This book is a God send for women who have been diagnosed as having breast cancer. Diana Raab is a brave lady, who has fought cancer twice and won. Diana has written this eBook about her battles or in her words, her journey.

The book pomotes "writing" as a wellbeing therapy or writing to assist healing. The book is informative, inspirational and uplifting. Two words sum up this book; survival and courage. Diana is like a person who has escaped from a burning building, only to then go back inside (mentally). She has written this eBook to help others escape from that same nightmare. In sharing her journey in this book with others, Diana is extending the power of, the writing therapy technique once again; writing for Diana is a gift that keeps on giving. The feedback she gets must be uplifting, so please buy the book and leave a review.

The book emphasizes the importance of early breast cancer detection. Reading the first part of the book I began to appreciate just how breast cancer produces a rollercoaster of emotions, starting with those dreaded test results. And, I can see how therapeutic writing could help.

The is a good book with a positive self help message.

Diana Raab bares her soul walking the reader through her physically and emotionally painful journey fighting breast cancer. From her initial diagnosis of DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ) via mammogram (the only way to discover it early) through surgeries and recovery, each step of the way is described using her straightforward style combined with her journal entries and poetry written at the time.

Diana’s powerful poetry reveals the life changing experience she went through in a concise and easy to understand style. In as few as twenty words she paints a picture describing the very essence of her experiences. Cancer is not subtle and neither is the author.

Each chapter concludes with two or three questions on blank pages to encourage the reader’s own healing with words journaling. The hardback version is well suited for recording one’s thoughts and reactions to the prompts. I imagine the paperback version is as well.

I intend to give this book to a friend who is recovering from breast cancer surgery and chemo. I thought of my friend during the entire book and realized there was so much more that she likely went through than I was aware of at the time. I hope this book will help her adjust to life as a survivor.

The book is 151 pages of memoir, poetry and writing pages, with an additional 28 pages of valuable Appendices. Writing for wellness and healing is encouraged throughout the book with simple to follow instructions and additional prompts at the end.

This book would make a gentle gift for that special person in your life who may need another woman’s story to relate to. Or a gift for one’s self if traveling the breast cancer road.

I don’t often write reviews, but this book (and Diana’s work in general) has done so much to change my creative life that I feel compelled to share.

For many years I wrote poetry. Over time, family, work, and day-to-day distractions consumed my time. I’ll get back to writing one day, I always said. Fast forward 15 years. At 43 my cancer diagnosis floored me. I felt isolated & frightened, and yet vibrantly alive as well. I wanted to embrace my life, document the moments important to me, & empower my diagnosis to kindle the creative drive within me.

Through a mutual acquaintance, I was introduced to Diana, and had the honor of having lunch with her! That meeting changed everything. We talked about our lives, challenges, the creative process, and coping with illness. Before we parted she gave me a gift: a blank notebook.

Diana’s story, the notebook she gave me, and this very inspiring book have been the doorways that have led me to writing poetry again. This book is raw, honest, and so full of courage that I couldn’t put it down. Read cover to cover in one night, I have returned to this book many times to re-read a chapter, a poem, or simply to recalibrate my focus and inspiration.

With gratitude and appreciation. Highly recommended.
