How to Survive a Year of Breast Cancer Treatments written by my patient Dr. Ellen Blomerth is a MUST READ for any woman recently diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as those who are at higher risk due to a family history. Dr. Blomerth did a phenomenal job covering most aspects of breast cancer treatment, both conventional and natural therapies …soup to nuts. I found it to be very comprehensive and informative. It is a practical guide for the layperson and easy to understand. I particularly like her format. On the left side of the page is her personal experience and the opposite side a list of valuable tips. It is worth purchasing the book for the resources and references alone. Where Dr. Blomerth is both a physician and the patient, she offers insight where others have failed. Like any life-threatening chronic disease, one needs to ask the right questions to get the right answers. Dr. Blomerth helps you with that too. Lastly, I found this book to be a fast read. There is not too many “how to books” that you can’t put down once you start reading. This book could assist in saving a person’s life while improving the quality of life during cancer treatment.
