Review:

I have been an oncology nurse for twenty-nine years. Carrie Sanders has assembled a tool that will help organize and make sense of appointments and be a solid reference once they are over. She sheds light on all the issues, and lists community resources that will help during treatment. This is a valuable book for patients, for their families, and for the entire support team, not only at the beginning of treatment but through the entire process. I m grateful for the effort and heart that has gone into this organizer, and I fully endorse it. --Marianne Sterling, R.N.,

I was diagnosed at the age of 24. At that time indescribable emotions were running through me. I felt lost and confused; I didn t know where to begin or even what questions to ask. Speaking from experience, this book will help you organize your questions and thoughts to better prepare you for what lies ahead. The Breast Cancer Journey Planner is a must have for any woman diagnosed with breast cancer. --J. Smith - Survivor

The Breast Cancer Journey Planner feels beautiful and special in the hand. The three-ring-binder format invites the reader to use the book as she chooses. Its easy to add notes from doctor visits and letters from friends. You can add photos and journal entries. Not that The Breast Cancer Journey Planner doesn t have tons of advice and guidance on its own. I just happen to love planners that give people freedom to do it their way. This book accomplishes that goal to perfection. No cancer diagnosis and no treatment plan will be one-size-fits-all. Why not have a journal filled with advice and a Web site to visit for comfort and guidance, all of which you can turn into a unique record of your journey? All of that, with education and encouragement all the way? This is a fantastic concept. Go to Carries site and check it out. I can tell you first hand that, if you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, this book will feel like a supportive friend. If you have a friend with breast cancer here s the perfect way to say, I care. --Carol Bradley Bursack, author - Minding Our Elders
