My husband bought me this book just after I had a bi-lateral mastectomy due to breast cancer. It gave me hope that my life could be normal again despite the loss of my breasts. That was ten years ago. We are still married and I am doing fine. Often, at my annual check-ups, the doctor or nurse practitioner will ask my advice on how to help their other patients and I always recommend this book. I keep an extra copy around to give to anyone who confides in me regarding their story of breast cancer and I wish everyone who has to go through breast cancer could read this book.
