I must say that there are so many wonderful books that have been written by breast cancer survivors and their families and friends about the journeys that have been taken to fight this disease.  There is no way that I could begin to read them all if I spent every waking moment doing so for the rest of my life.  With that said, I have found some books that have had a particular impact on me or were of special interest to me from the world of cancer for which I have stepped away from my normal blogging and provided a review of them.  This is a site that I know will grow over time and that I want to share with you in the hope that you might find some of the same hope and inspiration that I have in reading these works.
