Written by a breast cancer survivor, "A Safe Place" fills a niche that other works on the subject have not. Focusing on the therapeutic value of journal writing, this book takes a fundamentally positive look at breast cancer and the personal growth that can come out of such a battle. While offering practical medical information, "A Safe Place" encourages a woman to start writing about her experiences, providing a private venue to explore feelings, confront fears, and regain peace and equilibrium in the midst of illness and the process of recovery. With a comprehensive resource guide and reading list, and inspiring quotations from other women who have shared this experience, "A Safe Place" is a valuable tool in the fight to become a survivor, both physically and psychologically.
