Adventures of a One-Breasted Woman
"Miss Cummings, you have highly suspicious micro-calcifications in your left breast." ~ pg. 3
No woman wants to hear those words at the age of 47 years old. Within a month, Susan had a mastectomy. Even though there is a 99% chance of a recurrence, how do you move on after that? Through words, Susan Cummings goes through the emotions from finding faults to sweating through future mammograms.
Through a steady process of healing and recovery, Susan reclaimed her moxie. In Adventures of a One-Breasted Woman, she shared experiences over the span of a few years that helped change her life, including drawings that are displayed in the book. I thank the author for sharing her honest story. In the midst of her emotions and fears, there are laugh-out-loud moments that remind us laughter really is the best medicine.
I recommend this memoir to other women who have experienced cancer treatments and to their loved ones. It will also inspire those who struggle with body image issues. There aren't other memoirs available like this one. It takes a brave, courageous and determined woman to survive life after cancer. Susan, you did it! Thanks for writing this good book to inspire others.
