They come from different backgrounds and from professions as varied as medicine, education, and entertainment, but these ten women share one thing in common: They all have breast cancer. This book describes their experiences, exploring their initial fear, rage, and uncertainty, and reveals how each eventually coped, in her own way, with her diagnosis. In addition to these inspiring stories, Breast Cancer? Let Me Check My Schedule! also features step-by-step tactics to help women handle the emotional, sexual, and occupational impact of this disease and includes practical information on finding proper health care, locating support groups, and more. It is a vital resource for women who arent ready to relinquish control of their lives to cancer.
