Overview Offers comfort and guidance for the newly diagnosed, long-term survivors, and their loved ones, sharing the heartwarming and motivational accounts of courageous women who found the strength and determination to fight and persevere in the battle against breast cancer. Original.
Your support group in a book, filled with boundless strength and profound hope - until the fight is won.
Along with the shock, fear and loss many women face upon a breast cancer diagnosis comes unexpected strength, wisdom, and strong networks of sharing, support and healing. In Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivor's Soul, survivors and their family members talk openly about how difficult their fight with breast cancer has been and how they made it through the dark times with a belief in a higher power and the support of those closest to them.
Find strength in the encouraging stories of how family members confront their fears and show genuine affection for one another through gestures such as a granddaughter cutting the hair off of all her dolls so that they will look more like her grandma, who is bald from chemotherapy, and the gentle touch of a three-year-old son on his mother's back giving comfort to his sick mommy, and a husband who shows his wife the depth of his love during a weekend getaway after she heals from a total mastectomy. Chicken Soup for the Breast Cancer Survivors Soul will show you the beautiful side of the human spirit and spark the optimism sometimes lost in the mist of an illness. It is for everyone with breast cancer and everyone who loves someone touched by the disease.

Encouraging and Uplifting Mar 29, 2007
In the format of the bestselling series, breast cancer survivor Mary Olsen Kelly has gathered snippets of courage, healing and hope into categories like "Love," "Challenges," "Character," "Survival" and "Gratitude." Each story is written in a different voice and, though some are far better than others, all provide an important perspective and insight into this devastating illness.
A powerful source of encouragement for survivors, family, friends and all who love them.
Support Group Between Two Covers Jan 15, 2007
As the co-author of this book, I have to thank the amazing story contributors who wrote deep and moving stories about their journey through breast cancer in order to help those who have been newly diagnosed, their families and friends. This book would not have been possible without their courage, strength, and humor. Yes, there are a lot of funny stories in here too. It was an honor to work with such talented and generous women survivors (and one man) who are all surviving and thriving. This book is inspiring, it gives you a lift and lets you know that as you go through the often scary treatments for breast cancer, you are not alone.

Wonderful! Inspirational! I love all the Chicken Soup Books!
A Gift For A Friend Jan 3, 2007
I bought this book as a gift for a friend who is a breast cancer survivor. However, I did read the book before I gave it to her. It was very inspirational, supportive and encouraging. I was greatly uplifted by this book, as I am by all of the Chicken Soup books. They are wonderful books and very needed in a world that tends to focus on the negative. These books are a great reprieve from some of the ugliness that we have to deal with in our every day lives. Thank you Jack Canfield.
comforting Jan 3, 2007
I bought this book several months after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was a comfort for me to read about other experiences that were positive. It is a club that nobody wants to belong to but...it is a club filled with wonderful people.
