About Laura Holmes Haddad
I was 37 years old with two small kids when I was diagnosed with stage IV inflammatory breast cancer.
I’m a writer. I’m also a mom, wife, sister, and daughter. I write about food and wine (I’m a culinary school graduate and former cookbook editor), but since my battle with cancer, I write about what it’s like to be a patient. Becoming a cancer patient changed my perspective on everything, but particularly what’s it like to be a patient. When I’m not writing, I’m hanging out with my two kids and my husband in Northern California, chasing after our dog, cooking, going to the movies, reading, hiking, or paddle boarding. I’m a survivor/thriver, having completed a clinical trial chemotherapy drug in May 2015 with no sign of cancer returning.
