An essential, hopeful, and supportive guide to dealing with breast cancer in a "wise, balanced book"-coauthored by a breast cancer survivor (Publishers Weekly). A Harvard Business School and Smith College graduate, marketing executive Deborah A. Cohen was, like so many others, going about her life as a young and healthy woman when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. With courage, commitment-and no small amount of humor-she beat the disease. And she decided to share her hard-learned lessons with others dealing with this all too common illness. From the shock of diagnosis to getting through treatment and getting on with your life, Just Get Me Through This! is packed with straight talk and practical tips, including advice from two prominent breast cancer surgeons. It covers topics including: -The latest data on hormonal treatments -Information on the latest drugs used as part of chemotherapy -How to ease back into an intimate relationship -The surefire way to beat insurance and workplace hassles -What medical professionals say about everything from surgery to soy Each step of the way, this wise and witty companion will be there with unfailing inspiration and heart-to-heart support that is less coldly clinical and more like "the kind of warm, funny, rueful sharing a woman gets from a good talk with her girlfriends" (Publishers Weekly). It's also simple to use, with an accessible format that can make even the toughest days a whole lot easier.
