Book Description

It is a book that deals with the social side of cancer, as a parent, a lover and a friend. It is a story of coping with uncertainty, the reactions of others and living with them too. It documents the total shock and utter fear that a diagnosis brings and the hopelessness of surrendering to a treatment that brings its own baggage yet ultimately insures life. It talks about confronting hair loss along with discovering the more covert assault on all things feminine. Yet at the very root of the book, ahead of the fear and anger, there is humour and laughter. Though the story of cancer has been told before, it has not been told like this"

2.0 out of 5 stars Great topic, but it is poorly written. January 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think the idea is wonderful and could be very helpful to others, but this book is not ready for prime time. It is littered with inappropriate use of punctuation, grammar mistakes and poor sentence construction which makes it difficult to read and enjoy. The writer shouldn't give up, but she needs a writing group for feedback, a grammar book and an editor to turn this great idea into a readable book.

3.0 out of 5 stars good book if one has similar cancer December 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This may be a great, inspiring read for someone diagnosed with breast cancer, or an individual close to such a patient. It has a happy ending and is rich in medical detail without being overly clinical. However, the pacing is extremely slow, weighed down by the mundaneness of a nice person's rather ordinary life.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's been there, done that. February 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose this book because I was diagnosed with breast cancer last week. I was looking for a story from someone who had been there, someone I could read about who had experienced already what my future will be.
This is the best, no nonsense, straight forward, humorous, painful account of the journey through the world of breast cancer that I have found.
I am recommending it to my mom, sister, and daughter so they can have a better sense of my journey that cancer has embarked me upon.
If you are among the 12 percent of women who will ride this train with the author and I, then I suggest you get a copy of this book before leaving the station.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Candid Sharing May 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yvonne is very candid in sharing her year of treatments. While what she shares is not news, it is her handling of it that makes it worth reading. If you haven't read anyone's account this is good place to start.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read. February 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a professional writer, but the book is readable. Touching to read how a young woman (with a young family) deals with a potentially life-threatening disease. I admire her courage in signing up for the clinical trial and sticking to the terms, even though it meant undergoing chemo. Frankly, I'm not sure I would have the guts!
