About the Book

Do you have breast cancer or know someone who does? Do you think the situation is hopeless? When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, it was one of the most frightening experiences in my life. Through my firsthand experience, I found a lot of great information and answers to questions that others may also have. My story contains a wealth of information and insight that I hope may help others in a similar situation. I called it Sur5or because when you reach the five-year mark from your diagnosis, you are considered a survivor.

About the Author

Joanne Lonegro-Babbino is a breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed in 2004 with infiltrating ductal carcinoma. She attacked this challenge head-on without missing a step. She experienced the ups and downs of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, all while working full-time and raising two very young children. Joanne wanted to take the time to share her experiences and let other people know that they too can survive. She also got treatment from a holistic provider (alternative medicine), and she wants everyone who is experiencing breast cancer or knows someone who is to know that they have options. Although her situation may not be exactly like someone else’s, she felt that it was important to document her experiences. Joanne’s goal is to provide some answers to questions that someone who might be fighting the battle with breast cancer or any other challenge in their lives that they feel might be too much to handle. Joanne Lonegro-Babbino grew up and currently lives in Hauppauge, New York, with her husband, John, and two beautiful daughters, Megan and Emma.
