In 1993 Liz Tilberis seemed to have it all. She was a working mother with a family who adored her. As editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazzar, she lived at the center of the glamorous world of international fashion and was widely recognized as one of the most powerful people in the industry. And in 1993, Liz Tilberis was diagnosed with Stage III ovarian cancer.
Suddenly she was faced with the challenge of a lifetime, joining the ranks of the 175,000 women in America with Ovarian cancer. She underwent major surgery, grueling chemothereapy, and, eventually, when the cancer recurred, a life-threatening bone marrow transplant. Through it all she refused to let the disease get the better of her, continuing to participate fully in her life as wife, mother, and career woman. And she eduacted herself about the disease that threatened her life. Ultimately, Tilberis concluded that she developed ovarian cancer as a result of infertility treatments she underwent years earlier--a link that the medical establishment has been reluctant to aknowledge. Her experience led Tilberis to become president of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund and to address countless issues surrounding the devastating disease.
From diagnosis through recovery and recurrence, and on to a rich, rewarding, transformed life, No Time to Die is a frank, no-holds-barred look into the world of fashion and a candid account of a battle with a debilitating illness. Approaching every obstacle with optimism, humor and grace, Liz Tilberis has written a story that celebrates life and the ultimate triumph of a passionate, determined, and courageous woman.
