When this unbelievable news hit the wires, everyone began seeking the attention of the renowned author, Catherine Doughty, MS, CCHI or the Cat as she affectionately likes to be called to discover the science behind this Earth-shattering new award winning book. According to Doughty, it is the simplicity – no scholarly science, just pure scientific methodology and remarkable craftsmanship. It started with the most shocking news a person could ever hear which is, “You have cancer!” Once the disbelief wore off, the questions started to surface, “Where does a person start to unravel this mystery?”
Once you have heard, “You have cancer!” The first thing that needs to be realized is a fact of fundamental importance, and that is uncertainty. Because it means breaking away from all of the ordinary predispositions of thought you were living with and reconstructing a new phase of your life. You also need to give yourself some room to understand the absolutely fresh new scale of values which the prism of uncertainty presents to you. After you get a hold of uncertainty as the true reality for everyone, it is the sexiest way to live and, every day you will have a rocking hot good time!
In the beginning, don’t imagine that you can assimilate a breast cancer diagnosis, what you will or won’t accept in the treatment planning stages and all that it contains in one or two clinical visits with your surgeon, oncologist or other subject matter experts, or in one or two readings. You need a strategy to navigate the medical maze and fast. You should review your reports and go over your options again and again with your physicians until you have thoroughly grasped the magnitude of the treatment plans you are willing to consent to because it is you who will live with the aftermath of every clinical decision carried out.
“I was the other girl, not the girl being told, “You have cancer!” “I never in a million years dreamed I would be diagnosed with breast cancer.” Just to give you some background, breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2012:
* About 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
* About 63,300 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be diagnosed (DCIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
* About 39,510 women will die from breast cancer.
The book is an accounting of my personal experience with breast cancer. What I did to emerge cancer free, and look absolutely beautiful. One thing my training as a Director of Diagnostic and Interventional Imaging and a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt within the healthcare industry taught me is that imaging, pathology and data are pivotal components in organizing the decision making process when it comes to a breast cancer diagnosis. I have condensed the subject matter into the smallest compass possible because, as everyone knows who has fallen into what I call the “Cosmic Cancer Bunny Hole,” conciseness, tool sets for clinical discussions with physicians, and precision in treatment scenario planning is of the greatest assistance in decision making.
The book was designed with the principles and elements for success, in response to the requests I received from all the cancer patients I have voluntarily coached. So often, they had been terrified, crying for days and weeks at a time and they all had the same question, “Where do I begin to unravel this, and where do I start?” Hence, the birth of the book, Breast Cancer! You’re kidding…right? Living Life Through The Prism Of Uncertainty And Having A Good Time!
You will be on the edge of your seat with every single word in this book. It captures it’s readers from beginning to end, and makes them want to live their life through the prism of uncertainty.
