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.

Sean Murphy's NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE offers a voice rarely seen -- that whisper of human suffering that comes from an insular heart. It's as if the photo negative suddenly spoke, and claimed to be the real image, the real person behind the living color and magnetism of what we find in our everyday moment-to-moment existence. As Byron moves into and through his "Terrible Thirties," and the dot-com. boom of wild heights and terrifying drops, we move with him... but we also get to watch, and be that cautious eye which only has to watch, and doesn't have to be. Which is both blessing and curse in this romp of Americana, half FIGHT CLUB, half CATCHER IN THE RYE for the middle-aged. Regardless, I'm hooked -- and want to stay that way.
