Gregory’s journey through treatment and chemotherapy was documented by news anchor, Edie Lambert of KCRA-TV Sacramento. ‘Susan’s Story; A Message of Hope’, the acclaimed video journal of her battle, received a regional Emmy in 2004, and encouraged Gregory to follow her dream of becoming a novelist.
