Synopsis

Silver Lining A Supportive and Insightful Guide to Breast Cancer by Hollye Jacobs

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer at age thirty-nine, Hollye Jacobs-a pediatric and adult palliative care nurse with graduate degrees in bioethics and child development-started a blog to keep family and friends informed. It soon evolved into a daily must-read for thousands of women worldwide. Now, in a graceful, exquisitely illustrated work with full-color photographs by award-winning photographer Elizabeth Messina, Jacobs offers an informative, therapeutic guide for people who have been diagnosed with the disease. Part personal memoir, part professional guide, The Silver Lining is the book that Jacobs wished she'd had when she began her fight with cancer. She covers what every patient can expect as they go through their specific treatment and teaches other big issues, such as nutrition and how to talk to children about illness. While the book is brimming with action steps to help negotiate each phase of treatment and recovery, every chapter concludes with Silver Linings -the sources of inspiration and perspective that buoyed Jacobs through her own journey and that, taken together, comprise the heartbeat of the book. The Silver Lining will be the manual for breast cancer patients and their loved ones.
