Margaret writes it like it is, or at least how her experience was. There is life the other side, although it's a rocky journey, but also a laugh out loud one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I needed 14 Sept. 2013
By Tough Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not the first book that I have read (or, I should say, tried to read) on the topic of breast cancer. However, it is the only one that I've finished. My previous reads just brought me to tears. That's not what I was looking for. Let Me Get This Off My Chest was exactly what I needed. I am 4 weeks post bi-lateral mastectomy. This book provided me with the information that I needed to feel somewhat normal. I can relate to the writer on almost every level. The subject matter is heavy, duh!, but was handled in a light-hearted manner. It's a quick, easy, and valuable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book! 25 Aug. 2013

This is a must read if you, like me, have had anyone close affected by cancer. You will laugh and cry at Margaret's first-hand experiences. Excellent book with a lot of insight, hope and wisdom.
5.0 out of 5 stars Easy, Fun Read on a Hard Subject 7 Oct. 2013
By Laureltn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Margaret's story struck a chord with me from the beginning. The book is written in a friendly, nonthreatening way that makes it perfect, in my very humble opinion, as a primer to somebody who's just gotten that call about "suspicious findings" on their mammogram. (I know -- we would have all studied harder had we known we were going to fail the test).

I was diagnosed the same day, almost, as one of my son's friend's mothers. She ended up needing chemo. I did not. We shopped for her wig long before she needed it, and Margaret's wig-party chapter brought it all back to me as if it were yesterday instead of 7 years ago.

I've often felt "guilty" that I "only" had DCIS. My stage 0 "practice cancer," as I called it, and she touches on that subject as well in a way that after all this time makes me realize that the emotions I have experienced are more common than I realized in the sisterhood of lumpectomy scars and radiation suntans.

My annual round of mammograms and oncology visits are in a few days, and of course I'll hold my breath until the technician makes eye contact and says, "Everything looks normal." Each year that passes, I get a little more confident, but recurrence is possible for any of us. Margaret's book reminds me every day is a gift, we're never 100% out of the woods, but whatever happens, I am a survivor.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fynny and Poignant, You'll Want to Keep Reading 17 May 2015
By Beverly Diehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Written by a two-time breast cancer warrior, this memoir is poignant and funny in turns. It seems to be largely lifted from a blog. which means short, easy to digest chapters.

It's a very frank, practical, funny look at how this disease effected one woman and her family. "So my all-purpose advice when a loved one receives an upsetting diagnosis or has faced the loss of someone dear to them,: at the very least, send a card.

Keep it simple and speak from the heart. Don't tell them you know what they're going through, or that it's all for the best, or it's part of God's plan, because they may end up wanting to hurt you."

If you are dealing with breast cancer, or know someone who is, I recommend this book as a great way to explore it from the inside.
5.0 out of 5 stars I was so happy after reading her book I reached out and send ... 7 Feb. 2016
By Teresa Blommers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
4 words NO women NEVER wants to hear, but so many do, "you have breast cancer* in that instant your life will never be the same again. So now what, there are acres and acres of books out there to choose from, I just wanted A book to figure out what's next and what are my options. Margaret Lesh walks you through her journey with compassion, tears and humor. I was so happy after reading her book I reached out and send her a message on FB and was invited to join a closed group of other women going through their own ups and downs and decision makings. If you only buy ONE book, let LMGTOMC be that book, and then join us :)
