"Sometimes all one needs is a chat with someone who has been there and done that--twice! Based on Lesh's blog posts, this book is a solid fit for patient health collections." Bette-Lee Fox 09/01/2013
Lesh does a wonderful job in taking us along on her journey. The quotes and tips throughout the book are a wonderful addition to her story. I found this book easy to follow and her story was so interesting, I was encouraged to keep reading. I would recommend this book to survivors and supporters alike.

Let Me Get This Off My Chest provides an entertaining read bound to assist others going through breast cancer, both women and their loved ones.
Zachary Fennel, The Mobility ResourceMargaret Lesh used her first-hand experience to help readers understand what it's like to deal with breast cancer, from two rounds of diagnoses to treatments and post-ops ...excellent information about the cancer treatment process, hospital visits, and post-op care in addition to details of a more intimate nature, what the medications did to her body and the unspeakable fear that she felt throughout her ordeal ...highly recommended for anyone who has or has had cancer and who wants a non-clinical, moving account written by someone who knows first-hand what it's like.

From the Author
If you are a woman going through breast cancer treatment or have already gone through it, please feel free to request to be added to Getting This Off Our Chests: A Breast Cancer Support Group on Facebook. This group was recently started by my friend and fellow cancer survivor Kayte and me. We've both undergone bilateral mastectomies and wanted to have a private forum for women to connect and feel free to share with each other in a supportive, friendly community.
