Amy Newmark, Chief Editor and Publisher for the Chicken Soup for the Soul Series, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2018. She worked as much as she could through treatment. As part of her job, she reads hundreds of stories of people's precarious moments and their resulting resilience. Living through her own precarious moment, Amy saw these stories through a whole new light and found comfort in them when she needed it the most. Stories Heal.
