When Alicia Bertine lost her long, beautiful hair due to aggressive chemotherapy, the 23- year-old thought her modeling dreams were over. However, she quickly came to grips with her new reality and went out proudly without a hat or wig. And Alicia even started building her modeling portfolio, despite two recurrences of cancer. “I didn’t let go of my dreams,” she writes. “I wasn’t going to let illness get me down for one more day.” Now she’s a successful, bald model, actress, and inspirational speaker.
From Lemons to Lemonade is a celebration of Alicia and 100 other people who have overcome hardships and found the blessings in their lives. Deemed “the most inspirational people you’ll ever meet” by Chicken Soup for the Soul co-author and publisher, Amy Newmark, each story’s author is truly a role model and an example of the human spirit’s resilience.
