Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

NBC News correspondent Betty Rollin, glamorous,  successful, and happily married, had it all — and then she learned that she had a malignant tumor in her breast.  Written with wit, warmth, and soul searching honesty, First, You Cry is the inspiring, true story about how one woman transformed the most terrifying ordeal of her life into a new beginning.  Now with a new introduction and epilogue, this unique memoir serves as a fascinating retrospective of the twenty-five years since Rollin's first mastectomy and, given the continuing threat of breast cancer, tells a story that will inform all women as it touches them with its honesty and even, humor.

Synopsis:

This 25th anniversary edition of the classic memoir of Rollin's struggle withbreast cancer features a new Introduction and Epilogue.
