Turning a Big Negative into A Bigger Positive: Erin Richard’s Story

Erin Richard’s memoir of her cancer journey, Turning a Big Negative into a Bigger Positive, published by HARP The People’s Press, was launched at the Cape Breton Cancer Centre on Dec. 12, 2019.  Since the launch, Erin’s memoir has been moving up daily on the Amazon bestseller lists, ranking #9 in the Healing category and # 13 in the Oncology as of Dec. 19 2019.

As the video shows, her supportive community turned out in force – her parents and her husband (behind the video camera), her friends, her professional caregivers, and so many others that she has touched and inspired.  The line up to have Erin sign her book, wound out the door.  Erin sold 61 books and donated the proceeds to the Cancer Patient Care Fund.

Erin’s gift to publishers Dorothy Lander and John Graham-Pole is her original artwork of The Lonely Lady featured on p. 70 of her memoir

Erin signed her book for her medical oncologist, Dr Khodadad, who spoke so warmly and eloquently of Erin.
