Women need to take an active role in their cancer treatment, not just go in blindly.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Cancer does not discriminate –no matter how healthy, young or rich you are.
Christine Egan was a health nut, yoga devotee and mom on the go when she discovered a lump in her breast.
“I wanted to share my story with details about my cancer journey so others wouldn’t be so scared about what is ahead,” Egan said.
Egan, a certified health coach and self-described cancer warrior, chronicles her one-year unthinkable journey to wellness and removes the fear out of a terrifying diagnosis in “The Healthy Girl’s Guide to Breast Cancer.”
Part memoir and part practical guide, Egan details the traditional and non-traditional treatments she underwent and empowers women to take control of their treatment by becoming the CEO of their own body.
“I am about encouraging women to gather information and decide which treatment works best for them –not for their doctor,” Egan said. “Treatment decisions need to be made from a place of knowledge and empowerment, not fear. Women need to take an active role in their cancer treatment, not just go in blindly.”
