Having heard both Dr. Nagarsheth's lecture and the performance of the NED rock band at the annual Ovarian Cancer National Alliance conference in July, I was very eager to follow up by reading his book. He approaches his writing from the perspectives of both a gynecologic oncologist and a musician - what a unique combination! The book motivated me to return to my piano playing, something I had let go since my diagnosis. He writes from the perspective of a doctor and an artist: He "gets" it and is able to synthesize his facts, thoughts, and feelings in a way that makes sense to me. It is a very readable, engaging book, patient-oriented, and filled with love, hope, and dedication to his patients.
I highly recommend it and have purchased it for both my local gynecologic support groups.

No one really knows what causes breast cancer. No one really knows if this will come back. Telling me about someone you know who died young from breast cancer.

I am grateful to be cancer-free and healthy, but think about cancer every day.
Your articles and the comments are so alive and vibrant. This is my first time participating in a cancer blog or any blog. That may sound strange, but the experience still seems surreal to me.
