I am excited to announce (finally) here on the blog that my new ebook, Facing Your Mastectomy & Making Reconstruction Decisions, is now available! If you subscribe to my newsletters, you have known about my new ebook for a while. It always ends up taking me longer than planned to finish any sort of writing project, and this new ebook was no exception.
The title is pretty self-explanatory, right? I tried to come up with a more catchy title, but how do you make such a serious topic sound anything but serious?
To be clear, the primary focus of all breast cancer treatment is saving lives, not breasts.
Believe me, I fully realize the insignificance of breasts in comparison to any woman’s life. However, having said this, having your breasts amputated (yes, that’s what a mastectomy should be called) is a huge deal and that’s why I put together this particular ebook.
Before my mastectomy, I was very unprepared and very afraid. Who wouldn’t be, right?
Fear of the unknown is natural. And when you’re facing cancer and “options” such as a mastectomy and making reconstruction decisions, there are countless unknowns.
So, how in the world do you prepare for a mastectomy anyway? Is it even possible?
You cannot truly prepare for something as awful and as scary as a mastectomy, but you can learn from the experiences of others. You can find comfort in reading about someone else’s experience as well.
Facing Your Mastectomy & Making Reconstruction Decisions can be one more source of knowledge and comfort for the person facing these life-altering challenges.
My ebook focuses on the emotional aspect of things because that’s what I feel is missing during consultations and such. Too often the emotional side of things isn’t discussed much, or even at all.
Here are a few things covered in my ebook:
- Practical tips on how to prepare for your mastectomy
- Self-advocacy encouragement
- Comebacks for those “free boob job” comments you’re sure to hear
- The prophylactic choice
- Grieving for your breasts
- Advice about things such as: what to take to the hospital, how to handle the dreaded drains, what to wear, what you will look like post-surgery worries, your emotions and more
- My mastectomy and reconstruction experiences and as always, no sugarcoating!
Facing a mastectomy is scary. Facing cancer, whether you’ve just been diagnosed yourself, a loved one of yours has been, or if cancer is lurking in your DNA and you are doing everything in your power to avoid a diagnosis, is scarier still.
So, we do what we must, right?
If you or if someone you know, is facing these frightening and life-changing challenges, it can be so overwhelming.
Facing Your Mastectomy & Making Reconstruction Decisions can help the reader come away with a sense of empowerment and readiness to self-advocate with a bit more confidence and a bit less fear.
Keeping it real. Support you can use.
My new ebook offers both.
Facing Your Mastectomy & Making Reconstruction Decisions is available only at Nancy’s Point. This makes it possible to offer it to you for just $3.
