I feel the need to point out that while this book is about a journey through and past breast cancer it is a book for any gender. Any male with a caring for women (friends, family) will benefit from the insights and strength displayed, not to mention take away important health lessons.
This is not the usual "I survived" book. Ms. Quinlan, from the first diagnosis, the characters she meets along her journey, and her sharing with the reader her informative medical experiences tells her story in a very personal and at times funny writing style that added to my enjoying her story.
Thank you Ms. Quinlan.
and was diagnosed with a recurrance of breast cancer in December 2007. The stress that
adds to one's life is unimaginable, especially during the holiday season!
Reading this book reminded me that there are many ways
to keep moving through the journey - and to experience some laughs along the way.
The book is a quick read; I couldn't put it down once I started reading. Casey pulls you right
in and before you know it, you're a friend along for the ride!
Her story provides a great lesson on why you need to to participate in YOUR story, YOUR Life!
Don't let anyone else lead the way for you, especially when it comes to your health.
I'm purchasing multiple copies to share with my breast cancer survivor friends!
Ms. Quinlan is an AWESOME CANCER SURVIVOR!
PS. I love this quote from Ms. Quinlan:
"I liken medical treatment to a car wash: would you like to go through the car wash inside the car, or strapped to the hood?
Ask questions, stay inside the car. Demand answers you can understand. Work with your medical team to find the right path for you. Don't ask questions, and you're strapped to the hood, with predictably unpleasant consequences!"
