Read a few reviews of the book! Then see some of our interviews and stories...

The professional and gorgeous photos of women are full of joy, and the attitude is that they may have lost a body part, but they didn't lose what is most important. This book should be in every single breast surgeon's office.     -But doctor...I hate pink

[This] book is changing women's lives, encouraging each survivor to love themselves, their scars and their journey. -Breast Cancer Answers

The book does not push a particular agenda, [and is easily] absorbed at whatever pace feels kind of functions as a private support group- one you can dip into whenever you need it.     -Amy, Breast Friends award nomination

Beauty After Breast Cancer excels in presenting the emotional journey that can accompany breast cancer [and simultaneously] conveys a message of hope. Hope that after the ordeal of breast cancer treatment and diagnosis, there is the possibility of a life not only filled with beauty, but in which it is possible to feel beautiful.    -The Lancet Oncology

When it comes to a heart-wrenching diagnosis, there must be more than numbers shown in order to make a patient, rather, a human being, comfortable and prepared to take on medical options and keep themselves optimistic. There is a severe lack of compassion when it's needed most. Beauty after Breast Cancer is the solution to this crucial issue.    -Nikki Erlick, Redbook Magazine

With one foot in the medical world and one foot in the patient world, Katelyn Carey had the experience and knowledge it takes to create a life-changing book aimed at individuals diagnosed with breast cancer. This book is not an insipid pamphlet or images lined with statistics. It is a work of art that is accomplishing exactly what modern medicine would not.   -Samantha Matcovsky, Huffington Post

Holy crap this book is phenomenal!    -Xeni, Editor of

This is not just a book for breast cancer patients, this is a book for everyone. The inspirational stories, that adjustment of learning to love our bodies as they are, the celebration of life and beauty- everyone needs to read this.   -Lori, Ashland Community Hospital Volunteer
