Casey Quinlan, author of the Amazon bestseller “Cancer for Christmas: Making the Most of a Daunting Gift,” is on the list of 100 Hometown Heroes named by Virginia personal-injury law firm Allen & Allen as part of the firm’s 100th anniversary celebration .

Announcing the list, Allen & Allen said, “These are the folks that make Virginia a great place to live and work. We asked and you responded. We received an outpouring of nominations. Through a selection committee, the nominations were narrowed down to 100 Hometown Heroes.”

Casey was nominated as a Hometown Hero in late April: “Casey’s approach to her own cancer treatment has inspired millions. Her advice: be an active participant, not a passive consumer. Her book, Cancer for Christmas: Making the Most of a Daunting Gift, ¬†shares the questions she asked her doctors, what she did with the answers, and how she navigated surgery, chemo, and radiation treatment with determination, ferocity, and a large dose of humor.”

Allen & Allen will be recognizing Casey Quinlan and the rest of the Hometown Heroes at a series of events in Richmond, Charlottesville, and Fredericksburg, culminating with a celebration at the Richmond Flying Squirrels game on Wednesday, August 25.
