BOOK REVIEWS

Live Well Beyond Breast Cancer is a candid journey through one woman’s experience with diagnosis, treatment, and survival of breast cancer. Ms. Wilms writes with compassion, honesty, and transparency about her experience with a terrifying diagnosis. She encourages women to pay attention to their bodies and their inner voice. While medicine and technology make diagnosing cancer much more accurate sometimes cancer efficiently hides. Ms. Wilms discovered her own cancer by noticing and paying attention to changes in her body even though a mammogram indicated everything was normal. Upon diagnosis, Ms. Wilms leads the reader through her journey of feelings, fears, treatment options, medical teams, procedures, and recovery ever mindful that each cancer journey is unique and that every woman must make decisions that are right for her. Ms. Wilms also discusses the power of a gratitude practice, self-advocacy, healthful eating, and positivity. This is a book that is powerful to the woman who is facing this challenge, those that are in the process of treatment, those that are in recovery and those that support women who are, or have been, down this path. A difficult topic with a very hopeful message.

I just finished reading Live Well beyond Breast Cancer. An open and honest look at a journey from diagnosis through treatment and recovery. As a fellow cancer warrior, I understand how sharing stories can be supportive and this book does just that. I would highly recommend this book to a newly diagnosed patient or their family members to know you are not alone and you really can get back to a life you love.

Birgitte Wilms writes with a candid honesty about the ordeal of living through breast cancer, and the unfolding of surviving. Her story shows that while each person has their own journey, we are all here to support each other, and hearing another’s story makes one feel less alone, less afraid, and more positive on what can happen. From her diving expeditions to her cancer recovery, Birgitte brings her gratitude practice to the forefront, plus adding adoptions, and continuing life during and after cancers, she has an inspiring story to share, and so thankful to share it with those who need her promising words.

Even though this book’s title suggests an audience of those who have, or survived, breast cancer, I would highly recommend it for families and friends; it is an excellent insight into the struggles, mindset, and journey of a loved one who is stricken by this terrible disease. Additionally, Ms. Wilms’ chapters on living life to the fullest and following your dreams are an inspiration to all, not just those who have had the misfortune of staring cancer in the face.

Miss Wilms, THANK YOU for this beautifully written and deeply passionate read! This book is written from the heart in hopes of truly giving others strength and hope, regardless of where they are in their journey. I would also recommend that friends and family of cancer patients read this, so that you can better support those who are living this journey. This book is truly a gift!
