What to do, feel, manage? 36-years-old, 3 months pregnant, on a break from her PhD research in Israel, Sue Lawrence found a lump in her breast on her honeymoon. The lump turned out to be breast cancer. She lost the breast and kept the baby. Advised to start chemotherapy as her pregnancy progressed, Sue delivered Elona prematurely, her body’s reaction to the impact of treatment. Sue’s response to her experiences as a newly wed, new mom, and breast cancer patient was recorded in her journal over an 8-year period. “Raw” and “unedited,” it is the meat of her book.
