Book description
There's more to breast cancer than genetic encoding and cellular tissue. If a woman's life is consumed by her compulsion to care for everything or everyone but herself, then breast cancer is an apt metaphor and an opportunity for change. Whether you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, scared by the prospects of such a diagnosis, or have been touched by someone who has struggled with breast cancer, this book will illuminate psychological foundations of this deadly affliction. Women of all ages owe it to themselves to make the breast cancer connection, by getting in touch with what it means to be mothered and to mother oneself.
