Cancer is never wanted or planned for, but it can be conquered by regular people.

Many voyages are planned for months with excitement: a couple hauls their young children to Disney World for the first time, five college roommates stuff themselves and their bathing suits into an old sedan for a spring break trip, new empty-nesters escape to the west for their first vacation alone in decades. And then there’s “Breast Cancer: The Unplanned Journey.”

Ten years ago, Beverly Stacy Dittmer was living a happy, seemingly healthy life in Texas. Her marriage was thriving, and her children and grandchildren made her proud. But when the doctor said the word “cancer,” her beautiful life was turned upside down. She was about to embark on a journey no one ever plans.

Dittmer’s daily journal from her year-long battle with breast cancer became the basis for her book, “Breast Cancer: The Unplanned Journey.” She writes in detail about the struggles she faced both physically and emotionally, and offers practical advice to anyone who is, loves or treats someone fighting a life-threatening disease.

“Everyone, I hope, by reading my book, can better understand what a breast cancer patient goes through,” Dittmer said. “Cancer is never wanted or planned for, but it can be conquered by regular people.”
