I Have Cancer, but We Still Need Milk: An Inspirational Memoir of One Woman's Endurance, Faith, and Hope in Her Fight for Lifeby Shannon Buttram, Sheila Cragg (Designed by)
Shannon Buttram was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer when she was thirty-eight years old. She expected to experience the standard treatments for her cancer through chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and finally remission. But her life took a different turn. After completing her first round of treatment, she endured a second diagnosis of cancer, which led to a bilateral mastectomy, followed by a metastatic tumor diagnosis, making her cancer stage IV. She endured more chemotherapy, radiation, and even sudden death, from which she was miraculously revived. As you navigate through her story you will learn even more of what she endured in the course of her fight against cancer. Traveling beyond the borders of fighting cancer, Shannon's inspiring and candid story provides the ingredients for ultimate survival in an unrelenting battle...compassion, faith, hope, humor, and strength. Her Helps Section provides insights relating to the affects cancer has on our spouse, children, friends, and family.
She also covers how to choose and communicate with medical providers, deal with insurance, disability, and find resources for support.
