Help a Patient through the Holidays - Virtual Giving Event Join us and help a patient through the holidays by donating a cancer book written by Minneapolis native, Caryn Fine Sullivan, and attending her virtual author event about finding “Happiness through Hardship” on Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 7pm CDT. Donate a book or two NOW through our event link and you will receive a ticket to this virtual book reading and giving event! All books will be donated to Gilda’s Club Twin Cities (GCTC), a community where people impacted by cancer gather, connect and learn. An independent and locally-funded affiliate of the worldwide Cancer Support Community, GCTC provides support, education, hope and healing to Minnesotans currently impacted by cancer.

Caryn inspires people to embrace positivity and find resilience during hard times. First diagnosed with cancer when she was a newlywed, Caryn was determined that it wouldn’t make her life horrible. In “Happiness through Hardship”, she shares stories and best practices for individuals to take care of themselves, become resilient and uncover joy along the way, even when life is tough…especially during the holidays. Caryn is the founder of Pretty Wellness, author and podcast host of “Happiness through Hardship” and two time breast cancer survivor thriving with stage IV disease.
