When you’re looking for hope . . . turn to women who have survived. In 25 essays, notable women such as Joan Lunden, Barbara Delinsky, Liz Lange, Shonda Schilling, Bárbara Padilla, Sylvia McNair, and Marissa Jaret Winokur write with moving candor about how they faced cancer without letting it define their lives or conquer their spirits. 25 Women Who Survived Cancer is an uplifting book of hope for anyone who has been diagnosed with, or is being treated for, cancer, as well as cancer survivors and those who are providing support for cancer patients.
The authors write with candor about how they faced cancer without letting it define their lives or conquer their spirits. They recall how they reacted to receiving their diagnosis, how they moved beyond fear to become engaged in their healing process, and how they dealt with body image and sexuality while undergoing treatment. Their reflections on what their cancer has taught them, and how their lives have been changed by it, are poignant and powerful. This collection includes the experiences of women who have survived breast cancer, uterine, cervical, and ovarian cancer; Hodgkin lymphoma; and malignant melanoma.
