Raised to be a self-effacing nurturer, Kate Rice silenced her voice, ignored her dreams and played the supportive wife to try to save a doomed marriage.
Now, with her devastating divorce behind her, and her kids starting lives of their own, she’s free. Free to leave New York, the city that broke her heart, free to return to the mountains she loves.
Free to figure out who she really is.
And then she gets a stage 4 cancer diagnosis.
She’d been chasing her dreams—singing in a rock band, doing stand-up comedy, and completing a 17-mile run over a 13,000-foot mountain in Colorado. How could she have cancer? And not just any cancer, but anaplastic thyroid cancer, one of the fastest growing and most aggressive of all cancers, with a median survival rate of four months.
But anaplastic thyroid cancer never met Kate Rice. Armed with a sense of humor, an indomitable spirit, and a tenacious will to live, she starts to stand up for herself. And that includes embracing her cure—surgeries, radiation, chemo and immunotherapy—with her irreppressible joie de vivre.
By turns poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, Cured chronicles the transcendental and against-the-odds triumph of a good girl discovering the healing power of her own badassery.

A party girl's sassy memoir about how the right hijacked Jesus, and how progressive Christians--the ones who play well with others and have a sense of humor--and the secular can work together to take back God, flag and country.
These are stories of how the American people are proving the pundits wrong, where conservative Christians and the totally secular work together to resettle refugees from all nations and of all faiths.
For centuries, wave after wave of newcomers have loved and fought each other in this land of brutal beauty,
And this arid stretch of high desert is, in its own way, a microcosm of America, a land of contradiction and hope.
