About this title

Synopsis:


This book reveals a breast cancer survivors journey with  moments of frustration, anger, fear and sometimes quick decision-making, with inadequate information . In a masterful way using short stories, poetry and memoirs the writer captures you with a wealth of information, which turns you from fear to fearlessness.  The book also provides effective manners in which a supporter can help their loved one through their journey.

A short Breast Cancer dictionary is included to familiarize you with words and definitions as you attempt to understand a breast cancer diagnosis.

                                                                 

From the Author:

Life is just not fair, I thought, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had never been sick in my adult life, not even a severe cold. I was in the middle of planning my wedding, which was suppose to be an exciting and joyous occasion, yet now the only thing I could think about was breast cancer and will I live or will I die. The life I had planned was now being shattered. I knew nothing about breast cancer. The remote conversations I had engaged in were generally, limited, hushed and daunting. Therefore my diagnosis was governed by confusion, fear and anger which led to quick decision making with unfamiliar choices.  These feelings guided me to a place of loneliness and isolation, even when I was surrounded by those that loved me. During this time of vexation, I returned back to my special place of consolation..."journaling." During my breast cancer journey, journaling became my greatest support. I would write my feelings and thoughts and hide my deepest fears. Journaling gave me comfort in knowing my inner feelings would not be judged, or compared to others. Journaling taught me to be a better listener and also how to gently love myself back to a position that would enable me to reconcile with myself and sometimes even with God, that same God that I found myself at times questioning him about my predicament . Now eight years later, I decided to compile the entries from my journal into the form of poetry, memoirs and short stories. These excerpts reveal how I handled the emotional turmoil, during a breast cancer journey.
