Living Life Through the Prism of Uncertainty And Having a Good Time!

About the Book

The content presented in this book derives from my actual experiences as a breast cancer patient and survivor. At the time of my cancer diagnosis, I didn’t have the slightest idea of what to do.  I needed to navigate the medical maze effectively as a cancer patient and quickly move beyond being scared and shocked.  

Who I Am

My name is Catherine L. Doughty, MS, CCHI.  I read informatics journal articles, do frequency analyses, finance, make charts and statistical tables. I have LED lights in my cateyed reading glasses, but don’t be fooled. I am a tall, sexy, and intelligent individual who prides herself on the ability to create viable solutions for individuals and institutions, and likes to be called Cathy or Cat.


“I admire how Cathy overcame adversity after adversity with dignity and an unbound wicked sense of humor. If you think the book is instructive or humorous, you should hear her in person!”

–Kim Dunn, MD, Ph.D.
