In Hitting the Wall: Memoir of a Cancer Journey, these women will find a wise and comforting companion to guide them during this difficult time. Author and breast cancer survivor Barbara Glacel uses her own well-documented experiences to encourage and empower others to take control of many aspects of their treatment. The resources she gives and insights she reveals are invaluable to those determined to fight this disease.

Written not just for the cancer patient, but also for her loved ones and caregivers, Hitting the Wall shows readers how they, too, can refuse to give up or give in when threatened by this intimidating disease – and reassures them that they are not alone.
