JANUARY 3, 2018 _ A paperback edition of the acclaimed “Breast Cancer Surgery and Reconstruction: What’s Right for You,” is now available.
The book, by medical writer Patricia Anstett and photography by Kathleen Galligan, is unique, allowing women to talk about procedures and decisions they made. Reviews by leading medical groups, including cancer doctors, nursing organizations and library journals commend the book as helpful and insightful. Too many women rush through their decisions with insufficient information, studies show.
The book can be purchased for $26 at Amazon and is available at many public libraries.

Breast cancer survivor Julie Wright has set up The Pink Book Foundation to get a free copy of our book to women in need, cancer groups and others who can’t afford to buy it. It also is available to health, cancer and women’s groups that serve these communities.
