Author Tina Gayle is helping Romance Lives Forever Blog
celebrate Cancer Awareness Week 2016. RLF has added pink racing stripes to the left side of the blog’s background to represent a pink ribbon, but this week is about all types of cancer. Join us as we delve into rich stories about life.
Even the threat of cancer can cause stress. The days before
a doctor gets the results of the test can seem like forever. When I was in my
teens, my mother found a lump in her breasts. The only way for them to tell if
it was cancerous was to do a biopsy. Back in those days, a woman had to check
into a hospital to have a biopsy done. The days before the biopsy, I remember believing that those
may be the last days of my time with her. We grew very close during that time
and remained close afterward. When I decided to write CEO’s Widow, I remembered the pain I
suffered and tried to add that to the story. This book does not go into the
technical aspects of the treatment. Instead, it is about the emotional pain the
cancer causes.

CEO’s Widow 

From Kayelle Allen: This week on Romance Lives Forever I’m sharing stories by
authors who have faced cancer either in themselves, or a family member. The
importance of friends and family, and having a support system is vital. One key
to success is being able to ask for help — and then being willing to accept
it. It’s a lesson I’ve had in my own life during various times. I don’t accept
help well. It’s something I fight with all the time. I’d like to think “I’ve
got this” but sometimes I don’t have as good a grip as I thought I did.
I have a friend who’s dealing with cancer right now. A friend’s brother died
from cancer last year. Cancer affects all of us. I hope I’m even half as good a
friend as those you’ll read about in this series.

I’m presenting these posts as an opportunity for the authors
to share their real life stories, as well as their fictional ones. There’s a
short list of ways you can show your support at the end of each post.

Breast Cancer: How It Affects Us All by Tina Gayle

Even if you have never had the disease,
you probably know someone who has had it or who has lost a loved one to it. My aunt
had it and died back in the early seventies. I remember because my father would
not say anything other than she died of cancer. The sad thing was he didn’t even
learn she was sick until he heard of her death.
Back then if you had cancer of any
kind, people avoided you as if you had some type of plague for fear of catching
it.
Through the years, I’ve had other
family members who’ve faced breast cancer and have survived. My mother was told
that they found a lump and underwent surgery. Lucky for all of us, it was not cancer.
By sharing my own history, I hope
you can see that no matter whether we personally have the disease or not, it affects
our lives and the people we care for. Each person goes through a lot of emotion
when fighting cancer. That’s why I decided to use the pain of dealing with the disease
in the last book in my Executive Wives’ Club series, CEO’s Widow.
Marianne Clark is the matriarch of
group. She has watched as each woman recovers from the loss of her husband in the
fatal crash that killed all of their husbands. She’s supported them and considers
each of them a member of her family.

Interview with Tina Gayle

Why did you write
this book?
This is the last book in the Executive Wives’ Club series. I
started this series to show how important women are to women. Marianne has been
the glue that has keep these women together. She believes that her family and
friends are enough until she is told she might have breast cancer. Then she is
forced to realize that she may not have much of a life left.
Already in love with Knox, she decides she needs to grab
life by the balls and squeak out every ounce of pleasure she can. Now all she
has to do is face the future with strength and determination.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
Romance. I fell in love with romantic stories at a young age
and can’t get enough. Doesn’t matter what subgenre, I need a romance to make a
story worth reading. The main reason, I believe is because I love the emotion
of loving someone. It is never easy.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
I believe it is Romeo and Juliet. It goes to show how far we
will go to be with the one we love.
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
Now, that I’ve finished the Executive Wives’ Club series. I
want to get back to my Family Tree series. The next book is Winter Wonders. It
is not an easy story because of the pain the main character is going through.
Learning to realize we can change certain events in our life is a difficult
pill to swallow especially if you are a psychic.
Please tell us about
your latest book.
