A breast cancer diagnosis is one of the most challenging experiences a woman can face in her lifetime. The turbulence it causes ripples through her life and the lives of all those who love, care for, and depend upon her. Suddenly, all her attention and energy must be directed toward her own survival and recovery. Shouldering this burden can be crushing, but not if she does it differently. What does doing it differently look like? Breast cancer survivor Patryce Sheppard guides newly diagnosed women through the many stages—what she terms the dots—in the constellation from discovery through destiny. In this book, you will learn not only practical tips and information for not only surviving but thriving through these moments on the breast cancer journey, but the spirit, attitude, and habits of mind that can shape the journey into the path to discovering your deepest, most resilient self, and the shining destiny that will unfold before you when you do it differently.
