Imagine being diagnosed with a disease as seemingly minor as melanoma that quickly progresses to stage four cancer, where the chances of survival drop to less than 10% in five years. And, the options are only surgery, a handful of tough FDA-approved treatments, and a risky experimental therapy hundreds of miles from home. Usually we think of cancer as an ugly, terrifying disease. But Bob Heffernan's amazing journey against all odds tells an uplifting story of perseverance, hope, and positivity that will inspire all cancer patients. He found that alongside fear and suffering, cancer provides numerous gifts that nourish the human soul. It’s a story about how we can find goodness and beauty in even the most terrible challenge life throws at us: cancer.

The real facts about your “girls” and how to take care of them “Well, all my friends think they will never have breasts—and it’s not funny—because a lot of girls feel this way.” —Elena, 13 “I went up two sizes over summer break! I started seventh grade with a ‘C’ cup. Then my breasts got weird pink stripes on the side. What happened?” —Veronica, 12 Girls are as anxious and confused about their breasts as ever. That’s why Marisa Weiss, M.D., an oncologist and breast health specialist, and her teenage daughter, Isabel, decided to create Taking Care of Your “Girls.” Together, they polled more than three thousand girls and their moms and came up with a surprisingly huge list of worries and misconceptions. Based on their research, you’ll get answers to questions like: • How do I know when I need to get my first bra—and what kind should I get? • Do big breasts have a higher risk of breast cancer than small ones? • How do I get rid of stretch marks? • When will my breasts stop growing? • How do I examine my own breasts? • Will the size of my breasts even out? • Do tanning, antiperspirants, wearing a bra at night, and talking on a cell phone cause breast cancer? A groundbreaking book for both mothers and daughters, Taking Care of Your “Girls” is a practical guide to breast care and a girl-to-girl conversation about the feelings and emotions that come with the territory. “This all-in-one, indispensable breast health guide captures exactly what teen girls and their moms really need: practical, easy-to-read, great advice. It’s one of the best gifts you can give to your girl.” —Harvey Karp, M.D., F.A.A.P., author of The Happiest Toddler on the Block, board member of Healthy Child, Healthy World

This is Bridget Jones Dries Out. Clare Pooley is a Cambridge graduate and was a Managing Partner at one of the world's biggest advertising agencies, and yet by eighteen months ago she'd become an overweight, depressed, middle-aged mother of three who was drinking more than a bottle of wine a day, and spending her evenings Googling 'Am I an alcoholic?'

A year that started with her quitting booze having been drinking more than a bottle of wine every day. It sees her starting a hugely successful blog, then getting and beating breast cancer. By the end of the year she is booze free and cancer free, two stone lighter and with a life that is so much richer, healthier and more rewarding than ever before.

Interwoven within Clare's own very personal and frank story is research and advice, and answers to questions like: How do I know if I'm drinking too much? How will I cope at parties? What do I say to friends and family? How do I cope with cravings? Will I lose weight? What if my partner still drinks? And many more.
