I was given this book to read and review after I was halfway through my treatment. After going through it, I found that it discussed a lot of the pre-testing that takes place. I also found out that some of the symptoms I had were very common, something I was going to talk with my doctor about. I had skated through the dark with my breast cancer and this book lit up a lot of things for me, I wished someone had given it to me when I was diagnosed. I highly recommend it! Don't go into treatment in the dark!
