The thirty authors who tell their stories here are members of the Bay Area Young Survivors (BAYS). BAYS is a support and action group for young women in the San Francisco Bay Area who are living with breast cancer and were diagnosed before the age of forty-five. The goal of BAYS is to break the isolation of living with breast cancer, by providing a community built on compassion, understanding, hope, and inspiration. For more, visit www.baysnet.org

I received this book on Kindle as a gift from a friend of mine who had breast cancer, and blogged about it regularly. Even though I followed my friend's blog regularly and we are very close (from online), I realized while reading these chapters how diverse and multidimensional the experience of having breast cancer can be. It seems obvious that each woman would experience it as uniquely as her own self and circumstances, but it is difficult for someone who hasn't lived through it to see all the different dimensions and angles of it, and this book helped me see that. It also made me understand why breast cancer isn't just something you can have, treat, then move on.
It feels like a book every woman should read, because even though it is about cancer, it is also very much about being a woman, and to be honest, aren't we all afraid we might go through this (or at least someone dear to us) every day? I can also imagine it benefiting people who care for others going through breast cancer.
