images4.jpegThis Sunday, Ruth Peltason will speak on her new book, I Am Not My Breast Cancer. Cosponsored by SHARE and Cancercare, The Y has planned this event with cancer patients and their friends and family in mind. Information will be available about local SHARE and Cancercare support groups.

Ruth Peltason was thirty-five when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer and in her late 40s when it returned. With a diagnosis that can be devastating, Peltason created an online community where women could talk about their deepest fears and share their feelings.

In her new book, Peltason weaves together women’s voices to create a guide for others, written with by ordinary women who have been there before. They talk about love & sex, hair loss & weight gain, being a mother and a daughter with cancer, and their voices are honest, spirited, and sometimes funny. Ruth Peltason is also co-author of Breast Cancer: The Complete Guide.
