Archive of a Breast Cancer Survivor
Ships in 3-5 business days
I was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 19, 2004, six days before Thanksgiving. Two weeks later I had my breast removed and immediately reconstructed with a temporary implant. At the time I wasn’t sure what those two weeks represented but I began to document each and every appointment: the barium drink, the chest x-ray, the bone scan, the cancer surgeon, the oncologist, the plastic surgeon, and even the signing of the surgery papers. This book is about the documentation and the process of my breast cancer survivorship. It is the end of a beginning, and the beginning of a new me—survivor and reconstructed self—who shares these images and words so that my history can be more than a personal reminder. Thank you for being a part of my process and purchasing this book for either yourself or someone you know. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the American Cancer Society.
