Judy Short had a root canal in the morning and learned that afternoon that she had flunked her mammogram. She describes it as "Quite possibly one of the worst days of my life."
Everyone wants to meet Judy's Killer Bunny (K.B.)! He is the visualization aid that she used to help in her battle with breast cancer. Judy envisioned that her white blood cells were Killer Bunnies, attacking and eating the cancer cells. Then, since they were rabbits, they reproduced quickly¡ªwhich is the goal for the body's immune system, for white cells to reproduce and effectively fight off disease. Judy's visualization took physical form as you can see from the cover photo.
This isn't just another woman's story about breast cancer¡ªit is about hoping and coping and maintaining a positive outlook and sense of humor throughout the experience.
Judy shares the practical insights she learned during her mastectomy, breast reconstruction and chemotherapy. She frankly addresses the gambit of emotions from anger and fear to hope and defiance.
More than 185,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year¡ªthat is one in eight. This book is for them and for all cancer patients,eir families and their friends.
