This gripping memoir tells the story of a survivor of a 32-year battle with basal cell skin cancer that required 4 major cancer removal surgeries, the amputation of her nose, and 18 reconstructive surgeries to restore it. In her youth, like many young people of the 1920s and 1930s, Carolyn Shuck underwent X-ray treatments for acne—a medical procedure that almost certainly caused the cancer that would take away her face and almost her life. Through the years of struggling with recurring cancers and devastating treatments, Carolyn led her life as normally as possible, raising three children and volunteering countless hours for Planned Parenthood. This account of living with skin cancer will inspire skin cancer patients and should be read by doctors, nurses, and other caregiving professionals.
