B.O.O.B.S. by Ann Kempner Fisher
Book DescriptionB.O.O.B.S. (A Bunch Of Outrageous Breast-Cancer Survivors) is a collection of personal stories by ten courageous women about how they are living with breast cancer, not dying from it. Written with humor, insight, raw emotion, and honesty, each story details one woman's personal experience -- from the shocking diagnosis to surgery and beyond -- and the effect breast cancer has had on her and the people in her life -- husband or lover, family, and friends. These women are a new breed of cancer survivors. Resourceful and proactive, many of them challenged current medical practices or combined alternative treatments with conventional ones. Brought together by The Wellness Center, a program devoted to providing cost-free psychological support to cancer patients and their loved ones, the contributors all believe strongly in the healing power of group therapy and peer sharing. In fact, several of them have become patient advocates and spokeswomen in a quest to make a difference in the lives of other women facing this frightening disease. B.O.O.B.S. offers invaluable information about the latest cancer treatments as well as the benefit of peer support. Every year more than 200,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Most have no genetic or other known risk factors and are therefore blindsided by the diagnosis. The emotional turmoil that results can be devastating, and B.O.O.B.S. is a book that can give women hope to beat this disease. It will also help family members and friends of survivors, women who are at risk and clinicians who treat breast-cancer patients.
