LITERARY LOCAL | Nora Gorman of Naperville


NAPERVILLE–Naperville’s Nora Gorman has been fighting stage 4 metastatic ovarian cancer for 11 years now. She has battled the cancer six times with surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy every time it came back. She is what most would call a cancer warrior.

“Through it all, I found a new purpose in life,” says Nora, who was forced to retire from her 40-year accounting and banking job due to the cancer and the chemo side effects. “I want to encourage and give hope to other people who are battling cancer to see the light at the end of their own proverbial cancer tunnels and come out on the other side.”

My Pink Cane and Me is Nora’s personal journey through her cancer fight starting from her first diagnosis in 2010 to the present

day. It is raw, emotional, unexpected, and inspiring. “My life was completely turned upside down, but I am living proof that there is life after the big diagnosis.” Currently Nora is still in remission from her 6 cancer battles since 2016 but is still having blood tests, ovarian cancer level checks and following up with her Oncologist every 3 months.

You can find My Pink Cane and Me exclusively on Amazon.
