Fran takes you through her life with cancer. From being mis-diganosed to beating cancer, she gives us details of how she feels, and how she deals with it. I loved this book from start to finish!! She also makes you laugh. Reading this book, I felt like I was with her, holding her hand while she dealth with the pain. She gives us details, and that is what makes this book stronger.

I picked this book up at random, not even having been aware that Fran Drescher had written a book OR had had cancer. So i was immediately intrigued. I loved this book very much. It made me smile, it made me tear up a little & it made me happy because her story is so easy to relate to. Fran is so open in this book, not seeming to hold anything back and I found that although I am much younger, I have a ton in common with her. I found myself cheering for her when she finds out she is cancer free, crying with her when she received bad news. I was hooked from the get go. I'd recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of hers! :)

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. My attention was grabbed by the time I finished the first paragraph in the prologue. I laughed, cried, and became angry with Drescher through the course of the book. I recommend purchasing this book. Its a purchase that you won't regret.

When I picked out this book, I was thinking that it would be fun to read about Fran Drescher, since I loved her show, The Nanny. I thought it would be a light read, funny ¿ like her, and I would get to know the full story behind her cancer. I was right and I was wrong. It was fun to read about her as a real person, talking about a personal experience, very different from just watching her as a character on TV. But in some chapters, she got a little too personal about a couple relationships she had I expected her to focus more on her cancer than the people in her life. However, as the pages wore on and I got closer to the actual day of her surgery, I realized why she had went on and on about her relationships with her family, friends, and a couple men. They weren¿t just side notes in her life they played a role in the intense, emotional journey of her cancer. As a reader, one of the most important things Drescher tells you is that the longest part of her experience was really just getting diagnosed first. She went through nine doctors over two years, just to find out that her symptoms were linked to uterine cancer, not pre-menopause ¿ as the other eight doctors falsely suggested. And during those two long years, her friends, assistants, family, and her boyfriend went through every problem and worry with her. Each person was very important in encouraging, helping, and supporting Fran every step of the way. So, the histories she included about these people were not pointless, they helped you know exactly how she felt and how much she really appreciated every person that made her surgery ¿ before and after ¿ possible to survive. All in all, this book was a nice light read. I usually take my time when I read, but Cancer Schmancer spoke so well that I found myself speeding through it. Even though most chapters were not light and fuzzy, it was Fran¿s determination and wit that told me to read more.

I love her, this made me smile in parts just because of her sense of humor and attitude, she's a wonderful person.

Very human and realistic, she shares advice and helps us understand cancer with an optimistic view... and laughter of course! I recommend it to woman all age. This book is not only about cancer, it touches different aspects from a woman's life, I am 21 and definetly learned a lot from her experience.

I enjoyed Cancer Schmancer! Fran gives a prespective to all women old and young, that we are truly the only ones that know our bodies. She shows us to stand up to doctor's and tell them what you want them to do. Educate ourselves about women health topics. She is very open about everything and I amire that about her! It's an outstanding book!

Ms. Drescher's book contains an important message about taking charge of your health. Though it may not be a classic that will be studied in English Lit. for years to come, it is a very open account of a struggle to survive and heal, both physically and emotionally. Ms. Drescher is a highly talented woman who has entertained millions of people. She has the guts to let us in on her life's struggles and I can't imagine any woman not seeing many parallels between her own and Ms. Drescher's problems. As a member of the medical profession, I am well aware that mistakes are made. I was also the victim of a mistake and you would think that the people caring for me might be trying just a little harder, knowing I was one of them. But there are a lot of great health care professionals who really are helping people. We can't regard them as Gods and we can't just put everything in their hands. We have to take charge of our health care by being informed and making informed decisions. We have to advocate for ourselves and when we can't, we must have someone near us who can. That is the main message of this book. Because it is very readable and entertaining, (but I wouldn't call it hilarious, because that isn' the point), many women will be able to get the important message it contains.
