When my sister first was diagnosed with cancer, I bought her a book beacuse I felt so helpless, but the book didn't address any of her real concerns. How I wish this book was in print at that time!
Beauty Pearls for Chemo Girls is a very practical and helpful guide to almost anything a woman has a difficult time with during chemo: how to pick out the best wig, how to tastefully hide the fact that your eyebrows and eyelashes are gone, foods that might sit better in your stomach during chemo...THIS book has it all. There's even a section that deals with spirituality. I LOVE that the author discusses her own experiences, but the book's focus isn't on herself. The focus is on all of the FANTASTIC, famous contributors in every field and their expert advice: Oribe, Oscar Blandi, etc..., all providing very useful and practical information. I LOVED this book and believe it will truly assist many women out there going through one of the worst times in their lives! Kudos to the authors for doing such a splendid job!

Many of our bodies just can't stand up to the environmental toxins, chemical additives, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and genetic modifications in the food and water supply these days. So lots and lots of us are getting cancer, which is good for Big Pharma profits but very bad for us! As the American Health Care landscape changes, alternative solutions, including Insulin Potentiation Therapy, which utilizes 1/10 the amount of chemo medicine much more effectively, will hopefully be encouraged and covered by insurance, but for now, we are stuck with the status quo solutions that mainstream Doctors endorse and our insurance will cover, which usually means chemotherapy in large doses. Hopefully we will look back, 10 years from now, and realize how barbaric chemotherapy really is, at least the way it is administered today, but it's what we've got to deal with, and our positive attitude toward our own healing protocol is key.

"Beauty Pearls for Chemo Girls" is a precious gift of the heart to women everywhere. Authors Marybeth Maida and Debbie Kiederer have rallied together a powerful group consciousness for us to plug into, with a network of support from celebrities, beauty, fashion, health, psychological and spiritual experts as well as other women facing this extreme challenge, and those who have emerged triumphant and whole from the ordeal. Imparting pearls of wisdom is what this book is all about, and it addresses this journey of healing in such a comprehensive way, that pretty much every aspect of what we could possibly face is covered with excellent recommendations.

I recently gave a speech on alternative cancer cures at a University and when I asked these young people how many of them knew someone who had been affected by cancer, every hand went up.

This book is straight to the point from survivors that are in the beauty consulting (in some way) world. I love the different view points. The only negative I had is that they absolutely assume you will wear a wig and talk about that at great length. I'm a breast cancer survivor NOT wearing a wig. Scarfs, hats, and sometimes just bald are my choice of covering.

Good tips for makeup, breakouts and what to do when your hair starts growing in. I have referred it to several people.

An excellent book for anyone who has breast cancer. It should be read as soon as they are diagnosed. It should also be read by relatives and close friends. Very informative and easy to read. Has a great deal of useful information.

I had two friends going through chemo and I bought the books for them. It helped them so much and answered so many questions they had. They saw they weren't going through this alone. They really appreciated having the books.

I am ordering these books to share with other women that are facing breast cancer. This book helped me, and I want to help other women. This is a very good book to answer the questions that women need to know.
