Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This addition to the popular Chicken Soup series should help anyone diagnosed with or undergoing treatment for breast cancer, as well as their close friends and family members. Divided into categories such as love, healing, challenge and courage, the wide-ranging first-person accounts set a positive but realistic tone. Donna St. Jean Conti describes how a saleswoman, seeing Conti's scar from a mastectomy, whispered that she had found a lump in her breast and asked her for advice on what to do. Beverly Vote writes about the difficult problem of holding on to her sense of herself as a woman after undergoing a mastectomy and of how her husband's devotion helped her. In the face of her beloved sister Meemee's diagnosis, Barbara Curtis dealt with her fears by cooking and freezing healing foods for Meemee during her treatment (Curtis shares a recipe for Chemo Popsicles to fight nausea). Jennie Nash details how difficult it was to handle the worry about who would raise her children if she died. The editors touch all bases by including a useful account of a male breast cancer survivor. B&w drawings. (Oct.)

I bought this book several months after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a comfort for me to read about other experiences that were positive. It is a club that nobody wants to belong to but...it is a club filled with wonderful people.

Beautiful collection of stories that will make you smile, and bathe you in hope. Easy reading for when you feel like you can only manage a few pages at a time. If you are going through treatments or recovering from surgery, this book will feel like a lifesaver for you!

Format: Paperback
Co-written by breast cancer survivor Mary Olsen Kelly and bestselling "Chicken Soup for the Soul" authors Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul is an inspirational anthology of brief true stories about breast cancer patients and their family members dealing with chemotherapy, surgery, and side effects one day at a time. Each tale is only a couple pages long, but all nurture the healing power of optimism. A handful of black-and-white cartoons intersperse this heartwarming collection.

I really enjoy this book as I am a Breast Cancer Survivor myself. The stories of courage and hope are just amazing. Many of the stories help one to keep moving on and smiling through this journey. My support group is called Healing with Hope and this book offers just that. The stories are so positive and you always realize that someone else has had a more difficult time than you. The sun is shining for the many survivor's of this terrible disease. Some stories make you laugh and some make you cry, but we have all come through this with a fighting spirit and a strong determination to stay healthy and support others who are fighting this battle. All of the series of the Chicken Soup books are inspiring and uplifting.

As a breast cancer survivor, I can relate to some of the stories. Cancer seems to bring out the good in everyone regardless of whether you are the patient, relative or friend of the patient, or medical staff treating the patient. These stories made me laugh, cry and reflect on my own survivorship.

I purchased Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor just because I purchase anything and everything related to Breast Cancer as I am a survivor.... Was I surprised and pleased at the quality of material included in this book. I read a story a day, allowing myself to ponder and really, really think about them. Good job, Chicken Soup....A excellent book to read....for survivors and co-survivors alike.

Reviewed by Cherie Fisher for Reader Views (11/06)

I started reading the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series several years ago and have always been amazed and inspired at the wonderful stories in them. "Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul" does not disappoint. Right after I agreed to review this book I had my annual physical, which included a breast exam. The doctor found nine lumps in my breasts and scheduled me for a mammogram and sonogram. This book arrived on the day that I had the tests. I began reading it not knowing what the tests were going to turn up and immediately found myself in awe of the people that faced this disease, some winning, some not, but all discovering that the most important thing in life is to live each day as if it were your last--simple advice, yet so hard to follow when we are caught up in the everyday problems and rat-race in our lives.

The pages of "Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul" are full of stories about love, families, and laughter and the incredible support that breast cancer survivors give each other. The book is perfect for a person diagnosed with breast cancer and survivors of breast cancer and their families and friends. Many of the survivors look back on their experience with cancer as a gift because they learned what is truly important in life during their treatment and recovery time. Oftentimes, we feel so helpless when a loved one is facing tough times and there are also many wonderful suggestions for things that can be done to help.

I was also amazed at the bond that forms between women, and more increasingly men, who have breast cancer. They join support groups, educate each other about treatment and rally around people who are trying to make it through treatment and recovery.
