Overview

Do you want the raw, honest truth about dealing with breast cancer? This book tells all (and shows all – beware - middle aged pornography!)

CANCER! You must be scared sh*tless! (Pardon the swear word but you are reading the description a book with the F word in the title.) I know exactly how you feel!

Side note, not to ruin the ending, but I lived… or I wouldn’t have been able to write this book to help you LIVE through lite to medium breast cancer.

So, cry, make sure your will is up to date (you are probably not going to need it but it is part of the process), cry some more, tell your loved ones, cry some more... and then kick some cancer a$$...

Things that you will get out of this book:

· Chemo isn’t as scary as the movies make it

· Wearing wigs can be fun

· You ARE strong enough to handle this!

· Your relationships with everyone you know will become clearer, (Some people you think will be great will totally suck and others you never noticed will be superstars.)

· Step by step guidance on how to deal with everything from sex to wigs to fake eyelashes during treatments

· Tips on how to get your “vavoom” back after the doctors are done messing with you.

Bottom line, lite to medium breast cancer is pretty curable thanks to the gabillion dollars of research they have done and you or your loved one will probably be fine.

This is just a little lump in the road and I look forward to seeing you or your loved one turn out more fabulous than ever!!! Send me a picture! fckoffcancer@gmail.com

You’ve got this!

xoxo

This book is perfect for anyone who may want to understand more closely the ins and outs of a patient’s everyday life while undergoing breast cancer treatment. This book takes what most people see as a death sentence and turns it into a party at every turn. Full of humor, grit and spunk, this book is for anyone who wants to learn more about the breast cancer journey without running into medical jargon that’s almost impossible to understand; it’s real and relatable. Over the years, I’ve had two very close family members undergo treatment, and I only wish I had found this book sooner. Being part of a support system is difficult when you don’t know what it is the patient is going through or feeling. However, after reading this book I feel like I’m more prepared were it to happen again. Whether you’re a patient, or a loved one, I recommend checking out F Off, Cancer.

I lived it, then I read my wife's book three times. It is an inspiration for all who face adversity.
