Your Indispensable Guide to Breast Health. In their brand-new book, a follow-up to their popular 2007 release The Empty Cup Runneth Over, co-authors Cindy Papale-Hammontree and Sabrina Hernandez-Cano, RD, NC, CDE, have once again created a must-read for everyone affected by breast cancer by gathering an incredible group of experts and survivors, updating contents, and adding several chapters to inform readers about the latest treatment options. As noted by Gail Ironson, M.D., Ph.D. in the Foreward, "The terrific thing about this book is that it covers multiple topics, and does so in a readable, interesting way - enabling us to be better informed about how to cope, what to expect, and how to make wise treatment decisions. It will also help you discuss options with medical personnel." Miami Breast Cancer Experts has also received rave reviews from well-known critics like Vince Papale, colon cancer survivor and former NFL football player upon whose life the 2006 film Invincible was based. Notes Papale, "As you read through the book Miami Breast Cancer Experts and experience the compelling and courageous stories of the survivors, you will certainly find out that the savior is yourself first. To me invincibility is the synergy of mind, body and spirit and these women have truly proven themselves to be Invincible " Anne Hemingway, RN, BSN, MS and niece of Ernest Hemingway raves, "This book is a smorgasbord of intelligent essays on every aspect of breast cancer. Everyone - nurses, doctors, and people dealing with the disease for the first time will find chapters of this book helpful." Co-authors Cindy Papale-Hammontree and Sabrina Hernandez-Cano state,"We saw very close-up and personal how critical it is to stay on top of the latest details, particulars, discoveries, and facts about surviving a cancer diagnosis. The faster the detection, the better the chances of recovery and survival. Since the launch of our first edition, research has emerged with new scientific evidence, explanations, and perspectives on the prevention and treatment of Breast Cancer. Thus, we've added new advances including the latest treatment of chemotherapy and radiation; the latest research and state-of-the-art techniques on topics such as plastic and reconstructive surgery; key new topics such as fat grafting, thermography, pain management, and a chapter written by an oncology nurse. We also delve into delicate subjects such as money and death in response to feedback from readers, and new scientific evidence on super foods in an updated nutrition chapter. There's even a Bariatric chapter to inform women about their options in the case of obesity and chapters that address the physical, emotional, and mental health of women like exercise, yoga, and mind/spirit healing.
