Uplift: Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors

Barbara Delinsky

Washington Square Press,  May 2006

With Uplift, bestselling author Barbara Delinsky, whose life has been shaped by her mother's breast cancer as well as her own, created a resource she wished she'd had for herself during her own treatment: one that is filled with all the helpful advice that only women who have already been there can give us -- from tips on even the smallest details of daily life to inspiring personal anecdotes that amuse, comfort, and instruct. Here readers can find answers to all the questions they were afraid to -- or never even knew how to -- ask: What kind of deodorant can I use during radiation? Are there certain foods that really satisfy on treatment days? How do I address my surgery with my coworkers? Will I still feel feminine? And what about a sex life? Practical, warm, often funny, always reassuring, Uplift arms readers with the various means by which countless women diagnosed with breast cancer have faced their fears, survived their illness, and bravely gotten on with life and love, career and family. Originally published in 2001, this updated edition includes an additional chapter that follows up on the lives of the original contributors.
