Find out more about the bucket list and buy the book here:

The Bucket List is a new novel about a young woman who discovers she has the BRCA1 gene for breast cancer at the age of 25. It explores many important themes about the impact of health issues on life choices and how women feel about their bodies, career, relationships and sexuality. These issues are particularly topical for Cancer Awareness Month and in light of our current political environment. 

How does a women's body and breasts impact her life and sense of self? How do we prioritize ourselves in the fast-paced competitive environment of NYC? This empowering story about Lacey Whitman, who creates a boob Bucket List to help her get more clarity after her BRCA1 diagnosis is both serious and sexy. The book is a moving story about one women's journey to navigate illness and mortality, control and surrender, female sensuality and desire. We will explore the many challenges for individuals around health choices, such as evaluating whether to get tested or to have a mastectomy like Angelina Jolie. How do our choices change our lives?

Lenore is a transformational coach who works with clients around their growth and leadership which often involves managing change and choices. Lenore is passionate about helping individuals to connect with their mind, body, spirit and emotions to integrate and align their values so they can access their full life energy. Consider joining us for both the group discussion and the process group to explore your feelings around the issues raised by the book.
