Journeys with Breast Cancer.
'Spirited Women' addresses the many practical as well as emotional issues faced by women of diverse backgrounds as they journey with the experience of breast cancer. It is based on the experiences of hundreds of women who talk frankly and bravely about how breast cancer has changed their priorities, affected their self esteem, their sexuality and their relationships, and has provided unexpected opportunities for growth.
This book offers guidelines for dealing with the diagnosis, choosing a doctor and a treatment plan, minimising the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, using food to support recovery, communicating effectively with partners and families and on how to find peace.
Gentle, honest, informative and moving, 'Spirited Women' is an essential book for anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer.
