McManamy told ABC News in July that she received a terminal diagnosis in August 2014 and then began to write greeting cards for her 4-year-old daughter, Brianna, marking everything from her first breakup to her wedding day. They are "this physical representation of this is all of the stuff I'm going to miss," she said. McManamy's memoir, Cards for Brianna: A Lifetime of Lessons and Love from a Dying Mother to Her Daughter, is set to be released in April.
