About the Book

Just five months after giving birth to her first child, Nancy is diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 35. As a wife, new mother and working woman, she candidly shares her compelling survival story of how she dealt with the emotions of being diagnosed with breast cancer twice by the age of 37. Nancy vividly illustrates how she faced her own mortality and the impact this disease had on herself, her husband, family and friends. To further expand on this, she includes a special section called “Perspectives” at the end of the book. It’s here that her loved ones express their intimate thoughts and feelings on how they coped with Nancy’s diagnosis. Learn from her experience on how to deal with the highs and lows of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Nancy writes her story and shares her tribulations to help women, young and old alike, cope with breast cancer in a more positive light.
