Getting cancer is like a bomb going off in your life. Having chemotherapy can feel like another bomb. When faced with chemotherapy, you have many questions—but searching for answers on the internet can be overwhelming and pamphlets from your oncologist don’t begin to tell you all you need to know. In Braving Chemo, Harvard-educated physician and cancer survivor Beverly A. Zavaleta MD combines her medical expertise with a survivor’s insight to provide practical advice for both chemotherapy patients and cancer caregivers. This book will give you clear answers to your most urgent chemotherapy questions, such as: · How to keep your hair from falling out · What to eat, and how prevent nausea · How to face tough feelings such as fear of dying Braving Chemo is a valuable resource about what to expect during chemo, how to minimize the side effects and how to live life as normally as possible when life itself is on the line.

"The book is powerful for its original treatment of this difficult subject. Reading it is not a merely artistic experience--but also a healing and consoling o≠ the book would make an excellent gift for a friend with breast cancer, whether or not she is a poet."--Women Review of Books In her third collection of poems, Susan Deborah King bears witness to a soul's transformation in the wake of a breast cancer diagnosis and subsequent mastectomy. In the crucible of disfigurement and confrontation with mortality, a transpersonal figure emerges, a One-Breasted Woman, who is possessed of a powerful and passionate vulnerability. She raises up with outrage at the possible systemic causes of her disease. She holds the earth and beloved people close as she contemplates her end. She connects with the suffering of others. These poems are vivid with fear, heightened awareness, anger, tenderness, sorrow, playfulness, and even joy. Though the subject is illness, King's imagery often springs from other sources: the mythic dimension, science, or the natural world. From "Song Sparrow": Though his breast / has a black mark on it, / he throws his head back / and with quivering throat sends out his song / . . . "I am here! / This is who I am. / I am." The work in this collection is a testament to the possibility that songs of ecstatic, transcendent celebration can rise from the descent into a pit of life-threatening terror. Susan Deborah King, BA, Scripps Colle≥ MDiv, Union Theological Seminary; is the author of two other collections of poetry, Tabernacle: Poems of an Island, and Coven. Having also worked as a Presbyterian minister and psychotherapist, she now teaches creative writing and leads retreats on creativity and spirituality. For the writing and publishing of One-Breasted Woman, she received a grant from the George Family Foundation. The mother of grown twin daughters, King lives with her husband in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Great Cranberry Island, Maine.
