From There to Here; A Breast Cancer Journey deals head on with life’s messy issues when you or a person you love is diagnosed with cancer. Diane Davies, trying to deal with her own diagnosis of breast cancer, kept a 302 day journal to record her thoughts, feelings, and interactions with her husband, family, friends, doctors and other medical staff. With honesty and wit, Diane discusses many of the issues people are most afraid to talk about—anger, denial, fear, the loss of a breast, rejection, pain, advocacy, treatment and reconstruction options. This reassuring intimate journey shows that cancer need not be the end, but the beginning of meaningful, loving relationships, both with ourselves and those closest to us.
One woman’s truthful and courageous journey from mammogram to breast reconstruction. Insightful reading for husbands, family and friends.
