Breast cancer is a journey none of us wants to take. When we hear the words, "You have breast cancer," our lives freeze. What do we do now?
Douglas was diagnosed with DCIS, stage zero breast cancer, after her second annual mammogram and quickly found herself navigating a new world filled with biopsies, treatment decisions, and overwhelming emotions. She discovered that stage zero breast cancer doesn't mean zero challenges.
Her journey, along with those of other breast cancer patients, are woven throughout each chapter. Alongside the personal experiences is information that will help you decipher complicated imaging reports and recover from your procedures as comfortably as possible.
A Breast Cancer Journey: Living It One Step at a Time will help you walk through your journey feeling encouraged and empowered with knowledge and support.
