An honest account about a woman with breast cancer. Even tho Janice doesn't really like the term brave to be used for her. I think she was very brave to refuse the chemo. I don't think thats something I could have done. I had no idea that it only increased your chances by about 5%. Thats not something you hear much, you just think if you get cancer, you get chemo. I was having sympathy pains when she was describing the reconstruction. I liked how we were given flashbacks to her childhood and all the random things that pop into her head at the wrong times. An interesting read. The bit at the end about her mum got me abit teary eyed also.
