This humerous take on a journey through breast cancer is a must read for anyone going through it, been through it or knows someone going through it.

There are a lot of books available about breast cancer but none as personal and intimate as Genae Girard's "Off The Rack". Ms. Girard takes readers on her unexpected journey with the "alien" that has entered her thirty- something year old body without invitation. With heart and humor, Ms. Girard shares with us very personal feelings about her diagnosis, treatment and reconstruction. Until I read this book I had no idea what breast cancer patients experience. Though no one can fully understand without walking in their shoes, I certainly understand a lot more after reading this book.

I have had the pleasure of meeting the author and must say that the book is just as dynamic as she is. Her book is written in a conversational manner and speaks to everyone who has or has had breast cancer. It is realistic, uplifting and such a change from much of what is on the market these days. You will finish the book and want more of the humor and positive attitude. I just hope she keeps writing with this type of style....refreshing and magnetic. Treat yourself to her words and philosophy. You won't be disappointed!

I was Dx 10/01/10. I was lost. Everything I read on the internet was just as depressing as my new news. I cant even remember how many books I purchased, but what I can remember is that they all made me more scared then informed... Then I found "Beyond The Boobie Trap" and I knew things were going to be okay. I laughed so hard that I cried (a GOOD cry). I recently went back a re-read the book, now that treatment is over and I am trying to get back to "normal" and Genae was sooooo right in every thought. This booked helped me through a lot! Thank you Ms. Genae!

Off the Rack chronicles the life of a young, single, breast cancer survivor. Genae speaks candidly in her book and lets the truth be her guide. I read this book before I had a double mastectomy and it was extrememly helpful in building my confidence to move forward. This is a must Read for anyone in the battle of their life and this is not a depressing cancer book, you will be uplifted and filled with HOPE.

Please, please, please give this book to anyone who has been just diagnosed, going through treatment, done with treatment, survivor, or knows someone who has been diagnosed and would like an inside scoop what they're going through. There is nothing about breast cancer on the market like this. I am a big fan!
How do I know?? Been there done that. 1 in 8 women will be there, 240,000 will be under the age of 40. Every 13 minutes a woman in the US hears those dreadful words "you have cancer" So we need to press on and I promise you "OFF THE RACK" should be read by all.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June of 2010 at the age of 39. I knew I needed to read something by a woman who had been through this. I started searching on here and up pops Off the Rack. It was the first book I purchased post diagnosis. Genae is so funny and honest. It is a quick, easy read. I will buy this book again for any women I know dealing with a new diagnosis.
