Who Wouldn't Want a Survivor's Guide for the Breast Cancer Journey? Who here has a pocket folder full of information and notes that you put together when you were first diagnosed with breast cancer? A 3-ring binder? A manilla folder hanging in a Pendaflex file? Well, take a look at this ... A Survivor s Guide for the Breast Cancer Journey, by Kim Regenhard, was released in April 2008. The journal, from RiverStone Journals, and in collaboration with Day-Timer, is specifically intended to help women newly diagnosed with breast cancer understand, organize, plan and record their journey from diagnosis through recovery. Kim herself was diagnosed in 1998, treated with a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. Upon her recovery, she took it upon herself to develop a tool that will help others navigate the physical and emotional course of cancer. I felt compelled to create a handbook that would make the battle with cancer less burdensome for those diagnosed, said Kim. This beautiful hard cover faux suede, by the way feels awesome to someone who is tactile like myself, spiral bound book 86 pages in total also features beautifully photographed survivors. Kim worked with The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation as well, to include information pertinent to survivors including terminology and medical explanations of pathology and treatment options. This would make a great gift for anyone newly diagnosed. Yup, wish I had one when I was first told I had cancer. Absolutely, indeed! This journal is a gift from Kim to you ... a gift from someone who has walked and survived to someone taking her first steps. --Pink Ribbon Review

Ooh La La. Called "A Survivor's Guide for the Breast Cancer Journey" this product is seriously pretty. RiverStone Journals partnered with Day-Timers, Inc. to create the journal, and the production quality is superb. The front cover feels like suede and is embossed with an elegant "Courage and Strength" logo that is echoed throughout the binder. The paper, the fonts, the color scheme...yumm. There are eight tabbed dividers. Some of the sections represent a phase of the journey; for example, "Understanding Your Diagnosis." Within that section you will find: A small pocket to hold slips of paper Informational text designed to help you understand your pathology report coupled with spaces for notes Questions to ask Tips from Survivors Journaling pages with a few prompts A list of resources No planner / organizer is perfect for everyone. Some folks are just as happy with a few file folders and a spiral notebook. But if you are the type that (a) drools over beautiful journals or (b) doesn't get the appeal of digital scrapbooking because you don't get to fondle paper or (c) is well aware that Kate Spade sells stationery - then this planner has you written all over it! --Jayne's Breast Cancer Blog

About the Author

Kim Regenhard was a successful executive in a large corporation, happily married, and mother of a young child when, in the spring of 1998, she discovered a lump in her breast. When tests confirmed the lump as cancerous, Kim felt her world had been turned upside down.

Guided by the experience of a friend who had survivored breast cancer, Kim began the task of learning about breast cancer, breast cancer treatments, and what she might expect on the road ahead. It was a process that would ultimately lead to starting a new business, RiverStone Journals, and creating an organizer and journal for women newly diagnosed with cancer

"As I reflected on my own needs during my cancer experience, and listened to other breast cancer survivors, I became convinced that what cancer patients need is a practical tool to guide them step-by-step through the cancer journey," said Kim.
A Survivor's Guide for the Breast Cancer Journey was born out of that heart-felt conviction."

Now cancer free, Kim manages the strategic aspects and day-to-day operations of RiverStone Journals and speaks at events related to breast cancer and other women's issues.

I gave A Survivor's Guide to my friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and she said it was the most useful gift she had ever received. She said the book was informative and positive when she felt overwhelmed and afraid. She said the author thought of everything and she was so appreciative for the step by step guide that kept her calm during her treatment and made her optimistic about becoming well. Pam C.

I wish I had this when I was diagnosed with breast cancer! It is a tool to help keep track of the journey and help organize the details. It also includes the advice of other survivors and experts in the field. Also it is a classic and a beautiful item to carry along the way

I gave this to a newly diagnosed friend and she commented that this was exactly what she had been searching for. This journal gave her some sense of organization to an uncontrollable event in her life. My friend shared it with her doctor and her doctor, already familiar with the journal, encouraged her to use it. Thank you Kim Regenhard for turning a negative experience into a positive way to help others!
