Library Journal Review: Sept 2013
Owner of a wine and food marketing and special events business, Young was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. She employs her skills as a traveler (studying guidebooks), event planner (making lists), businesswoman (noting the bottom line), and a human being (knowing when to be strong and when to ask for help), along with a healthy dose of humor, to cover the steps involved in approaching the disease and creating a plan to get through it. Lots of details and solid advice.
Literary R&R November 3, 2013
If you know anyone that is facing breast cancer, run, do not walk, and purchase this for them! Written by a survivor, using other survivors’ experience, and a healthy dose of humor, Ms. Young has written THE go-to book for breast cancer awareness. Anything, and everything, a patient needs to know is inside, and written in a direct, informative text, without the medical journal feel…..There is not enough positive I can say, except I plan on purchasing these and handing them out to local hospitals so that they may have this resource on hand. 5 out of 5 stars!
