Overcoming is the first self-help book on the psychological aspects of lymphedema.
In her review that will appear in Lymph Link, the NLN newsletter, April 2006, Lori R. Volin OTR/L, CLT-LANA said:
"This book is a hands-on guide that is intended not just for patients who have lymphedema, but also for family and friends, parents who have children with lymphedema, medical professionals, and psychotherapists. This book is an excellent resource that will give us all tools we can use to bridge the gap between the physical and emotional- and truly treat the 'whole person.'"

Nordie's at Noon shares the personal stories of four young professional women diagnosed with breast cancer at age 30 or younger. Once a month, they met at Nordstrom's Cafe for lunch. It was their special place to laugh, cry, support and educate each other - and celebrate the journey of life after a cancer diagnosis.
Their diagnoses came at very different phases of their young lives. Patti was 24, single, and forging her way in the corporate world. Jana was planning her wedding at age 27, and courageously walked down the aisle wearing a wig and breast prosthesis. Jennifer, also 27, was five months pregnant when she was diagnosed, and endured surgery and chemotherapy during the pregnancy. Kim found her lump at age 30 while planning her son's second birthday party, and faced the issues of raising a toddler while she underwent treatment.
Nordie's at Noon will serve as a source of humor, strength, inspiration and education. It is the author's hope that this book will encourage women to be proactive with their health - and realize that no one is "too young" for breast cancer.
