Format: Paperback
"Facing Fear" is an excellent read for young women facing Breast Cancer. It is unique and refreshing because it is written from a young woman's perspective---and it reads like a novel! I recommend this book because it eloquently explains the emotional journey, the importance of support from friends and family, as well as the physical journey. It also gives some practical information about radiation and bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstructive surgery. While "Facing Fear" is not structured and written as a step-by-step guide, it is an excellent account of one woman's journey from diagnosis to completion of treatment. This book will give young women (and their family and friends) support and information about facing Breast Cancer. Bravo!

Format: Paperback
The author was very descriptive beginning with her early detection all the way through her reconstruction. She covered every angle of her ordeal, which I found fascinating and so easy to understand. Unlike reading a 'medical book', this book expresses the author's thoughts and emotions which I found very comforting. Any questions I had in my mind were answered in this book. I felt like it was written by me/for me. Even the time frame was identical. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough! I high recommend it not only for breast cancer victims but also for friends and family. It will help them understand our fears and the physical aspects of dealing with this disease.

Format: Paperback
This is a true life story told by a smart and lovely young woman who happens to be a friend of mine. Once I read the first page, I could not put this book down until I had finished it. I then ordered copies for my sisters and dearest female friends.

I had no idea until I recently reconnected with Nancy on Facebook, that she had gone through one of the most harrowing experiences a woman can face. Facing "Fear" is an understatement. I would describe Nancy's experience as a dreadful nightmare of unknowns that just WOULD NOT STOP for several years. Breast cancer -- it's only a risk for older women... right?

At the age of only 35, Nancy was a new mother who was enjoying her sweet baby and her marriage to a wonderful man. How could she have even dreamed that during a routine followup exam with her doctor, she would hear that he found a lump in one of her breasts he wanted "checked out." Being only 35, Nancy was not too concerned that this might be something more serious than a minor cyst. There was no history of cancer in her family and her risk factor was miniscule. Then came Nancy's very first mammogram, then an ultrasound, followed by the other tests that put Nancy on a journey of terrifying new experiences. Then, the devastating news... a diagnosis of breast cancer.

Nancy describes her fear and emotional ups and downs as she faced each new medical procedure and then, more devastating news. Nancy's honesty, her strong faith in God's love, her determination and courage will help anyone who may be facing this dreaded disease and all the unexpected turmoil it brings.
