This week is National Women’s Health Week and a nationwide call is underway to empower women with knowledge to take control of their health and encourage each other along the way. Continuing their commitment to the wellbeing of women, Allstate and bestselling author Hollye Jacobs are releasing a new free Spanish version of “The Silver Lining Companion Guide” in addition to a free English version available nationwide.

The companion guide is a condensed version of Jacob’s New York Times bestselling book “The Silver Lining: A supportive and Insightful Guide to Breast Cancer,” and includes practical tips, important information and inspiration for those undergoing breast cancer. Every year, approximately 250,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed.

“Allstate is dedicated to supporting the wellbeing of women across the country,” said Stacy Sharpe, senior vice president of corporate relations, at Allstate Insurance Company. “It is Allstate’s hope, and the hope of our agency owners across the country who have volunteered to distribute the guide, that it will prove to be a source of comfort, knowledge and inspiration to all who read it.”

The Spanish companion guide, “Rayo de esperanza: Manual de apoyo para enfrentar el cancer de seno,” was translated from the original English language version to resonate with the Latina community. To launch the new Spanish version, Allstate and Jacobs have joined forces with host of Telemundo’s “Un Nuevo Día” and breast cancer survivor Adamari Lopez. This is the first of its kind Spanish-language resource and will debut later this week (Thursday, May 14) at White Memorial Medical Center in Los Angeles.

“Sharing advice and support through the partnership with Allstate and its agencies with ‘The Silver Lining Companion Guide’ is an incredible and unique opportunity to reach everyone impacted by breast cancer,” said Hollye Jacobs, RN, MS, MSW. “I wish I had this guide when I was going through my breast cancer experience. The absence of this resource is what inspired me to write the book and to ultimately support the health and wellbeing of all women, especially those who are going through the most challenging of life circumstances.”

The free companion guide is available for download or for pick up at participating distribution centers and select Allstate agencies nationwide. Download or find the nearest participating distribution center at http://ift.tt/1sOIpMA.
