Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis isn't another cancer book. It is the triumph of the human experience. It his the story of every woman. It is the incredible insight and brilliance of countless artists who told the story of all those who have suffered from the disease and documented and possibly foretold the development of the therapies that we have today. It tells a story not just in words like other books but uses the images of artists like Michaelangelo, Rubens, Raphael, Eakins and the modern day artist who are also patients and the survivors. In 1997, Susan Love published her book, 'The Susan Love Breast Cancer Book'. It was on the NY Times bestseller list for over seven weeks. It is in its fourth edition and has sold over three quarters of a million copies in several languages. This is not a one hit wonder. There are over a dozen best-selling titles concerning breast cancer. They range from Barbara Delinsky's 'Uplift', Jack Canfield's 'Chicken Soup For The Breast Cancer Survivor', Deborah Cohen's 'Just Get Me Through This', to John List's 'Breast Cancer Survivor', just to name a few.There are over a half dozen magazines targeting the breast cancer survivor and patient with a distribution of over half a million people per month. In addition, Major League Baseball, the NFL, Bank America, Ford Motors Warriors against breast cancer, American Airlines -- just from the top of the list -- have dedicated themselves to spreading the word about breast cancer advocacy, education, support ad research. Our book fits perfectly into this scheme. We bring validity, compassion and something that all other books, journals and magazines haven't touched. We bring the greater artists on the history of the world front and center with the promise of cure while chronicling the struggle that women have had for centuries with this horrid disease.
