Lump to Laughter : Breast Cancer…Breast cancer is fast growing into a major scourge for women in India. Our
traditional ethos prevents women from accessing health care unless they have
reached a very high level of disability or suffering. Even among educated
women, there is a dearth of awareness on the early detection and risk factors
of breast cancer. An important fact is that the earlier the cancer is detected and
treated, the better the chances of a lifetime cure.
Lump to Laughter is not just a medical book giving facts on breast cancer.
This book is an account of the journey of women with breast cancer and their
emotions during different phases of treatment described with much grace and
respect. It narrates the experiences of the author with her patients. It conveys
optimistic reality, delivers hope and inspiration supported by medically
validated information, leaving the reader empowered and courageous to face
life and its uncertainties.
