This is the story of my 1998 breast cancer and mastectomy (with no reconstruction). The book deals primarily with the surprising emotional benefits I gained. The five appendices offer a wealth of practical information on risk factors for breast cancer, ways to help prevent it, and much more. "Beautiful, moving, informative, uplifting." "A terrific read – well-written, frank, and honest."
