I compiled, edited, and published the two books below with the help of dozens of women who willingly wrote out their most painful experiences in detail, from the initial excitement of that positive pregnancy test to the horror of the negative ultrasound or other indications of something gone wrong. Some, like me, recovered without chemotherapy. Many did not. Their experiences, their feelings, the reactions of their friends, families, and doctors, their highs and lows, their successes and failures, and yes, even the occasional recurrence are captured here as a testament to their strength and their desire to help others like them.
If you choose to purchase a copy of one or both of these books, please know that by using the links below and purchasing your copies directly from my publisher, a greater percentage of your payment ($4–$5 per print copy) will go toward the continued operation and development of this website. If you buy from an outside vendor such as Amazon or other source, I receive only $1–$2 per copy at most. I understand if you choose to buy elsewhere, and I appreciate your purchase regardless. I hope that you find the book or books to be informative and supportive. You will find my own story in the 2008 volume, and in the 2015 volume you will find a foreword written by Dr. Donald Goldstein of the New England Trophoblastic Disease Center at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, considered one of the best physicians in the field of GTD. Thank you for visiting.

I am not affiliated with Dr. Jessica Zucker, but I recently discovered her website, where she sells cards that truly express the kind of sympathy and understanding a woman who has lost a child needs to receive from her friends and family. I was so impressed by these cards that I wanted to add a link to them here for any family members who are trying to help a loved one and simply don’t know how to say it. (Warning: Some of the cards use strong language that might be offensive to some people.)
