Michele Fujimoto is a winter resident of Ironwood. In December of 2015, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, just four months after having a “normal” mammogram. Hope and Fear: A Journey Through Cancerland is a personal account of her struggle to understand and survive cancer. Based on actual journal entries, it captures her journey, from the shock of initial diagnosis, to coping with the side effects of treatment. Thought provoking and humorous at times, Michele encourages us to be informed about our health care decisions, and to be our own best advocates. Her newly-published memoir is now available on Amazon as a paperback or Kindle edition.
