Hutton, Andrea

The breast cancer guide every woman needs for herself, her best friend, and her sister--a warm, practical, relatable handbook, that dispels the terror, taking you step-by-step through the process, from diagnosis to post-treatment.

But nothing prepared her for what the surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation would feel like. Were there tricks that could ease her pain and discomfort? What was "fatigue" and how would it affect her? At what exact moment would her hair fall out and how? Hutton wanted what she could not find: a clear how-to guide for the cancer girl she had become.

They make people feel good, as if engaged in a successful battle against breast cancer. But who is really benefitting? More and more women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Wouldn't it be something if some of the very companies that profit from their pink marketing campaigns have actually contributed to the epidemic by selling known carcinogens?
