From the Inside Flap:

A breakthrough book for America's 2.5 million breast cancer survivors, showcasing the pioneering "Focus on Healing" exercise-and-movement program touted by physicians coast-to-coast and recommended by the American Cancer Society.

The months following breast cancer treatment can bring a difficult combination of emotional and physical challenges, including a decreased range of motion, pain, fatigue, and depression. But when Sherry Lebed Davis's mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1979, Davis and her two brothers, both physicians, created a special movement therapy program to speed their mother's healing. Spurring extraordinary success in her and many others, "Focus on Healing" soon became on of the first hospital-endorsed dance and exercise programs in the nation, a prescription that Davis came to appreciate even more when she herself became a breast-cancer survivor in 1996.

Taking a unique, proven approach to healing, Thriving After Breast Cancer shares the easy-to-follow techniques that have improved the lives of thousands of patients. Embracing psychological recovery and treatment of chronic pain, Davis's "Focus on Healing" regimen consists of stretches and dance-inspired moves that restore flexibility and balance while minimizing discomfort. With exercises to address a full range of specific situations, whether the reader has experienced chemotherapy, a lumpectomy, of a full masectomy, Thriving After Breast Cancer offers solutions that can be gently eased into a patient's routine. Now adopted by more than one hundred hospitals around the country (including New York City's prestigious Memorial Sloan-Kettering) and picking up where medical treatment leaves off, Davis's program gives breast cancer survivors an uplifting, empowering next step on the road to restoring the life that they life.

From the Back Cover:

"It is critical for women to start moving right away after treatment and that they continue moving if they are to maintain their mobility. Sherry Davis' approach will make a big difference in the quality of life of women after breast cancer."
--Susan M. Love, M.D., author of Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book

"This book and the program it describes should assist many as they strive for the ultimate goal of therapy--a full, healthful, and active life."
--Clifford Hudis, M.D., Chief, Breast Cancer Medicine Service Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

"Women may find her [Davis'] focus on restoring both flexibility and femininity to be just what they're looking for."
--Publisher's Weekly
