While many of the individual stories are sad, taken as whole this is an ultimately positive book--Nash survives with her health and family intact and is spared harrowing chemo and further metastasizing. Her lessons range from "bad news does less damage when it's shared" to "caregivers are human," and are illustrated with deeply personal stories of sobbing telephone messages, family arguments, and never-ending streams of frozen casseroles. The last lesson, "make the experience matter," revolves around Nash's first breast-cancer walk as a survivor, though it could just as easily revolve around the writing of this book, as it is sure to make a welcome difference in the lives of countless women.« less
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 short book and it's absolutely wonderful. I felt like I was there experiencing everything along with the author. The writing is concise, descriptive and heartfelt. I highly recommend this book!
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.
