Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope and Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey (Review and Giveaway)

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope & Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey: Surviving and Thriving During and After Your Diagnosis and Treatment 


Surviving and Thriving During and After Your Diagnosis and Treatment

Inspiring Chicken Soup for the Soul stories and accessible leading-edge medical information from Dr. Julie Silver of Harvard Medical School. The stories in this book from women with breast cancer and their family members, along with the up-to-date medical information provided, will give you inspiration, strength and hope. This book will educate and comfort you and will serve as a support group from diagnosis through treatment to rehabilitation and recovery.

My Thoughts:

Even though I had nasopharyngeal carcinoma in 2008, I was still able to relate to many of the inspirational stories in this book.  It was nice to see that other cancer survivors go through the same emotional struggles before, during and after treatment.  I know for me, that leading up to my scans every 3 months, those few days before the scans and then the two weeks after until I see the doctors and get my results are crazy.  I experience a multitude of emotions, and turn to my family for love and support to get me through those times.  I know in time, these appointments will become less dreaded and easier to take, but until I hit the five year mark and are told that I am in remission, books like this really do help and provide inspiration.

If you or someone you know suffers from breast cancer, are just beginning the journey of treatment, or are in remission, this book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, is a beacon of support and hope.  I couldn't put the book down once I began reading.  Some stories brought back treatment and side effect memories, others made me cry, and I couldn't help laugh at a few others.  I have to say that this book is one of the best I have read recently, and one I can refer friends and family to suffering from breast cancer.


You can order this book in paperback, as well as Kindle version from Amazon.  Right now, the book is selling for $9.95, by clicking here:
