Wide Angle Lunch: Deb Ebenstein

Deb Ebenstein

Mani Pedi STAT


Diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease at age 16, Deb Ebenstein underwent surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment during the years of prom, pimples, and SATs.  At 28 she tackled a rare blood condition that led to months of hospitalization, surgery, and more treatment.  And then, at 33, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, eight weeks after the birth of her son. In her first book, Mani Pedi STAT, Ebenstein’s honest and unfiltered account of her experience with serious illness and recovery reveals her prescription for survival: girlfriends, family, and an unapologetic devotion to the mani-pedi (and other seemingly trivial indulgences).

Ebenstein is a Jersey girl turned wife, mother, therapist, and writer.  She is a graduate of Rutgers College and received her Masters in Social Work from Yeshiva University.  She lives in Westchester County, New York with her husband and two children.
