Thanks for the Mammogram!

***get your mammograms, ladies!**

Author: Laura Jensen Walker
Publisher: Revell Books
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3130-4
Genre: Women/Health Issues

Getting breast cancer isn’t funny. It’s a terrifying experience. And scary. But when Laura Jensen Walker was diagnosed with breast cancer on her first wedding anniversary, she shows that even life threatening diseases can be fought with humor, strength and dignity.

In this short humorous book, Laura addresses topics such as:

Ø For Better or Worse – not part of the happily-ever-after plan
Ø Beauty and the Beast – reconstruction surgery
Ø To Baldly Go Where I’d Never Gone Before – coping with losing hair
Ø How to lose 30 lbs in 30 days: the Chemo Diet way – not recommended

Plus much more.

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and started the process without reading this book. However, during my recovery after the mastectomy a friend send me this book. It was laugh out loud funny in spots and I even shared parts of it with my husband.

Not all women will get breast cancer. But all of us have known somebody who has been touched by this disease. This book is for all of us, the ones who are afflicted, the ones who are cured, and the ones who haven’t had it but have a friend or acquaintance who’ve had it. Pick up a copy today, read it yourself, then pass it on to someone you love. $10.99. 170 pages.
