Journalist Dina Rabinovitch had just turned 40 when was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2004.
At that point she didn't know a thing about the disease.
Today she's an expert. Her experience of the condition and its treatment, from diagnosis through mastectomy to recovery, is recounted in this down-to-earth memoir covering everything from trialling Herceptin to what to wear that's stylish after surgery.
Warm, lively, at times irreverent, Rabinovitch's story of juggling a hectic career and a large, extended family while living with cancer is a strong and engaging narrative that will be essential reading for anyone affected by this most prevalent disease.
