Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157324631X, Paperback)

This wise little book of 150 meditations is like a breast cancer support group. It is exactly what a woman recuperating in her hospital bed or during any of the other milestones of treatment and recovery might need--the advice and wisdom of other women who have preceded her in confronting breast cancer.

Gathered here are moving reflections, anecdotes, and practical information for women concerned with or diagnosed with this disease. Built upon the experiences of women of all ages-women who have undergone all types of breast surgery and treatments from lumpectomy and mastectomy to radiation and chemotherapy; women who are single, married, divorced, widowed, straight, gay-the reflections touch upon topics as universal as fear and grief and as intimate as sex.

The meditations help women:
discover healing insights and supportexplore options for defining a "new normal"commit to living each and every moment, fully and fearlessly

Every three minutes a woman in America is diagnosed with breast cancer. Shocking but true. And The Language of Healing is a place for all those women to find comfort and strength, day by day, and a reminder that breast cancer patients - at any stage of the disease or of their recovery - are not alone.
