Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul: Stories to Inspire, Support and Heal (Chicken Soup for the Soul) Paperback – October 1, 2006
From Publishers Weekly
This addition to the popular Chicken Soup series should help anyone diagnosed with or undergoing treatment for breast cancer, as well as their close friends and family members. Divided into categories such as love, healing, challenge and courage, the wide-ranging first-person accounts set a positive but realistic tone. Donna St. Jean Conti describes how a saleswoman, seeing Conti's scar from a mastectomy, whispered that she had found a lump in her breast and asked her for advice on what to do. Beverly Vote writes about the difficult problem of holding on to her sense of herself as a woman after undergoing a mastectomy and of how her husband's devotion helped her. In the face of her beloved sister Meemee's diagnosis, Barbara Curtis dealt with her fears by cooking and freezing healing foods for Meemee during her treatment (Curtis shares a recipe for Chemo Popsicles to fight nausea). Jennie Nash details how difficult it was to handle the worry about who would raise her children if she died. The editors touch all bases by including a useful account of a male breast cancer survivor. B&w drawings. (Oct.)

I would certainly order from this distributor again.
As for the book, if you have breast cancer, I highly recommend you read it. It is not only uplifting but also makes one know they are not alone.

You would be hard pressed to find anyone not touched by in some way by the insidious disease of Breast Cancer, myself included. I have lost two friends and have many more that have been diagnosed with it or know someone else who has. Chicken Soup For The Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul is a collection of inspiring stories. They offer comfort and encouragement to both the person fighting to survive and beat this terrible disease and those that love and help care for them.
As I read these stories I was in awe of the strength and determination of the storytellers and pray that I display the fighting spirit that they have. As I said I have many who have known the fear felt when the doctor looks at you and tells you you have breast cancer. I have already purchased 3 copies of this book for my friends still undergoing treatment and 2 more for the families of the two I lost over the last year. You will find these stories lifting your spirits whether you know someone fighting for their life or are doing so yourself. If you are feeling you are alone in your fight pick up a copy today and light a spark in the darkness and you will notice the twinkling of hundreds of other lights. Behind each light is another soul reaching out to bring you comfort and offer you a hand to remind you that you are not alone and encourage you along your way.
A Chicken Soup Book I had managed to miss and am so glad the Publishers offered it for review through NetGalley and I was approved to review it for them. Thank you. I enjoyed Chicken Soup For The breast Cancer Survivor's Soul tremendously. As always this is a quality book.
