Hearing these words from your doctor: YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER, sends one's brain into a tail-spin. This book gives greater meaning to what is ahead and how to handle it. It is written in clear terms, answering many questions that the patient (or the family of the patient) wants to learn. It is truly an instruction manual to guide the patient toward survivorship.

My mother-in-law was recently diagnosed, and this book was recommended to me to help understand the doctor and interpret what was going on. It was great to see in writing the things that doctor was saying. The book brought my family a small amount of peace-of-mind during a difficult time. I am happy to say the MIL is now living cancer free!

My daughter has just been diagnosed with breast cancer, a shocking thing to hear. Everything imaginable goes through ones mind and the first place one goes to learn more is the web. She was advised not to do that as there is more information than one needs to know and tends to escalate the fear of the dreaded word 'cancer'. This book is so well written and follows most everything she has been told by her doctors that it made me relax a little. I would recommend anyone to read this book.

I read this when I got my cancer diagnosis and again read parts as I proceeded from surgery through post-surgery. This book is up-to-date and really helped my husband and me to prepare for and get through these steps as well as to know what to ask the doctors along the way.
