From the Author

In A Moment’s Notice:A Psychologist’s Journey with Breast Cancer“>In A Moment’s Notice: A Psychologist’s Journey with Breast Cancer Finally, I have finished my book about my eleven-year journey with breast cancer. When I was going through treatment I wanted to read someone else’s story, but could not find a book that talked about the ups and downs of treatment and how this disease drastically as well as subtlety changes your life and the lives of those around you. I read thousands of articles, and medical reports, but at that time, I could not find a single book that would talk to me about what it was like. I have now written that book and you can order it now.

    I am on my second breast cancer journey-first one in 2001 DCIS Stage 1; second in 2013 Invasive Breast Cancer Stage 2b, metastasized to lymph nodes. Two totally different cancers! Now that I am no longer in survivor mode since I have finished treatment, I am left with a flood of emotions – fear, confusion, fear, sadness, fear, grief and, oh yeah, did I mention fear!? Trying to make sense of all this is looking pretty impossible. I’m not sure how to move forward. Robin, your book sounds like it may hold some answers…I hope so. I’m looking forward to reading it, whether I win it or not. Bless you for sharing your story so others like me can benefit.


    • Arlene, what a journey you are on. A cocktail of emotions. Good luck with the book win. In the meantime, watching The Wizard of Oz might help explore your emotions. The Lion is the most courageous of all. Even though fear abounds right really are courageous even though you don’t feel it!

    After having completed my primary treatment for Stage IIIc Invasive Lobular Cancer just before Thanksgiving last year, I was told in March that I now have metastatic disease to the bone, and have thus crossed over the bridge into Stage IV. It’s a totally different world here, having to face lifelong treatment…and suddenly, you become every early stage breast cancer patient’s worst nightmare. I call it “falling off the Pink Pedestal”, as a cure, at least for now, is not possible. I welcome all books that face the challenges of being a breast cancer warrior head on – I hope I get the opportunity to read yours.

    Namaste, Christine


    • Christine, yes I could feel the clutch in my throat hearing your story. Every patient’s worst nightmare has probably “understated” the contagion. I wish you well on your journey and hopefully you will become the owner of the book….you have clear experience of title …In a Moment’s Notice. Robin
