    Editorial Review

    Cartoonist Marisa Acocella Marchetto's graphic memoir about her battle with breast cancer is as bold, vibrant, and brave as she is--pumped full of color, the story leaps off the page and into your heart. Poignant and funny, this inspiring story is made all the more powerful by Marchetto's cartoons. Lucky for us, Marchetto agreed to create a cartoon just for Amazon.com customers. Check out her strip below. Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Breast Cancer D Day September 6, 2006
    Received book from long time twisted sister friend the day I was on my way to try and have this blasted arm pit drain removed. Age 53, tumor found on routine yearly mammogram (1 year 3 days since last) Tumor 1.1 centimeters, well differentiated, Positive Receptors both E & P, ask oncologist surgeon if he was piercing my nipple on the 4th plunged on the core biopsy. Afterwards, ask for a smilie face sticker, surgeon said he should have ones instead of saying "I gave Blood" say "I GAVE BOOB" I work for a printing company and designed a sticker, button & T-shirt.Something that existentially speaks more than a pink ribbon; I gave "flesh & blood."After initial surgery of tumor Segmental Mastectomy with Sentinel Node Biopsy, remove 4 lymph nodes, One was with cancer.Had to go back for the Wad of fat to be removed with additional 15 lymph nodes FULL AXILLARY DISSECTION... all of those were clear.YEA!As I await the next stages in this New World I found "Cancer Vixen" to be vastly informative and will require all of my supportive Nipple Pulling friends to read it.Thank you for sharing your emotional roller coaster ride through the horrid disease.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Grazie Marisa
    As touching as true stories can be andas funny as goods novels (or comic books!) can be....the secret of Mrs. Marchetto is to mix REAL life and its tragic aspects with unforgettable and unique humour ... the best book and the best author ever!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Shelley Christy (real name), Pittsburgh, PA
    I read about "Nordie's at Noon" from my weekly PEOPLE magazine subscription.I actually bought the book on vacation and could not put it down--it is a quick read, but so very powerful and inspiring.I admire these four ladies' courage and their stance not to be victims.They are true survivors and are an inspiration to anyone faced with any type of illness.I passed the book along to a friend who has breast cancer as well.When you read the book, you definitely feel like you know the four authors.I recommend this book to ALL woman!

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for all women
    I read the review of this book in People magazine, and was interested enough to buy it the next day.I was not disappointed-- this a wonderful book.Not only was it an interesting and well written chronicle of 4 women's fight with breast cancer, but it was educational as well. Reading first hand accounts of how breast cancer changed the lives of young women made I could relate to made me realize it's high time I knew what a BSE (Breast Self-Examination) was!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Live, Love, Laugh, Learn
    This book is an amazing story about the four women authors on their journey with breast cancer, God, family, and friends.I feel so much more enlightened and comfortable with the topic of breast cancer; I've grown tremendously from my experience reading the book.One of the mantra's for one of the authors is Live, Love, Laugh.My mantra has always been Live, Love, Laugh, Learn.I Learned a great deal from this book and believe it will help others Learn about friendship and one very important part of life no one can escape.Of course, there is a huge emphasis in the book on Living, Loving and Laughing.I gave a copy of this book to approximately 100 friends across the nation.I hope this story will help many people Learn more about their family and friends who are, or who will inevitably, Live, Love, and Laugh their way through breast cancer.My Live, Love, Laugh, Learn Campaign - "PASS IT ON!" I ask that anyone who reads this review to read this book.Then purchase several copies for others.Many people will better understand this life experience.If everyone simply buys two books and asks the people with whom they share the book to "pass it on," the number of people we can reach is incredible.

    1-0 out of 5 stars The View of a Medical Oncologist
    In my oncology practice, patients will often bring me articles or books on "alternative" medical therapies.I try to approach all of them with an open mind.One of the best chemotherapy agents ever developed is derived from the bark of the Pacific Yew tree.You never know where the next advance in medicine will come from.I tell my patients that I divide alternative medicines into three categories: known to help, known to harm, and not enough evidence to say one way or the other.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book and very well detailed
    I read a lot of comments here on Amazon about this book. I see very negative viewpoints. I take it that these negative viewpoints come from people who are extremely closed minded and stick with the "medical" viewpoint about cancer and such.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Adding selenium helps fight cancer
    I have great respect for Dr. Clark and her cancer fighting program. However, I feel it is important to add that the nutrient selenium is also important in fighting cancer. This was demonstrated dramatically in a large placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical study -- the most prestigious type of scientific study of nutrients and drugs -- which showed that people taking 200 micrograms (mcg) of selenium daily had only half the death rate from cancer as those given a placebo which did not contain selenium.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably informative!
    This is a spectacular book, even if you never get cancer! One of the very best parts is on Dr. Johanna Budwig and her amazing therapies. Although I have been studying natural and alternative health protocols for many years now, I had not yet heard of her work.Dr. Budwig was nominated for the Nobel Prize SEVEN times because of her amazing results in her biochemistry lab. and medical practice, using Organic Cold-pressed High Lignan Flaxseed Oil and Organic Cottage Cheese (or other high quality organic proteins).She cured DECADES worth of clients with her nutritional recipes, even those who had other degenerative diseases...NOT just cancer.Unfortunately, most Western governments hush-hushed her findings and did not allow this information to be made public, because it would take business away from big pharmaceutical companies!!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars How to Fight Cancer & Win
    This book contains an overview of the famous German Doctor Johana Budvig, and her amazing cure for cancer.Just the stuff American drugcompanies don't want you to know.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good advice, but please be sure to add supplemental selenium
    The cancer-fighting nutrient most proven to date is selenium. A daily supplement of 200 microgram of selenium, has been shown in a large placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical study -- the most prestigious type of scientific study of nutrients and drugs -- to cut the death rate from cancer in half.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book
    One of the best books I have read on alternative treatments. The chapters on Protocel were fantastic. Anyone contemplating using Protocel should definitely read this book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Informative----Easy to Read.
    The book itself is very educational, also, has a lot of information on titles of other good reads to look for as well as phone numbers and places to seek treatments.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Outsmart Your Cancer Reader Review
    Overall, I thought that the book presents a credible case for using alternative treatments for cancer although there are substantial areas where clarification is needed. The author, Tanya Harter Pierce, is not a doctor and states that the book is the result of extensive personal research carried out by herself after a family member was diagnosed with cancer.

    Is this a book to help out women who suffer from being misinformed about menopause or an advertisement for progesterone cream?Didn't help me at all, if anyone wants to buy it, it's yours but I don't recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Eye-Opener Sans The Wool
    Back-to-back, I've read this book and the other one by Dr. John Lee, "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Pre Menopause: Balance Your Hormones And Your Life From Thirty To Fifty."Although the one just mentioned is more pertinent to my age group, and both books cover much of the same ground, I chose to review this book because it seems to be more in-depth.Both books, however, are laden with valuable information for women of any age.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Informative
    This is the most informative and easy to read book I've ever owned. I couldn't put it down. It should be mandatory reading for all doctors involved in women's issues. I recommend it to all my friends. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    As CEO at accounting giant KPMG, Eugene O'Kelly was so immersed in his job that over thecourse of a decade, he managed to have lunch with his wife on weekdays just twice. His travelschedule was set 18 months out. Once, he was so obsessed with impressing a potential client that hetracked down the man's travel schedule, booked the seat next to him on a flight, schmoozed the guyall the way to Australia, landed the account, and flew immediately back to Manhattan. His Type-A ways vanished when, at age 53, a top neurosurgeon in New York told him he had late- stage brain cancer. "His eyes told me I would die soon. It was late spring. I had seen my last autumnin New York." [p.7] Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Meaningful message for all who read...
    Having just lost my own mother to Glioblastoma multiforme grade IV, I found this book comforting and relevant. It had a great message to share "take the time to tell those you love about the perfect moments you will remember about them". I have purchased a dozen copies since my first to send out to friends in memory of my own mother.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Must read for accountant!
    What an inspirational book! I read this book few days prior to a job interview with KPMG. Well good news is.. I got the job! but the message behind this book is "balance" and purpose of life. Life is too short and many people knew that, but we need a reminder once a while to put us into perspective again. Gene is a visionary behind KPMG and to lost someone like him is definitely a lesson to learn. As an accountant, we know how many hours we have to spend at work, but think it this way to balance it out.. treat your family like your client. They need as much time as your other clients need you too. I would recommend this book for any accounting major college students.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Courageous
    This book is phenomenal.Those with a Type A personality will certainly appreciate the approach the author took to put closure on his impending death.Since another reader had mentioned that Joan Didion's "The Year of Magical Thinking" was better, I had decided to read both books.I absolutely loved Chasing Daylight better although both books have value.

    Editorial Review

    People around the world have found inspiration in the story of Lance Armstrong--a world-class athlete nearly struck down by cancer, only to recover and win the Tour de France, the multiday bicycle race famous for its grueling intensity. Armstrong is a thoroughgoing Texan jock, and the changes brought to his life by his illness are startling and powerful, but he's just not interested in wearing a hero suit. While his vocabulary is a bit on the he-man side (highest compliment to his wife: "she's a stud"), his actions will melt the most hard-bitten souls: a cancer foundation and benefit bike ride, his astonishing commitment to training that got him past countless hurdles, loyalty to the people and corporations that never gave up on him. There's serious medical detail here, which may not be for the faint of heart; from chemo to surgical procedures to his wife's in vitro fertilization, you won't be spared a single x-ray, IV drip, or unfortunate side effect. Athletes and coaches everywhere will benefit from the same extraordinary detail provided about his training sessions--every aching tendon, every rainy afternoon, and every small triumph during his long recovery is here in living color.

    2-0 out of 5 stars trash
    we all know this story, but if you want to read a cocky, self absorbed version from lance's perspective pick this up. horribly written, some attempts are made at poeticism ("I keep riding, into the highest peering hills, up the pitch of a mountainside, where green leaves quiver in the cold sun") but overall i'd probably get more out of a 2 page summary of his life on wikipedia.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Inspirational!
    Lance provides a lot of insight into his life, who he is, and how he became the greatest cyclist in the world in this book!This book covers his life from birth to the 2nd Tour de France win.The dedication he has to his job (cycling) is so impressive.A truly inspirational story....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic- One of the best books I have ever read
    I must say that this is easily one of the best books I have ever read, and probably the most inspirational.It delves deep into the realms of the human spirit, against the worst of odds.Lance Armstrong isn't just the single greatest athlete of our generation, hes an American hero, and he beat cancer.Yes, he did not just survive, he defeated it, and proved it can be done.I have never had cancer, I have never fought against unbelieveble odds.This man has, and he tells his story in a remarkable, touching, and humane way.Fantastic Read. ...

    This book has been a lifesaver for me.I had breast cancer a year ago and if I had a question, I knew I could turn to the index and find the page that would have my answers.It put me at ease most of the time through a very scary experience.I have bought this book for a friend who just found out that she has breast cancer.She, too, have enjoyed the peace this book gives.It is very informative and interesting.I recommend this book to every lady who is told that she has, the scary words, "breast cancer".

    5-0 out of 5 stars Important information
    I bought this book for a relative who had breast cancer.This book helped her refine her questions about treatment as she met with physicians.It also gave her a much needed information about breast cancer.It was especially helpful in being very clear about what was known for sure about the disease and treatment and what was still unclear.I consider this book a must for anyone with breast cancer or with a family member or friend with breast cancer. ...

    A must for anyone recently diagnosed with cancer.Many Quacks have cancer cures.A cancer patient needs to be aware of not waisting their precious time on "snake oil" cures.This books information is well documented with legitimate major medical center and university studies.The information is also easily cross referenced with other doctors findings.I would advise anyone fighting cancer to implement the books recommendations.It certainly aided me in my successful recovery. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Another WHO book
    World Health Organization: Tumours of the Breast and Female Genital Organs (edited by Fattaneh A. Tavassoli and Peter Devilee) is the 4th in the Pathology and Genetics of Tumours series from the WHO. With an impressive set of multidisciplinary contributors from several continents, this book improves on previous books from that organization by representing a reasonable attempt towards consensus in their presentation of the various topics. The main strength of this book, as with others in the series, is that they are concise and emphasize the most salient points in each topic. While it is not meant to be an encyclopedic account of the various tumors, essential definitions, clinical findings, morphologic points, immunophenotypic variations and molecular and/or cytogenetic pathogenesis are well presented.This book does not resolve some of the more controversial issues in these fields (such as the prognostic significance of micropapillary patterns in ovarian serous borderline tumors or terminologic issues in intraductal breast proliferations), but at least provides another framework for further discussion. The illustrations are excellent and the text is well-supplemented with tables. Overall, I would recommend this book to trainees and practitioners alike ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not quite right

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent

    4-0 out of 5 stars Be sure to include selenium in your nutrition regimen
    I agree with the idea of fighting cancer with nutrition. However, I would like to note that the cancer-fighting nutrient most proven to date is selenium. A daily supplement of 200 microgram of selenium, has been shown in a large placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical study -- the most prestigious type of scientific study of nutrients and drugs -- to cut the death rate from cancer in half.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Magical Story of Love and Hope
    This is one of the most inspirational children's books I have ever read. The message is simple but powerful and an inspiration for all. It is part Pinocchio,part Pride of the Yankees, and it works. For anyone who has ever had a child go through any kind of serious illness, it is a wonderful reminder of how sometimes the smallest thing can suddenly reach out to that child and bring them back to you, and how you should never give up fighting. For those who have lost a child, it is a powerful lesson in love, hope and strength. For those whose lives have never been touched by serious childhood illness, it is a chance to reach out and hug your own kids and realize just how special each and every child is and how much they bless your life. It's all about believing, and the message comes through loud and clear. This book should be on every child's bookshelf, in every classroom and in every library. It is a story to read again and again. The illustrations are just perfect for the story, gentle and magical. Since the proceeds of this book go to charity, you are not only sharing the magic of The Boy of Steel with your own children, you are helping other children as well. Young or old, you will be touched by the inspirational story and the simple style of the author. It is a book I now proudly own, and my child, a survivor of serious childhood illness, is now 20. It is a wonderful reminder for me that I am one of the lucky ones -- truly blessed to have my son. He has read it, too. Read The Boy of Steel and share the message of love with others. It truly has touched my life. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars, not for believing this , but for the choice;
    Yes, much of Clark's work seems extreme, perhaps if mainstream medicine was a little more intellectually honest, we wouldn't need to go so far off the 'course'. For instance; When early detection is credited for longer lives, consider that in most cases, all of the 'extended' life is the time that the test was moved up,(if you took the test a year sooner, you lived an 'extra' year), ie; no real increase. Consider that many medical tests,(biopsies and mammographies), actually force open 'scar'-sealed cancer cells that never would've entered the bloodstream if left alone. Consider that many types of cancer are known by your doctor to kill you at the same point in your painful chemo and radiation treatments as you would've died , without pain, if not treated at all, yet they do their best to keep that fact unknown to their patients. Consider how the medical establishment at large claim that diet has minimal effect on helping patients,(have you ever eaten hospital food)? Ifphysicians want us to stop patronizing the 'kooks', then they had better start learning, and passing on, the truth. (Add to Mr Lewandoski): You confuse the mean, median, and mode. If you remove infant deaths and deaths from formerly untreatable war injuries from the "average age" of death, the population often lived aslong as,(and in better shape than), our current 'averages', and without all the supposed help of our modern hospitals and nursing homes. There was never an historical time when the average man was simply dropping dead at thirty, unless he was shot.

    1-0 out of 5 stars 1:8000 v. 1:2
    In response to the eloquent review written by the esteemed, Corey F.Dyok.Sir, in your review you have proposed that the cancer rate has skyrocketed from 1:8000 to 1:2... brilliant!In a brief review of the history of cancer for the lesser informed.Cancer has been documented in the literature for over 5,000 years.Over the past 10,000 years, life expectancy remained at 30-years until the past 150 years when life expectancy dramatically rose to 70-years."During the past 150 years, there has been a progressive elimination of infectous diseases as a major cause of death, and because most children now survive to reproductive age a sudden population explosion has ensued"[Cairns, John].So, plain and simply, diseases of old age occur frequently because we now have an aged society.And the diseases of old age are cardiovascular disease and cancer. 1-0 out of 5 stars Is this lady for real?
    People will believe anything.This book is full of proposperous claims, and scientifically impossible devices.The idea of a 9V battery "zapping" parasited deep in body tissues is most ridiculase.Last time I checked, the skin was quite an insulator. The book has no hard facts to back up all the claims.Where are the many people that are cured from these cancers and even HIV/AIDS.There are none, because the only diaganosis cured were tested by some hocus pocus in the quacks private practice.No medically diagonosed cases have ever been cured by this money grubbing con aritist.The book tries to generate fear about being contaminated by everyday living.The cure, send money for off the wall products and supplements with no quality control packing.If you would by the brooklin bridge, this book is for you. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for everyone since 1 out of 3 people will face a diagnosis of Cancer!
    This book took me through a whole range of feelings!From anger andoutrage to joy and elation. Anger because of what we, the average consumers, have allowed a once compassionate industry of healing to become because of our lack of personal responsibility! Outrage at Big Pharma and Corporate Medicine for using personal tragedies to fill their deep pockets with billions of $$$ and outrage that they can continue to "deceive the nations" with their "sorceries" on a daily basis! Joy and elation because by the end of the book, I came away feeling impowered with knowledge and information, hope and confidence that I truly can understand and overcome [should I be one of the three] this most dreaded of diseases: Cancer.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Everybody - Please Read This Book!
    So many books about health-related issues are full of medical jargon and difficult physiological and chemical concepts.Cancer - Step Outside the Box is amazingly clear and easy to understand.The author has done a brilliant job of breaking down "doctorese" into concepts and language that make sense to non-doctors.His description of the very complex Krebs Cycle (through which cells take in and use nourishment) should be understandable for any eighth-grader.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Cancer Book I've Read
    Ty Bollinger taught me many things about cancer I didn't know.Coming from most people, this would be a mild compliment.Coming from me, it is somewhat more than that.You see, I have studied natural cancer treatments every day for the last eight years.I've written two books and 100 newsletters on the subject.I've given 25 workshops around the country on Beating Cancer-Gently.I "coach" about 10-12 people a week on the phone.They are people who have read one of my books.I coach them on the details of "what I would do if I were them."

    5-0 out of 5 stars A New Approach, A New Attitude
    I found this book inspirationally.Not because the author beat the odds in surviving a cancer considered "terminal" by all of his physicians, but because he did it by rationally setting out to explore all of his options and did not just let the "experts" tell him what to do.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A must-read for brain tumor sufferers
    Dr. Williams' book is a blow by blow record of how he guided his own survival in spite of his doctors and the constraints of the FDA in overcoming a glioblastoma.His program was well-researched and gives excellent suggestions for options in taking an active part in one's own survival.Should be read by all cancer patients, particularly those suffering with brain tumors.He also published an annual online update of the information contained in the book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Bible of GBM
    I bought this book when my dad was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) in late 2005.At first I was skeptical of his harsh criticism of the medical institution as a whole, but as my dad's surgery, chemo and radiation went on, I realized how 100% RIGHT ON Dr. Williams is in this book.You MUST buy this if you know someone suffering from this agressive form of brain cancer.Our family purchased three copies so each of us could have their own for reference.If you don't buy any other book about GBM, buy this one.Dr. Williams has survived ELEVEN years from diagnosis with a type of brain cancer that has an average survival time of 14 months. ...
