Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This wide-ranging anthology from the Healing Project provides answers to practically anyone wondering What now? in the face of a breast cancer diagnosis. Patients, family and friends will find helpful information on everything from the emotional aspects of diagnosis and treatment to explanations of the different types of breast cancer. Boxes scattered throughout offer particularly good clinical information by Dr. Stephanie Bernik on everything from choosing a surgeon to the effect of chemotherapy on fertility. The breaking up of this information among personal essays, poems and meditations by patients and family members makes it easy to digest. While many writers tell of their shock and dismay at their diagnosis, there are more than a few wry laughs, too. Gayle Tanber muses on an unexpected discovery: I had no idea so many friends had access to pot, which they offered to ease the side effects of chemotherapy. Debra LaChance created the Healing Project to provide a format for connecting people diagnosed with different diseases. Judged by that yardstick, this worthy collection succeeds very well. Photos.

By Jerry Autry on September 6, 2010
Format: Paperback
This is such a wonderfully inspirational book and some of the best writing I've ever read. Women sharing their trials, tribulations, heartbreak, and triumph is merely a small part of it. I read the book in one sitting and then for weeks, have been going back and rereading. Thanks to all these wonderfully brave survivors of this insideous disease and thanks for teaching me about life. I plan to buy several copy with an end to passing it to those who need a boost. This book is like a rocket ship. Gun Totin' Chaplain

My husband bought the book for me....and I thought, why do I want to read other people's miserable stories about breast cancer?
Well, finally, I had the courage to open it up. I love this book. I am not alone. Thank you to the beautiful, brave men and women who wrote it. It has helped me through my journey.
