From the Inside Flap
"This book is a fine resource for every doctor, patient, and family who has to confront the reality of breast cancer."
Bernie S. Siegel, M.D., Author of Love, Medicine, and Miracles
Attitudes about breast cancer diagnosis are changing, and women and their families are becoming more assertive about managing their disease. They know that more choices are available now than ever before, and they are willing to make them.
This book encourages you to take control. Cathy Hitchcock and Steve Austin, N.D., have written a book for women who are ready to actively participate in their diagnosis and treatment.
A husband and wife team, Hitchcock and Austin walk you step-by-step through each part of diagnosis, treatment (both conventional and alternative), and prevention (including prevention of a recurrence). With the help of a flow chart, they examine different diagnosis options. They also suggest questions to ask your doctor and offer checklists, summaries, and overviews.
Interwoven with all this information, Cathy shares her personal story as a breast cancer survivor. She describes her ordeal upon discovering the lump and the transitions she has gone through to live with the diagnosis in a life-affirming way. Unlike many other breast cancer patients, Cathy didnt simply accept the choices offered by medical doctors. Instead, with the help of her husband, she studied the research and made her own decisions about conventional and alternative treatments.

It offers a fair and critical look at conventional medicine,as well as other alternative treatments where some have merit and others - not so much. I like the fact that I do not have to begin reading the book from the beginning in order to understand it. I have jumped around all over the book - depending what I am ready to read and research on at any particular time. It is reader friendly without talking down to you. It just lays out other options for you to consider. This book has fostered a sense of empowerment for me and I intend to read the other books recommended in this book.
This is not a quack book as people are a little prejuditial about specialists when it comes to cancer. This book is written by a 2 person team: a is a licensed naturopathic physician and Professor of Nutrition at National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon; and his wife a patient, survivor, and owns her private counseling practice centered on women's issues. This unique perspective brings it home for me and the credentials of the authors are impotant to me as well. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for more information.
