cancer face," says
actress Kris Carr,
who in 2003 was
diagnosed with
malignancies
throughout her

Breast Cancer The Notebook


by Julia Chiappetta

discovered that she
had breast cancer,
she did what anyone
would do: She
began researching
her condition. "But
I couldn't understand

medical terminology."
So she
gathered simple
explanations of
many important
words (e.g., ultrasound)
and
compiled them in
this notebook.
