“Karen Truesdell’s book, No More Pink, is a delight and a must-read for anyone going through breast cancer and or breast cancer recovery. As a breast cancer survivor myself, I wish I had had this book to help me navigate the rough waters of breast cancer and recovery. With genuineness and practicality, Karen gently shares her story, some beautiful poetry, and lots of valuable tips and action steps. There are tons of great suggestions covering every step of the way on the rigorous healing journey coming back from breast cancer. I highly recommend Karen’s real and informative book.”
