Westchester Author Raising Funds for Women’s Cancer Services

Cathleen O'Connor, author of "Harriet Takes the Wheel"

Cathleen O’Connor, author of Harriet Takes the Wheel, is leading a movement to take women from frenzy to freedom. In the process, O’Connor intends to raise $5,000 for Support Connection, an organization based in Yorktown Heights that provides free, confidential support services to people across the country who are affected by breast and ovarian cancer. O’Connor says that 20% of her Harriet Takes the Wheel book sales will go directly to Support Connection, which offers such services as peer counselling, support groups, wellness workshops, education and referrals. The organization’s annual Support-A-Walk for Breast and Ovarian Cancer is scheduled for Sunday, October 3, 2010.

O’Connor is also providing a free guided imagery meditation designed to maintain calm and peace in those undergoing chemotherapy. This downloadable 30-minute audio will be given to anyone who requests it. In addition, a webinar entitled “The 7 Powers Every Woman Possesses” will be available for free to anyone who buys the book and donates an additional $15 to Support Connection. During the webinar, O’Connor will share inspiring stories from women across the country who made unexpected life transitions, triumphed over adversity and found their own sense of empowerment.
