248 indexed pages including bibliography. Advice for those diagnosed with breast cancer, from medical treatments to healing and recovery. At the heart of this book are the personal stories of women who are living with or who have survived breast cancer. Breasts receive more attention than perhaps any other body part. They symbolise a woman's femininity and sexuality, and are an important part of her self-image. Having a disease that affects them, as Cyndi Kaplan-Freiman discovered when her own breast cancer was diagnosed, is a unique, emotive journey. This is the book you need to help you cope with breast cancer. Using her own experience, Cyndi provides practical, supportive advice every step of the way, from diagnosis through to surgery and medical treatments, to healing and recovery. Besides clear and useful information to help you make important medical decisions, Cyndi also provides guidance on coping with side effects, how friends al1d family can help, what to expect when you have a mastectomy, relationship issues, the special needs of young women and women with advanced breast cancer, and much more. At the heart of this book are the personal stories of women who are living with or who have survived breast cancer. Their frank, companionable advice is not only invaluable but inspiring, imbued with a determination to move forward, using their breast cancer experience to make positive changes to their lives.
