I Flunked My Mammogram!: What You Need to Know about Breast Cancer NOW!
B2Z Publishing, Incorporated, Jul 1, 2001 - Health & Fitness - 194 pages
The wealth of medical information available to breast cancer survivors is sometimes misleading, and often far too complex for the average patient. There has long been a need for an easy-to-read yet thorough "breast cancer primer" that could explain the disease in a way that the vast majority of breast cancer survivors could grasp. This was the objective behind "I Flunked My Mammogram!" "I Flunked My Mammogram!" was written by Dr. Ernie Bodai, a nationally renowned breast cancer surgeon who pioneered the U.S. Postal Service Breast Cancer Research Stamp Program. (The image of the stamp has been authorized by the Postal Service for display on the front cover of the book). To date, more than $25 million has been raised from stamp sales for crucial breast cancer research. "I Flunked My Mammogram!" is the first installment in a two-part cancer education series published in conjunction with Dr. Bodai's nationwide "Screen Together ... Live Together" initiative to promote cancer screening among partners. The second book, "I Flunked My PSA!: covers prostate cancer. "Our objective is simple," says Dr. Bodai. "We want to help each cancer survivor fully understand the disease they now confront, and then to outline the myraid treatment options that my be open to them on their own personal road to recovery."
