Fears of recurrence and death, challenges to femininity, the imposing medical establishment with its often conflicting treatment options, the bewildering array of alternative methods and theories, the search for emotional support and the fear of losing new-found friends to the disease - these are the issues e! ! ach breast cancer patient faces in her own way. In 'Examining Myself' Musa Mayer shares a very personal odyssey that offers invaluable information and support about a disease that touches us all.
