The first part of the book goes from diagnosis through cancer treatments. How to manage surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation are components of this first half. Part II deals with everyones common fear, recurrence. This half, Will My Cancer Come Back? talks about good nutrition, risk factors for breast cancer, and symptoms of recurrence. When Juliane Cortino was diagnosed with breast cancer, she was surprised at the number of women who contacted her. Neighbors, women in her book club, friends of friends, all called to share their experiences. They were full of knowledge. They asked how they could help. Shed become a member of a sisterhood shed never aspired to join. But she turned to these women, this secret underground network, time and again for support. In Nothing Can Scare Me Now: Managing Breast Cancer So It Doesnt Manage You, Juliane shines a spotlight on this underground collective. Shes elevated the important information that was passed on to her and augmented it with information from doctors shes interviewed and her own extensive research. She hopes to share it all with you. Juliane believes Nothing Can Scare Me Now provides a piece missing from the available breast cancer literature. When she searched for a book that would tell her what to expect and how things worked, she found medical books and, primarily, compilations of survivors stories with a positive spin. Her book is an informational memoir offering an honest from-a-womans-heart perspective. A portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to cancer research.
