Although more and more men and women are surviving breast cancer, it is still a very frightening diagnosis, and your life is absolutely turned upside down when you are told you have breast cancer.

I want both men and women who read this book to understand that although its not easy, you have to maintain a positive attitude about your diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis and fight it every day. You can never give up. Lastly, although our lives will never be the same, as you will read in this book, there are tons of breast cancer survivors out there.
