Kinshasha talked with with Ruth Peltason author of the new book, I Am Not My Breast Cancer.
If you or a loved one has or has had breast cancer, I Am Not My Breast Cancer is an invaluable tool. The book is written off of message board posts from an internet online support group, so you get the ebb and flow of conversation as women from all different walks of life weigh in on how this disease has and is affecting them. With over 800 contributing voices, the book has much to say. It covers topics from the obvious fear of the diagnosis to the less obvious discomforts and challenges that many women with breast cancer face alone.
