ERMA BOMBECK

I DO NOT KNOW NOR HAVE I EVER MET the ten women who authored this book. But we share a common bond. All of us were watching our prime-time lives pass by when a voice announced, "We interrupt this life to bring you cancer." We didn't even have time to turn the dial.

I have read a hundred books on breast cancer -- war stories of women who did battle with the most frightening adversary in their lives. But Breast Cancer? Let Me Check My Schedule! is different. These are the personal stories of ten women, all over thirty, who pursue careers outside their homes. They were part of a project conducted by McCarthy Medical Marketing and Innovative Medical Education Consortium when they discovered that these women reacted differently to cancer than other women. The way they accepted their diagnosis, the decisions they made, their approach to therapy, and the way they coped all reflected their experience in the workplace.
