Why I'm Glad I Had Breast Cancer is the autobiography of Leonore H. Dvorkin, a breast cancer survivor who had a left-side mastectomy at age 52. After her operation, Leonore came to realize the benefits of her struggle against the disease; she had learned how to be happier, calmer, more focused, and more appreciative. Chapters tell of her meditations upon such things as self-pity vs. the need to put one's life experience in perspective; breasts, beauty, sex, and femininity; the challenges of going forward into the future; learning to accept and appreciate the advance of age; and much more. A reflective and ultimately optimistic memoir.
