I want you to know that I loved everything about your book. I am a newly diagnosed patient and oncology nurse. I found it to be a wonderful tool to navigate through this journey. You are so overwhelmed when first diagnosed and you need help with every area of the treatment. You help the patient become organized and have a sense of being proactive and involved in their care, and I just believe that is so important. Thank you so much for what you have done and what you continue to do for all that face a breast cancer diagnosis
Being diagnosed with breast cancer can seem so scary and make you feel so isolated from the rest of the world. Your book is great! It has been my “constant companion” over the last couple of days. Thanks for sitting in your basement for 2 years and writing it! I’m sure that there will be many more women like me that will be grateful to you for “making sense” out of all this madness. Having your book is like having a girlfriend that has been through it before that you can turn to for advice!

When a person gets diagnosed with breast cancer, it is hard to know where to turn. Don’t Google breast cancer, you will get 120 million hits and this certainly cannot help. It is a small wonder that it is so easy to get confused and get inaccurate information! This book does it all, it gives you the best information you need to know about your diagnosis and treatments and it organizes the tasks at hand. This is not only educational but organizational- why re-invent the wheel? I encourage someone with a new diagnosis of breast cancer to use this book to get you started and for the avid reader they can go beyond. Most people will find everything they need from this book. It will become your most valuable resource!!
