Gail Konop Baker was a runner, yoga practitioner, doctor's wife, and lifelong subscriber to Prevention magazine. But right before her forty-sixth birthday, she heard the words that would forever change her life: Just to be safe, I think we should biopsy. It was the beginning of her yearlong battle with breast cancer and its fallout - a battle that would upstage any midlife crisis she'd worried was waiting in the wings. Cancer Is a Bitch is her raw, moving, and funny account of juggling midlife, motherhood, and marriage with a rogue boob - and, ultimately, triumphing. It will, as author Lolly Winston said, ''crack [you] up one minute, then bring [you] to tears the next.''

A good funny book. Not one I'd read again, but still good. Loved the title and cover artwork, but the author just seemed like she had alot of issues with her husband. At least that's what I personally saw. Read full review

I am struggling with this one as I'm going through cancer and wanted to get some insight into battling the disease. I didn't get it from this book. Unfortunately maybe another time and place, I may enjoy it but not at the moment. Read full review
