Abilene resident and author Starr Gregory signed copies of her book 'Everything's Pink' Saturday at Hastings.

Her book is based on her encounter with breast cancer and getting through it. She aims to let readers experience sadness, laughter and the fear of the unknown.

Another goal of the book is to keep your faith no matter what situation a reader is faced with.

Gregory says of the book, "There's some sad, some happy, and I just wanted to be an inspiration for people. I am hoping my book will put a smile on somebody's face."

The book is Gregory's first publication.
