Spirited Women addresses the many practical and emotional issues faced by women of diverse backgrounds as they journey with the experience of breast cancer. It is based on the experiences of hundreds of women who talk frankly and bravely about how breast cancer has changed their priorities, affected their self-esteem, their sexuality and their relationships, and has provided unexpected opportunities for growth, healing and understanding.
This book offers guidelines for dealing with the diagnosis, choosing a doctor and a treatment plan, minimising the effects of chemotherapy and radio-therapy, using food to support recovery, communicating effectively with partners and families and finding peace.
Gentle, honest, informative and moving, Spirited Women is an essential book for anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer. Many women have referred to Spirited Women as their bible that they always keep close by.
