"Hearing the Stream" - by  Diane Chambers
   Recently showcased at the Young Women Affected by Breast Cancer Conference in Atlanta , Georgia
A Survivor's Journey into the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer weaves together the author's own story of her struggle with breast cancer with those of five others also diagnosed. Through each of their eyes Chambers brings to life the complexities of this disease, from its emotional and physical impact to its sometimes hidden historical, economic, political and environmental dimensions.  Chambers shows how bonds of sisterhood develop among the survivors, ironically bringing a great deal that is positive into their lives.
