Description
Whether she's speaking in a whisper about leaving her children motherless, or delivering a manifesto on the downfalls of oncological training, what sets Dr. Yunus apart from other cancer chroniclers is her unsparing point of view and an affecting, crystalline voice. That voice guides the reader through a journey of her experience as a patient, in which she is forced to make a series of decisions that profoundly alter the trajectory of her life. When a biopsy reveals cancer in her liver in February 2016, Dr. Yunus is upgraded to Stage IV--terminal. She then begins a new arc of her narrative, a reckoning with life and death. Yet through it all, she maintains her dignity and strength, her composure and reason, while facing the unimaginable. "Left Boob Gone Rogue" is not just a book for cancer survivors and their families. It is for all of us who take each day for granted, who (waylaid by the hustle of everyday life) forget to reflect on our good fortune. It is a reminder that every moment should be appreciated and celebrated. That is Dr. Uzma Yunus' gift.
