Stephanie Hosford has a big decision to make. For her 20-year high school reunion, how should she style her hair? Little does she know, in a few months it won't matter - she'll be bald. And huge. What woman wouldn't go a little crazy? After receiving a cancer diagnosis and a positive pregnancy test within days of each other, Stephanie, a happily married mother of one and in the midst of an international adoption, is suddenly fighting for her life, her children - and her sanity. Get ready to laugh, cry, gasp, and cheer on the ultimate 9-month roller coaster that takes us everywhere from the treadmill, to infusion rooms, and even across oceans. You will not forget this wild, true and ultimately satisfying story of love, motherhood and finding the inner strength we all hope is there when we need it. .


"The odds for a positive outcome from pregnancy while battling cancer might seem improbably long, but Hosford's hopeful debut memoir proves that, with a little bit of luck and lots of grit, it is entirely possible. ... A ray of sunshine for those with similar struggles." -Kirkus Reviews "By turns humorous and poignant, Stephanie's story rings with honesty, courage and a fierce determination to triumph over cancer on her own terms." -Robert Stone, President & CEO, City of Hope National Medical Center "Alternating between doctor opinions, her medical appointments, home life, and her personal struggles, Hosford has a keen ability to take uncomfortable subject matter and lighten it with a slew of hilarious commentary. Whether readers have experienced cancer or not, Bald, Fat, & Crazy is one story that will strike a chord for all!" -San Francisco Book Review
