Geralyn Lucas was an Editorial Producer at ABC News 20/20 before becoming a director of original programming at Lifetime Television where she is also a proud member of Lifetime's Stop Breast Cancer for Life initiative.

Her book is a soulful, surprising coming of age journey by a dynamo who used her own adversity as a platform for examining issues all young women face.

Having finished journalism school and landed her dream job at age 27, the last thing Geralyn Lucas expected to hear was a breast cancer diagnosis. She decided to go public with her disease despite fears about the backlash at work, and her bold choices in treatment were irreverent and uplifting. When her breast was under construction and her hair was falling out, her skirts got shorter. She went to work every day and got promoted. She reinvented her beauty and in a bold move of conscious objection, forgoes the final phase of her breast reconstruction: the nipple. She was reborn in a tattoo parlor where she got a heart tattoo where her nipple once was.

Geralyn recovered from her mastectomy and chemo and had a baby in the same hospital where she was treated for cancer. What could have been a huge negative for this young cancer survivor became the impetus to examine her own sexuality and burgeoning womanhood.

Virtually nothing has been written for women of a young age who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Her book also deals with the broader issue of self-acceptance that anyone grappling with questions of illness, self-image and sexuality can identify with.

Then Came Life
This talk is humorous and fun with Geralyn's perspective of what happens after survival...with over-riding themes of empowerment, motivation, taking care of yourself, living life to the fullest, and wellness education... She talks about life after survival... including - kids, job, weight gain, aging, motherhood, life. She approaches the topics in a light hearted and humorous way, but also talks about how to deal with those things in life that come along regardless of who you are and what challenges you face (as a women)... and how to deal with life while feeling blessed to be alive.
