Anna Carabetta, an avid volunteer for several nonprofit organizations who has experience in banking, fitness, health and wellness, and management, has completed her new book, 'A Woman's Journey through her Husband's Prostate Cancer': a charming true-to-life narrative in a couple's story of inspiration, faith, love, and family.


Anna writes, 'A Woman's Journey through her Husband's Prostate Cancer is a title I chose due to the discovery in 1999 of my husband's cancer; we were all affected. My entire family. I needed my mother and brothers and sisters to assist me with my family life while my family life was on hold. Without the support and guidance of physicians and family, I do not believe I would be as strong as I am today and have the family bond as I do today.'

Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Anna Carabetta's new book inspires the readers, both young and old and from all walks of life, as she saw the importance of telling the story of what they have gone through in order to guide people as to how they should approach the same situation.


This book allows one to evaluate their lives and see to it that they are aware of their health so that one will not have to face whatever problem that arrives unprepared.
