Buy this book if you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, it will give you a wealth of information, advice, tips and empathy and you will be better prepared for the journey ahead. Buy this book if you know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  It will help you understand the disease and treatments, and better prepare you to be a strong supporter. When a dear friend was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I felt helpless, inadequate and very lacking in knowledge about this frightening disease. I trawled the Internet and bookstores for information, for both myself and toy share with my friend. The books I found either offered clinical advice in what amounted to little better than boring text book format, or were overly religious and spiritual in nature. I was never so thankful for a dentist's office visit, than a week ago, when I picked up a magazine in the waiting room and read a review for The Silver Lining. I immediately went to Barnes and purchased two copies. One for me and one for my friend. Who better to write a book on coping with breast cancer than a hospice nurse who has battled the disease herself.  Her practical advice, personal observations, thorough information and obvious empathy ensure that this book will undoubtedly become a must-read on coping with breast cancer. You don't have to read this book from cover to cover, although you will. You can dip in and out as Hollye's words and Elizabeth's beautiful photographs comfort, educate and give you courage for the journey ahead.
