The Breast Cancer Checklist
I just finished the cover on what I think is an important book. The Breast Cancer Checklist a book for those undergoing treatment for breast cancer. My friend/colleague, Fern Reiss, is a breast cancer surviver. She is also a prolific author, having written The Publishing Game series, and several other books. She wrote this book to be the resource she wished she had when she was undergoing the ordeal of dealing with breast cancer herself.
This book is full of practical advice like “make a dental appointment” and “get vaccinated” prior to starting chemo. You see, you can’t do those things during or right after chemo as your immune system is compromised. The book is full of really good, practical advice.
I’ve known Fern for many years (and I have designed all her recent book covers). She is a smart (Harvard grad), organized woman. She meets challenges head-on and this is what she did with breast cancer. And she has turned her experience into something extremely positive. She has written a book that will take so much of the anxiety and uncertainty out of the process for women who face what she faced. She has made their road less frightening and overwhelming.
