Breast cancer made Jennie Nash a wise old woman at the age of thirty-six. Marianne Williamson Jennie Nash more than survives cancer; she transforms the experience of the disease for herself and for others. The first faint notes came from a local news report in my hometown of Santa Barbara, California, and though I now live a hundred miles to the south, the flurry of phone calls that followed - "Did you hear?" "Have you talked to her?" - obliterated the barriers of distance: Lisa, a dear friend from high school, had been diagnosed with advanced metastatic lung cancer. This was news in that town because Lisa was the daughter of the city's congresswoman who had won her husband's seat after his sudden, midterm death from a heart attack two years before.

Breast cancer made Jennie Nash a wise old woman at the age of thirty-six. She learned, among other things, that her instincts are good, her kids are really resilient, and that, in the fight against breast cancer, the journey for patients, family, and friends can be a surprisingly positive, life-changing experience. Some five years younger than the AMA-recommended age for mammograms, Jennie Nash insisted she be tested, not because of a lump but because of a hunch brought on by a friend's battle with lung cancer. Jennie was as shocked to discover as her friend had been that cancer knows no age limits. From detection and surgery to reconstruction and recovery, Jennie gives readers a road map for a journey no one chooses to take. She details both the large and small lessons learned along the way: the importance of a child's birthday cake; the pleasure of wearing a beautiful, provocative red dress; how to be grateful rather than guilty when someone brings lasagne to the door; and that sometimes the only difference between getting to live and having to die is luck. A celebration of survival, Jennie Nash's account transforms one of life's most harrowing experiences into a story of reassurance and enlightenment.
  • Jennie Nash bares it all-her soul and body-in this very honest cancer memoir. I hadn't realized the layers of grief and myriad thoughts running through someone's heart when they're in the throes of cancer. Nash is no-holds-barrred, which makes her book both fresh and necessary.

  • This book, The Victoria's Secret Catalog Never Stops Coming and other Lessons I Learned from Breast Cancer, was just what I needed. I was diagnosed with the dreaded BC three weeks ago. I went through a lumpectomy a week ago. I spent the last 3 weeks pouring over technical medical books, reviewing statistics, researching information on the web and learning as much as I could about the disease. I purchased this book on a whim, thinking it may give a perspective that would help alleviate the stress I was going through.
    I laughed, cried and also realized that I was not alone. The descriptions of friends and family mirror my situation as well.
    The book is now an all time favorite of mine that I hope others will read and also be inspired to tell their story.

  • I first read this short story while undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer. When a relative of mine was dianosed with breast cancer a couple of months ago, I decided to send her the book, but reread it and decided not do so yet, as she was still facing her surgeries, reconstruction, etc. The book deals with the emotional and physical trama during breast cancer and reconstruction. It is a great read, but NOT for someone who's about to have surgery, as it's almost an everything-that-could-go-wrong, did. Almost, because at the end of the day, it's over and all the pains and tramas are behind her, and that's the strong message Nash is sending: despite all that she went through, she survived.

  • Somewhat depressing, was looking for something a bit more up beat.

  • Whether you're a patient or family member this book is well worth the price. It made me laugh, cry, and gave me plenty food for thought. Jennie's experience gives insight into some of the things a patient may go through and also the added impact to family dynamics that can occur when a loved one is diagnosed. I thank her for writing this book that was recommended by a surgeon.

  • As a recent breast cancer patient, this made me laugh and cry at the same time. The author's story is so similar to mine, I felt like she was talking to me.

  • This book is a GREAT read. For anyone going through breast cancer or gone through it or even those who support others....a must read.

  • Heard about this book when I watched one woman give the book to a breast cancer survivor. I got the title and then ordered it for a friend. When I got the book I read it to decide if it is a good book to give breast cancer survivors. I cried through every page. I gave it to my friend, Nancy. She too cried but said the author's story was exactly her story and that it has given voice to Nancy's experience. Nancy has already decided to whom she will give the book next. A wonderful book.
