Overview

Diane Craig Chechik’s bold, courageous second book, "There's Nothing Like A Breast," continues from where her first, chilling book, "Journey To Justice," left off. This is revelatory insight into extraordinary emotional, physical and sexual challenges -- the result of a radical mastectomy. In candid, brutally honest terms, Diane takes the reader through every sensual and scary moment with vivid descriptions, a little self-deprecatory humor and, above all, a true fight for survival to live a "normal" life under anything-but-normal circumstances.

Editorial Reviews

Doug Moe
"The writer Shelby Foote once remarked that survival is triumph enough. Of course, he never met Diane Craig Chechik. If anyone ever had a right to feel good just being around, it is Chechik...she is much more than a survivor."
Jackie Marchard
"Chechik is tough, smart, and brassy. She has written two books that, like her, pull no punches. She commands no less attention as a teller of a modern-day medical horror story."
Kathleen Poorman
"Must reading for women of all ages. The story is raw, but told with a pureness of truth for the situation. [These books] give insight how to handle the situation and the importance of early detection."
Marjorie North
"Her books are must-reads for everyone...a woman of rare courage, a passion for life, and a 'not me, you don't' attitude toward justice."
Unknown Author
"What Chechik shares is a stunning insight for other women."
