Every year approximately 250,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer – it’s the most common cancer and leading cause of cancer death among Hispanic and Latina women.
Allstate has partnered with Hollye Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of “The Silver Lining,” to help women diagnosed with breast cancer as well as their friends and families. Empowering women to take control of their health and happiness, Allstate and Jacobs are on a mission to connect women nationwide by providing a free silver lining companion guide to everyone impacted by breast cancer– and launched the Spanish version of the guide.
Hollye was a vegan eating, marathon running, 39 year old mom and registered nurse when she was diagnosed. Today, the cancer survivor wants people to be prepared with early detection and the tools they need to find their silver linings.

I have a couple close friends who are dealing with cancer and it is sad but sometimes I just don’t know what to say. I know it’s not right and I need to be a better friend. After reading The Sliver Lining I really felt I needed to be a better friend and be there more.
Here are a couple of ways I want to support my friends:
- Learn to listen
- Go to doctor and be her note taker
- Give surprise gift bags with fun stuff
- Call/email more
- Offer to do something with her kids when she is having a rough day
