Reston Author Raises Money and Awareness about Cancer through New Memoir

Reston, VA, March 3, 2014 – Sean Murphy, local speaker and author, has recently partnered with Chris4Life to raise money and awareness about caring for a loved one with cancer.

His book, Please Talk About Me When I’m Gone, explains how he and his family struggled with the illness which resulted in his mother’s death in 2002. “I knew I would inevitably write about her, but I wasn’t certain what form the material would take. Eventually I realized it could be –it had to be– a memoir. The result is Please Talk about Me When I’m Gone,” explained Murphy.

Chris4Life is a non-profit organization whose mission is to permanently eliminate the threat of colon cancer through discovery of a cure. Chris4Life has partnered with Murphy to share his experience with cancer with its supporters through books sales. 100% of each book sale through is being donated to the organization. “I am pleased to have Sean join our team to eradicate colon cancer. His book is an invaluable resource for anyone who cancer has touched, and we are honored by his generosity and enthusiasm,” Michael Sapienza, President and Founder, Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation said.

“I’m excited, and honored, to announce my official partnership with the amazing folks at Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation. Writing the memoir was a necessary healing process, making sense of her death while keeping her memory alive. More than that, I hoped to reinforce my belief that nobody should (or need to) go through this alone,” explained Murphy.

Please Talk About Me When I’m Gone is currently ranked #2 in Hot New Releases on in the Personal Growth and Inspiration category.

It’s early in that lamentable decade of the 2000s, and while the good times continue to roll in corporate America, they won’t be rolling for much longer—and no one knows it better than Byron, the Everyman narrator of Sean Murphy’s witty and wise firecracker of a debut. If you liked Joshua Ferris’s AND THEN WE CAME TO THE END, you’ll love NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE. Byron might not have a future, but Sean Murphy certainly does.
