Each October we see pink everywhere.  It is Breast Cancer Awareness month again.  

Thanks to early detection, there are many survivors, but unfortunately, everyone is not so lucky.  For that reason, the news that a mammogram has come back with an abnormality can be terrifying.  The repeat imaging can't come fast enough.    

Then comes a jumble of biopsies, discussion of treatment options, sharing the news, possible surgeries, and so much more.  This is just the start of the journey.  It is a lot to absorb, a lot to plan for, and a lot to live through.

This book is like a portable support group to help in the quiet alone times.  It has medical advice and information that women will want to know.  It also has honest, personal stories from women who have traveled a similar path.  If you have been diagnosed, or know somebody who has, this is a nice combination of medical and emotional support.

The book has nine chapters:

  1. First You Cry
  2. Building Your Healthcare Team
  3. Managing Your Support Team
  4. Think Positive During and After Treatment
  5. Living in the Cancer World and the Real World
  6. Healing Your Body and Soul
  7. A Beautiful Woman Emerges
  8. Your Amazing Journey
  9. Reflections on Living
