The Breast Cancer Field Manual outlines what breast cancer patients, families, and friends really need to know about life with breast cancer from diagnosis and treatment to friends and dating. More Lara Croft than Betty Crocker, author Allison Barrie draws on her experiences as both a national security expert and a young breast cancer survivor to provide straightforward practical advice, with plenty of personal stories and humor mixed in. Each chapter blends Barrie's personal experiences and those of other patients with current research and practical advice to help readers cope with the devastating news of a breast cancer diagnosis. Field manual chapters give key information for every stage of the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery process. Through chapters like Dressing for Battle, Barrie addresses sensitive topics like a woman's changing appearance through the treatment process, and offers advice that may not be intuitive, such as the suggestion that women go bra shopping before a mastectomy, since no post-op patient wants to be surrounded by wall-size photos of perfect breasts or face quadruple dressing room mirrors right away. The Breast Cancer Field Manual approaches this serious subject in a first-person, light-hearted way to offer encouragement to breast cancer patients of all ages, and particularly to young women, their friends, and families. With one in eight women in the United States diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives, The Breast Cancer Field Manual offers tactical advice for fighting through this challenge.
