Bathsheba's Breast: Women, Cancer & History

Type: 
Book
Description: 

A scholarly history of breast cancer, from ancient Egypt all the way to the present time.

While I was in treatment, I kept wondering what women had to go through BEFORE there were lumpectomies, or chemo, or estrogen blockers, so I found this book really fascinating....I'm a big history wonk....:-)

The Cancer Survivor's Guide: Foods That Help You Fight Back

Type: 
Book
Description: 

A lot of the same ideas about food as Anti-Cancer, but with recipes and practical tips for how to incorporate foods into your diet. I thought the practical aspect was an area where Anticancer was lacking, so this makes a good companion to it.

After Breast Cancer: A Common-Sense Guide to Life After Treatment

Type: 
Book
Description: 

The one book I would buy, if I could, for every woman finishing treatment. The author is an oncology social worker and two-time breast cancer survivor. I started it about a month before finishing treatment, and carried it around with me like Linus with his blankie.

No one tells you how difficult it's going to be, emotionally and physically, when you finish active treatment -- this book really helped.

Voices of Survivors

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

The “Voices of Survivors Foundation” is devoted to exploring what ‘Survivorship’ means to the individual ‘Survivor’, whether they are recently diagnosed, in-treatment or post-treatment, in a variety of documentary formats. Each ‘Survivor’ helps define what this means to not only themselves, but also gives insight to others who are on this journey as well, either as a ‘Survivor’ or a ‘Co-Survivor’.

The face of cancer is one that has been portrayed as that of only older people or children for so long, but that face is not reflective of whom cancer truly affects. It affects us all! We become a ‘Survivor’ when we first hear those three words: “You have cancer.”

At that moment, your ‘Survivorship’ begins and you are not alone. Each and every ‘voice’ shared can mean so much to so many and touch even more. Stand up, be heard!

I'm Too Young For This! Cancer Foundation - i[2]y

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

i[2]y exists to ensure that every young adult affected by cancer is given access to the best age-appropriate support they are entitled to in order to get busy living at every stage of their survivorship.
