    Let me start off by saying, I do not read auto biographies I don t read non fiction, and generally tend to stay away from real life, based on real life and reality of all kind I am a blissfully ignorant kind of person and completely proud of it Ms Jones contacted me to read her book, and as we had recently lost a family friend to breast cancer I felt the need to read it and share it with everyone I am really glad I took her up on her offer It is a heart warming, real life story It is completely graphic in its details and 100% honest It was sad, depressing and down right dark It was hopeful, full of love and completely inspiring The book takes the format of the author s online diary as she experiences all the ups and downs of juggling breast cancer, losing her boobies so sad , family life, bills, her husband and all the things that life threw at her You laugh with her, and cry with her I got goosies so many times my fianc thought he needed to switch off the aircon Such a well written account that made it really hard to stop reading It helped me open up my eyes It made me do the whole breast examination which I am ashamed to admit, I have NEVER done before If your young, ignorant and blissfully unaware of what life can throw at you, read it You need to wake up, just like I did Thank you for sharing your story with us Shelly As a side note I don t really know who out there follows me, and reads what I write If anyone should be on the South Coast of KZN on April the 20th please come and join us for the Annual Cansa walk It is from 5pm to 5am behind the Norwegian Settler s church at the sports grounds For reviews please check out my blog on

    I won this book from the Good Reads website.The book is written as Shelley Jones blog and diary she kept through her journey of being a breast cancer patient.It even has actual comments from her blog included, which to me often didn t add much to the story I found myself skipping most of those She is a hilarious writer, just read the letter to the reader in the book I laughed out loud in a lot of places, and then the next moment was crying my eyes out.I even had to put it down for a day because it touched me too deeply.This is the story of one woman s journey through the battleground of cancer It is NOTHING like any other cancer survivor s book that I have read to date This book tells the truth about the whole battle the money issues, fears, other people s reactions, and even the real pain when the doctor says You will feel a slight pinch The book also is extremely informative about all the procedures, tests, and medical terminology that a cancer diagnosis brings This should be handed out to all breast cancer patients I believe it would help a lot of other women going through the minefield of a cancer diagnosis.

    I won this book on goodreads Thanks Shelly s story is written from the heart It is an emotional read for me not because I ever had cancer but because I really identify with her She is a mother, wife and friend and it really shows what a caring but kick ass woman she is All three of her kids were born at the same time as mine were born and I had some of the same things happen in my life that have happened to her I really am enjoying this book This is a story that I think a lot of woman can identify with and a lot of woman will enjoy the style in which it is written Thanks Shelly

    The reason I gave this book 2 stars is because there were a lot of parts that I just had to skim over The book is written in a blog style where some of the posts are Shelly s and the rest are family, friends and supporters While it is wonderful that she had so much support throughout this awful battle, I didn t find that hearing from all those other people did very much for this book I did enjoy reading the posts from Shelly because it is her story and what cancer was to her I did learn a lot and discussed some of the procedures with my own Mother a cancer survivor herself While I was an adult when my Mother battled cancer, there were a lot of things I didn t know about When I asked her about the tissue expanders, she told me that yes indeed it was the most painful thing she ever experienced in her life I think this is a good book for women fighting breast cancer because it does tell you honestly what it will be like and she also gives a few helpful websites as well I would just skip all the other things.
