I purchased this for my sister in law who was diagnosed with breast cancer May 2011. She took the book with her to the treatment center. She told me she loved the stories and has already started writing in the journal.
A colleague gave me this book after I had been diagnosed. IT IS WONDERFUL! I circled, underlined, wrote thousands of comments, etc---it helped me through a devastating period of my life. On my celebration date last month, I re-read much of the book and found my comments to be extremely interesting...it is something I will cherish forever. I highly recommend it. I am thankful my colleague purchased it for me!
I read this book right after I was diagnosed. It is one of the most down to earth books I read on such a personal scary subject. Wonderful practical pointers, for those new to the diagnosis and great spiritual insight. I would also recommend it to any one who has had cancer in the past, still read this! It will help the wounds you still carry to heal.
