At age 46, world-class triathlete, dietitian, and mother, Karen Newman, was on her knees, begging for her life to end. But just when her eating disorders had once again warped her life into a shame-filled nightmare of secrets, a diagnosis of advanced breast cancer ignited a fire of courage and deepened her faith.
This gripping story reveals the incredible power words have to shatter or empower us and the astonishing potential that love has to heal. Karen inspired thousands as she continued training and competing in triathlons throughout her grueling cancer treatments, and was featured on the NBC "Today" show twice because of her remarkable change of heart and rousing message of hope.
Told with candid truth and humor, Karen s touching memoir weaves the agonies of anorexia, bulimia, and cancer, with the thrill of young love, miraculous wins on the race course, and victory over disease. With the wisdom forged in the valleys of despair and on the peaks of triumph, "Just Three Words" captures the indomitable spirit of one brave woman who against all odds survives, triumphs and finds the purpose in it all."
