The Roller Coaster: A Breast Cancer Story
This memoir traces a little over a year in the life of a forty-one-year-old breast cancer patient as she reflects critically on the loss of her breasts, her struggles as a patient and a person, and life on the other side of chemotherapy and radiation. In this book, the author, who is an English professor, addresses how writing and sharing her cancer story with the public is not only a form of self-treatment, but also crucial to one's survival.
