"Fighting My Way Through Breast Cancer With Poetry"

Type: 
Book
Description: 

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.

You Don't Have To Die When Your Doctor Says

Type: 
Book
Description: 

You Don’t Have To Die When Your Doctor Says is a book about the power of belief in the context of a serious disease or medical death sentence. In many ways I have written this book for myself, but if you are experiencing a diagnosis of cancer or have been told you only have so long to live then I have also written it for you (and that’s why it’s a fairly brief book!)
