Chances are, you or someone very dear to you will be affected by this life-changing disease... if you have not been already.
For women surviving breast cancer and for the families that support them, A Breast Cancer Alphabet is a true must-read. It offers a practical look at the journey from diagnosis to treatment and beyond in a way that's unlike any other book about cancer.
Join author of the book and NPR News Executive Editor, Madhulika Sikka, as she talks about her witty, honest and informative A-to-Z guide to breast cancer.
