Hi! I’m Gila Pfeffer (rhymes with Mila) and I’m an American writer, blogger and content creator raising 4 teenagers in the UK. I write relatable stories about life with teens and, as an 11 year breast cancer pre-vivor and survivor, I also shed some light on what it was like to undergo breast cancer treatment with 4 young children. Spoiler alert: it was really hard. But it gave me invaluable perspective and a humor that I infuse into whatever I write.
I’m a staunch advocate for breast cancer awareness and prevention so if you’d like a monthly reminder to check yourself, please follow me on Instagram and look out for my “Feel It On The First” posts at the start of each month.
An essay I wrote about life with teens will be published in the upcoming anthology by a NYT best selling author. The book, I Just Want to Hang Out With You, due out on August 25, 2020.
I’ve been published on the parenting websites Grown and Flown as well as Sammiches & Psych Meds and New York Times Parenting. My work has appeared on The Girlfriend and It’s Momtastic and my Tweets have been featured on Buzzfeed, Huffpost and Today Parents. Connect with me on social media:

I’m currently at work on a memoir about the challenges I’ve survived including my unusual breast cancer story which, if I get it just right, will make readers laugh, cry and immediately schedule a mammogram.
