This book is very upbeat and aimed at young survivors - it's pink
and white color scheme and charming illustrations keep your spirits up. A
consistently positive book, Hazen does not dwell on the down side of treatment -
but keeps her eye on the goals of breast cancer treatment and the coming
celebration. Women who already have a wide circle of friends and family will
find this book extremely useful - it is packed with supportive tasks and tips.
But this book may be overwhelming to women without such a support
network. In case you're not supplied with a large extended family within close
reach, a gaggle of girlfriends, or any other ready-made support system, just
pick and choose from the advice in Treat Her Like a Princess. I would
recommend this book for any patient or supporter who likes to be organized and
helpful, because the advice is so practical.

I really enjoyed speaking with you, Denise, yesterday over the phone; your story is heart-warming and one that will help many women in their plight against breast cancer. I am attaching a link to my blog; I posted my piece on your book just this morning.

Read the book, then gather your friend's friends together and plan what you can do to be supportive as she journeys through her breast cancer treatments. The book covers accompanying her to appointments, helping her keep up with meal preparation and home care, supporting her family, and gently celebrating treatment milestones. MORE

Finally, a book that provides me with all the information I need to help my friends in need. Who else to provide the information but someone who has gone through it. Thanks you, Denise, for helping women help each other!

As the caregiver to my sister, I loved the suggestions in Treat her like a Princess. The book has helped me to under stand the process and has given me insight into what my sister will really need. Here's to Princess Power!

Denise Hazen has given us a gift in the form of Treat her Like a Princess. She reminds us that life is too short and precious. We all need to slow down and treat each other like royalty.

Being told you have breast cancer is devastating, battling it alone is nearly impossible. As a two-time survivor, my family and I have hit some extremely tough times. If it had not been for the help of an army of friends and family we would have fallen apart. We had a team that was there to meet our daily needs – food, play dates and babysitting, hand holding, shoulders to cry on, shuttle service to treatments, medical research – they were an unbelievable force to help us through and be with us during the journey. Treat her Like a Princess, girlfriends' guide to breast cancer is such a treasure to the community. With this guide in hand, there is no need to give that rhetorical response – ‘Call me if you need anything!' The answers are right at your fingertips! Thanks Denise for such a great tool!
Thank you for the lovely presentation last night at the Women in Medicine Dinner here in San Antonio. I appreciated your sharing valuable life lessons with us. It is obviously one thing to talk about these life challenges, and another thing to not only live them, but also turn it into a positive experience. I personally wish you continued joy in your life's work.

This book was so helpful in showing me what I needed to do for my sister who has breast cancer. The chemo and scheduled surgeries are overwhelming for everyone - but this book puts everything in perspective and allows loved ones to treat cancer patients like princesses. The illustrations are beautiful. Buy the book now :-) We simply LOVE it!
