From Publishers Weekly
Maisano, founder of the No Surrender Breast Cancer Foundation, examines the delicate personal side of reconnecting after the trauma of breast cancer. Writing in a straightforward, conversational style, Maisano leverages her hard-won firsthand knowledge to create an informative and supportive guide for women in the process of reclaiming their sexuality, post-treatment. Presented in two parts, the book begins with issues related to healing the body and mind. As cancer survivors shift from fighting for their lives to planning for the future, Maisano illustrates the pros and cons of treatment options. A two-time breast cancer survivor herself, she assembles personal stories and explains complex procedures with welcome frankness and humor: "All this will mean a farewell to the ovaries and a baptism by hot flash into the world of sudden menopause." In Part Two, the author takes a close look at sexuality and intimacy after treatment, offering up-to-date information, nonjudgmental support, and healing exercises for women as they recover in their own unique ways and face individual challenges on the road to health. This book will be vital to women who find themselves in the process of healing, and to all the people who care for them.

This book is very informative by author Gina Maisano, a two-time breast cancer survivor. The first part of the book is very helpful for those who have just been diagnosed. The second part is for those who have beaten the beast that is breast cancer and where they go from there...what they need to do to get back their lives.
Maisano has a very easy writing style. It is like talking to a friend. Gina Maisano also has a non-profit foundation that helps thousands of women. Her sight is called "No Surrender Breast Cancer" and her "sisters" (fellow patients) are called her angel warriors. I highly recommend this book for all of those young women who have fought and won over cancer.
