Journalist Dina Rabinovitch had just turned 40 when was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2004.
At that point she didn't know a thing about the disease.
By the time of her death in autumn 2007, she was an expert.
Her experience of the condition and its treatment, from diagnosis through mastectomy to remission and reoccurrence is recounted in this down-to-earth memoir, covering everything from trialling the last anti-cancer drugs to what to wear that's stylish after surgery.
Warm, lively, at times irreverent, Rabinovitch's brave story of juggling a hectic career and a large, extended family while living - and dying - with cancer is essential reading.
