Charlene's Review:

If you know anyone that is facing breast cancer, run, do not walk, and purchase this for them!

Written by a survivor, using other survivors’ experience, and a healthy dose of humor, Ms. Young has written THE go-to book for breast cancer awareness. Anything, and everything, a patient needs to know is inside, and written in a direct, informative text, without the medical journal feel.

Beginning with "It took losing my breasts to find my voice," and with chapters covering everything from "Digesting your diagnosis," "This is your brain on chemo," to "Making cancer a positive life sentence," it guides every step of the cancer process. There is not enough positive I can say, except I plan on purchasing these and handing them out to local hospitals so that they may have this resource on hand.

5 out of 5 stars!
