Abstract
"As a young queer woman, Catherine Guthrie worked hard to feel at home in her body. However, after years writing about women's health and breast cancer, Guthrie is thrust into the role of the patient after a devastating diagnosis at age thirty-eight. At least, she thinks, I know what I'm up against. She is wrong ... Filled with candor, vulnerability, and resilience, Guthrie upends the "pink ribbon" narrative and offers a unique perspective on womanhood, what it means to be "whole," and the importance of women advocating for their desires. This book is the story of how she found the strength to forge an unconventional path - one of listening to her body - that she'd been on all along." - Cover
