Chicken Soup for the Soul – Breast Cancer Survivor’s Soul

Book description:

Your support group in a book, filled with boundless strength and profound hope – until the fight is won.

Along with the shock, fear and loss many women face upon a breast cancer diagnosis comes unexpected strength, wisdom, and strong networks of sharing, support and healing. In Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor’s Soul, survivors and their family members talk openly about how difficult their fight with breast cancer has been and how they made it through the dark times with a belief in a higher power and the support of those closest to them.

Find strength in the encouraging stories of how family members confront their fears and show genuine affection for one another through gestures such as a granddaughter cutting the hair off of all her dolls so that they will look more like her grandma, who is bald from chemotherapy, and the gentle touch of a three-year-old son on his mother’s back giving comfort to his sick mommy, and a husband who shows his wife the depth of his love during a weekend getaway after she heals from a total mastectomy.
Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivors Soul will show you the beautiful side of the human spirit and spark the optimism sometimes lost in the mist of an illness. It is for everyone with breast cancer and everyone who loves someone touched by the disease.

Review:
This book was given to me by a very good friend, that just happens to be a breast cancer survivor herself.  She read this book, received encouragement from it, and decided to gift it to me.  When I received this book, we were on our whirlwind of a vacation.  It was my last vacation right before I started my chemo, and a great book to read as we headed home.
There are many stories of encouragement,  love, and support; many of these stories will bring tears to your eyes.  There really isn’t much to say about this book, except that as a breast cancer survivor myself I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It was exactly what I needed!  I laughed and I cried as I prepared to for the second phase of my battle.
The reason I chose to review this book today is because recently I learned that a lady that we know has also been diagnosed with breast cancer.  This is a great gift idea.  I realize this isn’t much of a review, but more of a gift idea.  We all know people that have suffered from this horrible disease, and I feel that this book will give them a short break from the fear, worry, or anxiousness that they might be experiencing.
