Product description

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.

Review quote

""The Silver Lining "reflects the experience of a remarkable woman, undergoing what is sadly an all too common journey. The challenges faced are honestly, yet compassionately shared, often with humor and always with grace. The lifelines and wisdom remind readers that at the end of this expedition there is growth and hope. The breathtaking photos reinforce the beauty that can come from pain. This book is an extraordinary gift for all who have been touched by breast cancer."--Judith A. Paice, PhD, RN, director, Cancer Pain Program Division, Hematology-Oncology, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
