Sickens me to the core to think there are many of us but this book allows me to grieve without reserve about this disease. It allows me something i rarely do, self pity and from that I've been able to weed out the emotions that cause harm and grow the emotions that will bring strength. This is a fight. Some fight for a long while others lose their battle. This book lets us all know no matter how you fight, just keep fighting. Don't feed the disease, feed your soul. Give your heart strength for the long battle. No matter how many supporters you have, you are in the center of the biggest battle ever fought. Thank you is not enough gratitude to the author and those who bravely shared their stories for the rest of us.

I gave this book to my sister just before she had a mastectomy and she was very appreciative. After surgery, she said she wanted to keep it on hand for reference and inspiritation. Easy to read and helpful.

As a recent inductee into the Breast Cancer Club, I have been on information and medical treatment overload. When I was home alone, I found myself feeling sorry for myself and asking the old 'why me' question. I don't personally know anyone with breast cancer, so I didn't have anyone to exchange stories and get advice from. I knew I needed something uplifting to get me out of this funk and to help me heal in a positive manner.

I have read several Chicken Soup books on other subjects, so I searched for one on the subject of breast cancer and found this gem. I ordered it via Amazon prime and received it a couple of days later just before my radiation treatments began. Unlike all the medical books I've been studying, this book provides stories about real life women who are walking down the same path as I am. I laughed, I cried, and I dog-eared some of the stories to read again another day. It made me realize that I'm not alone with my feelings and reinforced the idea that 'this too shall pass'.

My heart goes out to anyone suffering from breast or any other form of cancer and I wish you peace, happiness and health.

Beautifully written from her heart and soul. The author of this story (I Miss My Breasts) is one of the strongest persons I know and I am honored to call her a friend. She knows from real life experiences how important support is to cancer survivors and she helped make my own cancer journey a little less scary. I look forward to reading the book she is currently writing and am happy she has found her "bliss" with Pete and her new career as a writer. Although I am not a breast cancer survivor (colon cancer survivor), I found all of the stories in this book to be relevant to my life at the time of my treatment and to my life now. Thanks to all who contributed their stories - they were all touching.

Do not hesitate to purchase this book just because you are not a breast cancer survivor. The stories are all relevant and helpful to any cancer survivor.

When it comes to books such as Chicken Soup for the Soul I am a big fan. I have had the pleasure of reading various topics over the years and find this book very inspiring. Every story can touch you in one way or another, help you to be more understanding of what a person may be going through ,and find out that whatever the emotions are, it's perfectly normal. One particular author of " I Miss My Breasts" Linda Fiorenzano;s story may have touched me a little more. having known her most of her life I find her story very moving. I learned something I never knew through her story and also learned how she coped, found love and continued to grow. This is a must read book for all and I assure you it will touch you.

Now for those of us who have either gone through the journey of breast cancer ourselves or with our family and friends, we can have a lil help on the path. Chicken Soup for the Soul has put out Hope & Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey. It is a perfect lil book to help when the path gets too bumpy. It is there step by step as we all experience the pain then start getting up and getting to work. Gathering your doctors and family support, educating yourself as to what is to come and then living and surviving this horrible ordeal. It finishes up as you heal body and soul as we all must do.

I am so proud of the family and friends that have made this journey. They had to fight and fight hard. But to have them here with me is amazing. I have been blessed to have survivors around me. I wish that I had this book to share with them at that time of their lives. Thanks to Chicken Soup for the Soul for sharing with me too. It is an honor to work with them.

Just a couple of months ago my daughter who is 41 let my wife an I know she has breast cancer. I was stunned and I really did not know that much about breast cancer. So I bought this to bring myself up to speed and maybe there would be something helpful for my daughter. Well she just finished it. I haven't got the chance to read it yet. She said she found a lot of useful info. in the book I will revise this after I read the book and let you know what I think but from her we it a 4

I think that this is a wonderful book. It really gives you a sense of Hope and just a bit relaxing when you read it. I read a bit of this book before I sent it off to a friend who's mother was recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I do not regret this purchase. It is something that I hope they will all read together and find a little sense of hope and faith while going through this journey of pain. Very happy with it. And I hope they are too! The packaging wasn't too bad. I would recond a hard wrapped package though, because the corner of the book in the soft bubble envelope that it was sent in, was bent up.
