No Less a Woman: Ten Women Shatter the Myths about Breast Cancer

Deborah Hobler Kahane, Author Prentice Hall $18.45 (279p) ISBN 978-0-13-624073-0
In down-to-earth yet sensitive terms, Kahane, a health educator for the American Cancer Society, presents her own experience and that of 10 other breast cancer survivors of diverse ages and backgrounds. Short, candid autobiographies preface accounts of the trauma of diagnosis, treatments and the varied ways breast cancer altered these women's lives, relationships and perceptions of themselves. Kahane strongly urges women to undergo periodic detection tests, especially monthly self-examination, and to control the selection of treatment options. Most stricken women, she observes, come to realize that feminity does not reside only in their breasts, and that self-esteem is the key to achieving a productive professional and emotional life.
