Book Shares Author’s Deepest Struggles, while Battling Breast Cancer
Breast Left Unsaid, on sale October 10th date via Amazon.com, is Jude’s 18-month memoir recounting the days when her life became a self-described "Category 5 Hurricane". Imagine it: you’re in the midst a of heart-wrenching divorce, your best friend in the whole world has just passed, both of your parents are ill, and then the final bomb gets dropped – “You’ve got cancer.”
In Jude’s typical brash and unapologetic manner, she picked herself up from her bootstraps (after yelling, generally despairing and breaking things), and embarks on a life-altering journey.
“I didn’t know it at the time, but while I was living through this really abysmal period of my life, Breast Left Unsaid was writing itself,” Jude shares. "I felt like I was on this mission to move others past the awareness of this disease and understand in real terms how our lives are impacted. I guess my main motivation now, because I'm still battling breast cancer, is to hopefully make the struggle that anyone is going through; whether its cancer or whatever enormous crisis is invading your life - a little easier to reconcile. As cliché as it sounds, it helps to know that you’re not alone; that even when things seem their bleakest – they can get better. If I can offer hope - or with any luck, a laugh to even just one person dealing with this mess – I’ll be satisfied."
Jude is available to comment for local and national media on the following topics: breast cancer, divorce, conflicts & struggles, death and hope.

About Jude Callirgos
Jude Callirgos was born and raised on Long Island, NY and moved to Connecticut in her teens where she has lived ever since. She is currently a Human Resources executive working in the digital media space for IAC, but spent the earlier part of her professional career focused on the arts both as a producer and performer. She co-founded a theater company in Connecticut and was the executive producer for several years - as well as very active in the theater and film community as an actor and singer. Her background in casting and directing actors led to recruiting, which led to a wonderfully logical segue into corporate Human Resources. She writes about both of those worlds on her blog judesthinkin.
