More > From the Author Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, after nonmelanoma skin cancer. Over the past 50 years, the number of women diagnosed with the disease has increased each year. Today, approximately 1 in almost every 8 women (13.4%) will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Breast cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer -- and is the leading cause of cancer death among women ages 35 to 54. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 211,240 women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer and approximately 40,410 will die. Although these numbers may sound frightening, research reveals that the mortality rate could decrease by 30% if all women age 50 and older who need a mammogram had one. As a woman I firmly believe that we cannot wait until the doctors diagnose us with a frightening disease, such as breast cancer and hope for a miracle cure. It is up to each individual to educate themselves, understand what breast cancer is, how it is caused and how we can help ourselves, so the chances of getting breast cancer is increasing low. From the Inside Flap All my life I have been writing books and poetry about epilepsy. As I have been getting older now in my mid-thirties I have seen several of my friends develop breast cancer and other types of cancers. I have learned over the years that words can be very powerful and can change a person's life. I myself have not experienced breast cancer, but I wrote this book to help educate women about breast cancer, so they can help prevent it or catch it in the early stages when it can be treated and cured. I also wanted to teach my coping skills and techniques. These powerful techniques were created to help women with breast cancer. Today, approximately one in almost every eight women (13.4%) will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. Why take changes with your life. I have learned over the years that doctors are people too, not miracle workers. It is up to us to research and do what ever possible to help maintain a happy, healthy and productive life.

I admire the fact that someone like Stacey Chillemi was thrown a curve ball that may have knocked many of us down to the point where many of us may not have wanted to get back up, but she did. It wasn't easy but she possesses a determined spirit that won't let her give up. For that reason, Stacey will go far and achieve whatever dreams she sets her mind to accomplish.
