We're All in This Together: Families Facing Breast Cancer

Irence Virag, Author, Irene Virag, Author, Erica Berger, Photographer Andrews McMeel Publishing $14.95 (99p) ISBN 978-0-8362-7050-1
Originating in a Newsday newspaper series of profiles and photographs about women on New York's Long Island battling breast cancer, this book will move--and help--readers in any location. Sixteen women openly discuss the intimate details of their pain, anger and fear, revealing as well their courage, hope and moments of joy and humor in their struggles against this disease that transforms the lives and families of those it touches. Virag's present-tense text is direct and aimed at the heart; the families revealed in Berger's photos are as recognizable as one's next-door neighbors. Not every cancer patient recovers, yet the resilience of these women and their families and the centrality of love and compassion in their travails reward the reader. (June)
