First, the four-word diagnosis: ''You have breast cancer.''
Now what? Cindy Papale-Hammontree's The Empty Cup Runneth Over: Answers about Breast Cancer from the Experts takes the reader through it - from fear of the unknown and misconceptions to treatment and survival - step by step. Combining little understood insights and breaking scientific news from experts in the field, deeply personal testimonials from survivors, and a first-hand, emotional, real-life narrative, this all-inclusive, easy-to-read, and personal guide offers urgently needed, clearly comprehensible information for women of all ages on the devastating and potentially lethal disease.
Co-written by Sabrina Hernandez, a registered and licensed dietitian and nutrition counselor, this book, simply written and attractively illustrated, offers concrete, practical guidance and advice for facing a diagnosis that any woman can receive and increasing numbers of women do receive each year. With the input of sixteen medical authorities, the book presents and explains every treatment option available. Actress Lynn Redgrave, breast cancer survivor, hails the book as ''a hopeful, informative, and deeply emotional walk through the world of breast cancer.''
In the forward to The Empty Cup Runneth Over, Dr. Gail Ironson, a professor of psychology and psychiatry, describes the book's focus. She states Papale-Hammontree has organized the book around a series of answers to questions faced by patients and their friends and relatives when they receive a diagnosis of breast cancer. How do I deal with the diagnosis? What kind of biopsies are there? What can I expect during radiation and chemotherapy? What options are available for reconstruction? What about mammograms, prevention, and nutrition? Cindy Papale-Hammontree knows from personal experience exactly how one feels while approaching these questions. A breast cancer survivor, she received her diagnosis when she was forty-six years old. Immediately she began keeping a journal, doing research, lecturing, and sharing her insights. In this book, she communicates her personal history and provides hard facts that replace myths to help others to be less mystified, better informed, less frightened, and better prepared in facing their own battles and those of their loved ones.

''When you meet Cindy Papale, you would never know she's a breast cancer survivor. She's positive, joyful, and incredibly generous in giving her time and energy to something she cares very much about - informing young women about the real risks of breast cancer. In The Empty Cup Runneth Over, Cindy has brought together some of the leading experts in the medical field to offer the latest information about breast cancer-what to watch for, how to determine when an exam is necessary, and what to do when, in the worst-case scenario, you hear the words 'It's malignant.' Going beyond just technical information, Cindy has brought together a number of young women to share their personal stories - women in their twenties, women who would never expect to receive a cancer diagnosis, but in astonishing numbers are increasingly facing this devastating disease. We can all learn from their courage, their ability to overcome fear, and the tough decisions they've had to make between physical appearance or family and life. We also learn cancer has no boundaries and no age limits - any one of us could face the same diagnosis. The Empty Cup Runneth Over is an invaluable guide for all women and a source of inspiration to anyone who has had to deal with the challenges life brings. It is Cindy's gift to us - and one we should treasure.'' --Ellen Jaffe, Afternoon Host/Assistant Program Director, 101.5 LITE FM Radio, Miami, Florida
''In my days during and after football, I found out the hard way that no one is truly invincible. When I heard from my doctor that I had cancer, I felt as if I had just received the biggest blow I ever received on or off the field. As Cindy so passionately recalls in her book, I ran through the whole gamut of emotions as well! The Empty Cup Runneth Over is a great read and a must-read - survivor or not. Told from the heart, with humor and sincerity, Cindy takes you on an unforgettable journey from prevention to survival. Added to her personal account is tremendous advice from experts in the field. Cindy's dream, like ours, is to find the cure. Too many of us have paid the ultimate price to make this dream come true. Don't miss out on reading The Empty Cup Runneth Over.'' --Vince Papale, Former Philadelphia Eagle and Author of the Book Invincible
''This book is a wonderful read. It is not just a story of Cindy and how she dealt with her cancer or a book about prevention and treatments, but more than that - a wonderful ride on the Papale philosophy of life. Read the book and follow its recommendations, and we will all live better.'' --Dr. Pedro J. Greer, Jr., F.A.C.P., F.A.C.G., Author of Waking Up In America
