Aniko Galambos, herself a breast cancer surviror, takes us on a lyrical journey through the experiences of twelve women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. These women come from different backgrounds; some live in cities, others in small towns; they are from different races, religions and occupations; some were diagnosed thrity years ago and others only recently.
For women who have just been diagnosed, this book bears witness to the fact that women who get breast cancer live -- ten, twenty, thirty years. For women who are past the shock of the initial diagnosis and are struggling to find balance in their lives and hope for the future, these stories show how others have coped with identity crises, carreer changes, tests of faith, non-supportive partners and other challenges.
This book is an invaluable resource for women with breast cancer and for anyone whose life has been touched by this disease. The common women's stories featured in An Unexpected Journey: Women's Voice of Hope After Breast Cancer are anything by common!
