My Review:

I have known far too many people in my life effected by cancer over the last 20 years, including myself. I am a seven year cancer survivor, being diagnosed when I was 32 years old. The diagnosis obviously changed my life, but I was so glad to have my faith in Christ to help me through the journey, my family and friends, and many wonderful books that provided support as well. Recently, I had the opportunity to review a new release from Chicken Soup for the Soul - Hope and Healing for your Breast Cancer Journey.

Chicken Soup books are known for their inspirational stories and they certainly do not fall from this with this release. It is the perfect read for those just starting on the journey, in the midst of treatment or been in remission for a while. 

My favorite chapters were chapter eight (Start Writing!), and chapter four (Begin a Gratitude Journal). Though I did not have breast cancer, alot of the tips and stories in this book can be transferred to all cancer types. Each person has their own individual journey and this book can be read by all, including a person's support team members.

If you know of a friend or family member that is on their journey through breast cancer, this would be the perfect way to encourage them, or yourself. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
