A funny book about a very unfunny subject, breast cancer. I read this when my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and I found it helpful to read about someone else who has gone through the same thing she was (having a mastectomy). ( )

Interesting look at Breast Cancer and what it means to have a breast in the western world. Her decisions were brave and interesting.

Her fears about recurrance hit close to the bone while I'm waiting to see my oncologist later this month! ( )

THE BASIS FOR THE LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE!
Having recently graduated from Columbia Journalism School and landed her dream job at 20/20, the last thing 27-year-old Geralyn expects to hear is a breast cancer diagnosis. And there is one part of the diagnosis that no one will discuss with her: what it means to be a young girl with cancer in a beauty-obsessed culture. Trying to find herself, while losing her vibrancy and her looks, Geralyn embarks on a road to self-acceptance that will inspire all women. Although her book is explicitly about a period of time where she was driven by fear and uncertainty about the future, Geralyn managed a transformation that will encourage all women under siege to discover their own courage and beauty. The important and outrageous lessons of Why I Wore Lipstick come fast and furious with the same gusto that Geralyn has learned to bring to every moment of her life.
