This is the perfect book for a new and overwhelmed breast cancer patient. It provides just enough information to help decipher the language of breast cancer and identifies valuable resources where someone can dig deeper where necessary. I love the format of serving as a workbook to keep track of important dates, information, and contact info. The tips throughout the book, including those from patients/survivors are fabulous. When first diagnosed, patients can feel like they've been thrown into a tornado. This book will help them keep focused on the goal: survival.
