I'm Too Young to Have Breast Cancer!: Regain Control of Your Life, Career, Family, Sexuality, and Faith

Beth Leibson-Hawkins, Author Lifeline Press (CA) $21.95 (280p) ISBN 978-0-89526-055-0
According to the National Cancer Institute, breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality in women under age 35. And though there are many medical texts available on choosing a doctor, understanding diagnosis and selecting treatments, Leibson-Hawkins's book focuses on ""issues of day-to-day life""--things like how to tell children, friends and coworkers about the disease; how to manage a job while undergoing chemotherapy; how to get back into a physical fitness routine after surgery; and how to breastfeed after cancer. The author, a freelance health writer and editor, addresses these issues and others largely through testimonies from breast cancer survivors. So while there is no general, bullet-point advice for dealing with common problems (e.g., feeling unattractive after losing one's hair to chemo), there are plenty of stories from women (told through Leibson-Hawkins, in the third person) that should comfort women confronting similar experiences.
