I found this book very helpful. I am currently going through treatment for breast cancer. I found the stories to be informative and encouraging. They don't sugar coat their experiences. They are honest about the ups and the downs. It was helpful to me to hear the war stories of a group of survivors.However, if you are looking for survivor stories because you are currently going through treatment or know someone who is there are few things to consider before reading this book.This is not a book about young women diagnosed with breast cancer. The youngest age at diagnoses is 45. The majority of these women have a particular type of breast cancer: ductal carcinoma. Many, perhaps all of them, are involved with one particular support group: The Wellness Community. If you are looking for stories/experiences that fit certain parameters, this might not be the book for you. However, the stories are poignant. Regardless of the type of cancer, some of the challenges, fears and frustrations are the same. If you are looking for stories of courage, told with honesty and humor then this is a good read for you.
