When Musa Mayer's breast cancer was first diagnosed, none of the accounts she read fully addressed what, to her, was the most important aspect - the human, psychological dimensions of the illness and recovery. In this memoir for sufferers, as well as well as their families and friends, she chronicles her experience of several years with cancer, from biopsy and diagnosis to mastectomy, chemotherapy and reconstructive surgery. She describes coping with fears of recurrence and death, evaluating treatment options, dealing effectively with the medical establishment, and seeking personal support.
