Bestselling author Barbara Delinsky, whose own life was dramatically shaped by her mother's breast cancer as well as her own, creates with this book exactly the kind of resource she wished had existed at the time of her treatment.You won't find medical advice or technical matters discussed in this unprecedented book. What readers will find are all the things that only the women who have already been there can tell us -- from nitty-gritty tips on even the smallest details of daily life to inspiring personal anecdotes that by turns amuse, comfort, and instruct. Survivors share their answers to questions like: Are there certain foods that are best for treatment days? When it comes to leaning on my friends, how much is 'too much'? How can I still feel feminine?Uplift isn't only for those with breast cancer. Friends and family can find out how they can help. And men share what worked best and how they felt when a woman they cared about was going through treatment.Practical, warm, funny, reassuring, and always real, Uplift arms readers with the various means by which countless women diagnosed with breast cancer have faced their fears, survived their ordeal, and bravely gotten on with life and love, career and family.
