In the midst of her struggles, Blanco was diagnosed with breast cancer, underwent multiple surgeries as she fought for her life, and worked constantly to keep her children together in their “ohana,” the family she had constructed for them.
Her story is a heartbreaking one of failure and strength through faith, of the cruelty of intimacy and the kindness of friends – in other words, a narrative of real life. Readers will see parts of themselves in Blanco during her dark days, but also hopes for a better way of living in her triumphs and gained wisdom.
Blanco currently resides in the United States. She has worked as a personal trainer, legal assistant and later owned her own private investigative agency. To write this book, Blanco relived the bitter past she had left behind. Her cancer is under control (Stage IV never goes into remission) and she continues to help her children through their ongoing pain.
