    Makes you laugh when you feel like crying

    I loved this book, it had great tips and she had a wonderful sense of humor. It helped cheer me up and gave me hints that the doctors never tell you, only another survivor would know.

    This was purchased as a gift for my friend who was beginning radiation treatment for Paget's Disease of the Breast, a rare form of breast cancer. Here is her "thank you":

    It is the best reading I've done since my diagnosis; It is so thorough, and written in a way that does not make you feel sorry for yourself, but at the same time gives you permission to really feel the "pain" of being a cancer patient. Many of the feelings I've had over these past few weeks made me think I wasn't as strong as I should be; however, after reading most of the book last night, I realize that not only am I pretty normal in my feelings, it's also okay to let myself be taken care of by others both emotionally and physically for a little while, as this IS a big deal. What I realized the most is how very lucky I am ,and that is why I am feeling a little guilty about how "easy" I've got it compared to most. Having said that, I also realize it is okay to feel the loss and I look forward to the day when I can say "I'm a breast cancer SURVIVOR".

    This is a very, very helpful book !!

    My daughter gave this to me a few weeks after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have given away at least 10 of these books since then to newly diagnosed friends of friends....and they have all been very grateful and have used many of the practical tips in this wonderful book.

    'A must read for any woman'

    I recently completed Deborah A. Cohen's book about breast cancer, and I was blown away. Ms. Cohen has made a very important contribution to the woman's health field while fighting her own battle with breast cancer. I thought the tone of the book was non-threatening and engaging, and the content helpful, interesting, and empowering. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who has breast cancer, has a family member or friend with breast cancer, or simply wants to better understand the breast cancer experience.
