obviously because I was going to go through a lot of physical changes, but I had to try and explain it to them and bring it down to their level.”

Nicole refused to let her cancer affect her and wants to encourage other people to do the same. At the age of 34, she received the call after detecting a lump in October 2013. However, her book I fought like a girl and I won came a year later.

Never Give Up!

“My motto is, I got cancer, I can get through anything.” 

Her second book,  “I Fought Like a Girl and I Won!: The Journey Continues” is inspiring, informative, and passionate. Nicole’s determination to win her battle and a positive mental attitude has allowed her to share her insightful story with her readers. Her daughter’s beautiful illustrations take you along on her journey. Her story is uplifting and inspiring.

If you or a loved one is going through cancer, this book can provide insight, comfort, and support.

“I Fought Like a Girl and I Won!: The Journey Continues” is available now in Amazon.
