A Breast Cancer Journey: Living It One Step at a Time is a work of non-fiction in the health issues, social issues, and personal memoir subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience owing to some explicit medical descriptions and a candid discussion of sex and personal relationships. Penned by author Jennifer A Douglas, this heartfelt and beautifully honest work documents the author’s struggle with breast cancer from a stage zero diagnosis and the unexpected hardships, diagnostic trials, and difficulties she encountered. It also features the tales of other breast cancer patients at various stages of their treatment whom she encountered on her journey.
Author Jennifer A Douglas has crafted a fascinating and informative insight into the world of modern breast cancer, a field we often consider so advanced that it might not seem like a ‘problem’ anymore. But this is far from the case, and the complexities of the healthcare world are well explained in Douglas’s tender and honest recollection of her own experiences and those of others. One of the things I enjoyed most about the work was the narrative skill of the author, which makes it feel as though you’re sitting down for a coffee with a wise friend who is willing to share her heart with you. In doing so, the work becomes a really accessible read that would serve well as a support book for friends and family surrounding cancer patients as well as the patients themselves. Overall, A Breast Cancer Journey is an excellent read and one that those who need it are very likely to treasure and benefit from immensely.
