Cowgirl author

When the doctor told Dawn Nelson that she had cancer in 2005, she was six months pregnant with her first child. Test results had revealed a cancerous tumor in her stomach, and Nelson was informed that she probably wouldn't live to meet her baby girl.
Out of a desire to have her baby know who she was, Nelson began to write a memoir of her life. Unknown to Nelson, this book would change the course of her career.
“We decided to go ahead and have her [the baby]. And I started writing my first book so that she would know who I was,” explained Nelson.
