A definitive and
approachable guide to life during, and after, breast cancer
The biggest risk factor for breast cancer is simply being a
woman. Madhulika Sikka’s A Breast Cancer
Alphabet offers a new way to live with and plan past the hardest diagnosis
that most women will ever receive: a personal, practical, and deeply
informative look at the road from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. What
Madhulika Sikka didn’t foresee when initially diagnosed, and what this book
brings to life so vividly, is the unexpected and minute challenges that make
navigating the world of breast cancer all the trickier. A Breast Cancer Alphabet is an inspired reaction to what started as
a personal predicament.
This A–Z guide to living with breast cancer goes where so
many fear to tread: sex (S is for Sex—really?), sentimentality (J is for
Journey—it’s a cliché we need to dispense with), hair (H is for Hair—yes, you
can make a federal case of it), and work (Q is for Quitting—there’ll be days
when you feel like it). She draws an easy-to-follow, memorable map of her
travels from breast cancer neophyte to seasoned veteran.
As a prominent news executive, Madhulika had access to the
most cutting edge data on the disease’s reach and impact. At the same time, she
craved the community of frank talk and personal insight that we rely on in
life’s toughest moments. This wonderfully inventive book navigates the world of
science and story, bringing readers into Madhulika’s mind and experience in a
way that demystifies breast cancer and offers new hope for those living with
it. Download and start listening now!
