Mourning Has Broken: Reflections on Surviving Cancer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

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.
