Cancer Fabulous Diaries

ReThink teamed up with young breast cancer survivor Sylvia Soo to create a first-of-its-kind resource for young women going through breast cancer: Cancer Fabulous Diaries.

 

 

Cancer Fabulous Diaries offers practical advice and important coping techniques from young survivors as well as a variety of health care experts. It also offers lively, surprising, and completely absorbing musings by Sylvia and other young survivors on single life, love, marriage, best friends, babies, clothes, work, apartment moves, late dinners . . . and what happens to all that when you get breast cancer. One part inspirational memoir, one part practical handbook, Cancer Fabulous Diaries documents the journey from diagnosis to recovery.
