When Alesia Shute was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 7, her life was redirected as was that of her entire family. She would go on to survive six major surgeries that had never been tested on a child, several minor surgeries and countless hours of pain and months of hospitalization. Alesia had to grow up quickly and adjust to being sickly and different from others. Everything is Okay is her story of survival that details not only her recovery, but also her struggles through school, boys, marriage, and pregnancy, with some hilarious tales of business to boot.
This book chronicles my journey, as a wife and mother of three young sons, through two bouts with breast cancer. I relate how I was able to juggle a full-time professional job with treatments and parenting. Included are chapters on beauty tips, journaling, support groups, how to relate to cancer survivors, and the particularly demanding challenges of lymphedema, a little-known complication of breast cancer surgery and/or radiation.

When Diana Ballinger was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had no idea what lay ahead. The surgery, crippling side-effects of chemo and radiation, and the emotions that threatened to boil over pushed her to write for her life. This mother and wife feared she couldn't fight cancer and fulfill her family and work responsibilities. She dealt with the disfigurement, loss of employment and the travails of insurance by writing poetry. Ballinger knew she was more than her breast cancer. She wanted her daughter to have a normal life while she underwent treatment and she was determined to make that happen. What she didn't expect, is how much her daughter would help her. "Fighting My Way Through Breast Cancer With Poetry" takes the reader step by step through her journey. It is her first book. Ballinger lives in California with her husband, Dick and her 16 yr. old daughter, Ashley, and celebrated her 1 yr. anniversary as a survivor in Feb. 2009.
Hearing "you have breast cancer" is terrifying, the start of an emotional roller coaster. For the 1 in 7 who are diagnosed, Ballinger's book will help navigate the journey from diagnosis to survivor.
A collection of poems to help women get through the many emotions that come with breast cancer from diagnosis to becoming a survivor.
