Chicken Soup for the Soul: Hope and Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey

Chicken Soup for the Soul
Hope and Healing for Your Breast Cancer Journey

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:
There's not much I can say about this book. I felt it very appropriate to share this with you during October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It seems like everywhere you look people are being touched by breast cancer, whether it's a friend, family member, or yourself. This books is simply powerful. I feel incredibly fortunate that I am a healthy woman, but there is always a fear that lingers in your mind about the power of the unknown future. I am glad to have had the opportunity to check this book out and know about it. Should the occasion arrive where someone close to me is touched by this terrible disease, I will reach out with this book of hope. 

The best part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books is that you know there is a real person on the other side of every story. It makes you feel like you're not alone. You're connecting with people you've never met on a whole new level. This book shares stories, gives advice, and leaves the reader feeling hopeful.
