Publisher's Summary

Mina is single and young and has been diagnosed with breast cancer. This audio presentation follows Mina and her journey to explore society’s emphasis on breasts as she makes a difficult decision regarding her treatment.

Young women face many different struggles from older breast cancer patients. They are still in the their childbearing years, and the effects of cancer treatment can prevent them from not only breastfeeding but also from conceiving. Younger breast cancer patients often have difficulty with self-esteem and having the confidence to date.

Mina struggles with these issues and meets a collection of characters on her journey to figure out what she wants from life, ultimately embracing her power to live life boldly.

Keepingabreast is a full-cast performance starring Amy McFadden as Mina and featuring Tanya Eby, Kyle Los, Craig Powers, and Kate Rudd in multiple roles. Keepingabreast uses comedy, cynicism, and a touching story to address a very real issue.

Insightful and Entertaining

This audio play captures the feelings of a young woman who is facing a frightening diagnosis of breast cancer. Presented with humor and realism through the voice of an endearing protagonist, the story both entertains and sheds light on the complex feelings that accompany a serious health crisis. I listened to it in one sitting, and I highly recommend it!

Beautifully Written Journey

When you can listen to a story, novel, or play and it can make you laugh hysterically one second and cry the next is a testament to great writing and great storytelling. The voice actors are phenomenal and you can feel every emotion they are conveying. The journey of Mina is heartwarming, honest and emotional. The adaptation from play to audiobook is seamless. This is 90 minutes well spent.
