My Healing from Breast Cancer
This work provides a mental and emotional account of a doctor's survival from breast cancer which addresses not only how to deal with aspects of this disease, but also what is required for breast healing. It explores the negatives and positives of types of treatment, and looks into the causes, including some preventable ones, of breast cancer; examines the cultural and political dysfunctions that contribute to the growing incidences of breast cancer, and offers a program for preventing or healing it.
