Surprisingly, not what you think! 22 Nov. 2002
By Janet S Blaedel - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A sensitive, well edited and written series of vignettes by, for, and about women and cancer. Forty six women share their stories, addressing depression, reflection, inspiration, information, and retrospection of facing cancer. But it is more than another breast cancer book; it is a celebration of women and their wealth of responses to adversity. This is a must-read for any woman facing her own or a friend's cancer, or for any man who loves or cares for a woman facing a medical challenge.

Review of The Breast Cancer Book of Strength and Courage 21 Nov. 2002
By Peggy Shelby - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"The Breast Cancer Book of Strength and Courage" was a wonderful source of comfort and encouragement. Having been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I could truly relate to the feelings other women in the book experienced. I too had to make so many decisions in a short period of time. As I read the book, I realized how many other women had been in that same terrifying place, and how many women met the challenge of healing head on. Every woman's cancer is different, but the feelings that accompany the daignosis are the same. I truly appreciate the honesty and the willingness of all of the survivors who shared their stories. I would highly recommend the book to all women with breast cancer and to their families.

patient endorsed 17 Aug. 2011

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My sil has breast cancer and is undergoing chemo and radiation. I sent her this book as a thinking-of-you card. She normally doesn't like to read, but she called me almost immediately telling me how much the book meant to her.

Absolutely Amazing 8 Jun. 2012
By Urban Pharmer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It is a must have for everyone who is struggling to find peace through the process. Also an invaluable tool for anyone who is going through breast cancer or any struggle in general. Depression, anxiety, etc.. Just a wonderful book of strength written by an amazing woman and life saving physician.
I give this wonderful book to anyone I know who is newly diagnosed with BC. 18 April 2014
By M. Pribus - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Since it is out of print, I periodically troll here to have extra copies.

Disclosure: Although I have not had BC, I do have an essay in the book. For which I received two free copies, no pay. Most stories are from-the-heart pieces from women who have had BC.
