“Before getting my diagnosis, I walked through life without purpose, without a reason to be. What happened in my life needed to happen, I needed to live it. I needed to pass through these painful experiences to be the woman that I am today, a better version of myself.”
Adamari López, the internationally known actress, had everything—a loving family, a perfect boyfriend, and a leading role on a successful telanovela in Mexico—when three words changed her life forever: you have cancer. Suddenly, in only a few months, the world that she knew collapsed and her life was turned upside-down.
In Thriving, the normally private López reveals the triumphs and trials of her life, sharing anecdotes of her childhood and her family while describing her journey through breast cancer; the sudden illness of her mother; her wedding, one of the happiest days of her life; and, later, what she considers to be the hardest blow of all: the dissolution of her marriage. However, through it all, her strength and her faith never failed, and her loving and positive spirit, along with her perpetual smile, helped her to discover a new and rewarding start in love and in life.
