Take Off Your Party Dress: When Life's Too Busy for Breast Cancer

by Dina Rabinovitch
£7.99   paperback  Simon & Schuster Ltd (2007)

Take Off Your Party Dress: When Life 'In a world that doesn't do scar-chic, just what do you wear when you're one-breasted, or no-breasted? In my post-hospital weeks I'm not able to life my arm so clothes that go over the head are out of the question. I phone Vogue to ask their fashion editor for advice.'
 
When Dina Rabinovitch was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 she didn't know a thing about the disease. Today she's an expert. Her experience of the condition and its treatment, from diagnosis through masectomy to trialling drugs so new their side effects aren't even documented, is a rollercoaster ride through the medical and emotional ups and downs of the disease that is the most common cancer affecting women in the UK today.
 
Warm, lively and entertaining, Rabinovitch's spirited memoir of juggling a hectic career and a large, extended family while adjusting to the changes that cancer brings makes essential reading. This moving account of one woman's determination and courage - and her refusal to submit to a reduced life - is an inspiration to anyone who has ever faced adversity.
