If you have cancer or know someone who does, this is a good book to read. It gives people hope and also explains to them each step in the process from diagnosis to remission or "cure". It is one woman's journey with breast cancer and how she survived.
This is a very moving account of one woman's ordeal with breast cancer. I read it in only a matter of hours; I was impressed with not only her courage and strength, but with the humor with which she dealt with cancer.
Whether you have cancer, know someone who does, or simply are interested in finding a cure, this is a great read on the subject.
