Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Breast cancer is identified by its stage, from zero to four. Writer Fox was diagnosed with DCIS, or ductal carcinoma in situ, stage 0 and considered the most curable. Yet women will experience the same fears and emotions as with any other breast cancer diagnosis and often more confusion and frustration as to what to do next. Fox's brief text should help those in a similar situation find answers and, more important, the right questions to pose to medical professionals.

    Must Read for All Women!

    Thank God I haven't dealt with breast cancer first hand but I definitely think this a book all women should read. It was very easy read -like talking to a girlfriend. It was about one persons experience and I know every experience is different but this book offered things to consider that you wouldn't think of if you were in the middle of it. You should read this if you or anyone close to you is diagnosed with breast cancer. I'm glad I read it so I have the information "just in case".
