I read this and found it mostly pablum. I think there are far better cancer books out there. Read Lance Armstrong's Not About the Bike or Cheryl Swanson's Busting Loose, which is also pretty gripping. (Even read Suzanne Sommers' latest--for interesting information about holistic medicine and because she's a spit in your eye type gal.)

Chicken Soup was so sanitized--doesn't talk about death, extreme pain, family members who sabotage you, and doctors who don't give a proverbial you know what. Now, those are the real problems we face with cancer, not these lukewarm stories and bromides. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0757305210, Paperback)

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.
