Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800717783, Hardcover)Cancer isn't funny. But humor is healing. When Laura Jensen Walker was diagnosed with breast cancer on her first wedding anniversary, she found this to be abundantly true. "As someone who has gone through breast cancer-mastectomy, chemotherapy, and reconstruction-and gratefully come out the other side-okay, a little lopsided-I've learned firsthand that laughter helps," she writes. In this energetic and hope-filled book, Walker draws on her faith and sense of humor to write about a frightening experience that one in eight women will face. From discovering that "bald is beautiful" to navigating the world of saline breast implants, Walker recounts the highs and lows of coping with cancer. Infused with strength and dignity, this book will encourage women confronting the disease-and those who love them-that faith, hope, and a healthy dose of laughter can make all the difference. One chapter is written specifically to single women with breast cancer; another, written by the author's husband, speaks to caregivers. A portion of the proceeds of this book are being contributed to the American Cancer Society by both the author and the publisher.
