From the Publisher:
As a healthy, happy thirty-nine-year-old mother with no family history of breast cancer, being diagnosed with the disease rocked Hollye Jacobs?s world. Having worked as a nurse, social worker, and child development specialist for fifteen years, she suddenly found herself in the position of moving into the hospital bed. She was trained as a clinician to heal. In her role as patient, the healing process became personal.| |Exquisitely illustrated with full-color photographs by Hollye?s close friend, award-winning photographer Elizabeth Messina, The Silver Lining is both Hollye?s memoir and a practical, supportive resource for anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer. | |In the first section of each chapter, she describes with humor and wisdom her personal experience and gives details about her diagnosis, treatment, side effects, and recovery.| |The second section of each chapter is told from Hollye?s point of view as a medical expert. In addition to providing a glossary of important terms and resources, she addresses the physical and emotional aspects of treatment, highlights what patients can expect, and provides action steps, including:| |What to do when facing a diagnosis|How to find the best and most supportive medical team|What questions to ask|What to expect at medical tests|How to talk with and support children|How to relieve or avoid side effects|How to be a supportive friend or family member|How to find Silver Linings | |Looking for and finding Silver Linings buoyed Hollye from the time of her diagnosis throughout her double mastectomy, chemotherapy, radiation, and recovery. They gave her the balance and perspective to get her through the worst days, and they compose the soul of the book.| |The Silver Lining of Hollye?s illness is that she can now use the knowledge gleaned from her experience to try to make it better for those who have to follow her down this difficult path. This is why she is sharing her story. Hollye is the experienced girlfriend who wants to help shed some light in the darkness, provide guidance through the confusion, and hold your hand every step of the way.| |At once comforting and instructive, realistic and inspiring, The Silver Lining is a visually beautiful, poignant must-read for everyone who has been touched by cancer.
