Tyler oncologist Dr. Sasha Vukelja, left, autographs copies of her books, SEEDS: A Memoir and Seeds from my Patients, during the “Friend to Friend” luncheon held Tuesday at First United Methodist Church in Jacksonville. Dr. V – as she's better known – was the key speaker at the third annual event, which promotes breast and cervical health awareness. Proceeds from the books are donated to Cancer Foundation for Life, a local organization that helps empowers cancer patients by providing free exercise programs – such as FitSTEPS for Life – designed to promote good health during their recovery.
