A Profound New Book on Surviving Breast Cancer.
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Susan Armenti listened to an inner voice saying she was not well even though medical experts were telling her everything was fine. They were wrong. Misdiagnosed more than once she knows how important it is to be your own best advocate and listen to what your body is telling you.
In her new breast cancer book, Sensation In The Night: Waking Up To Breast Cancer, What You Still Don’t Know, Armenti deftly combines basic medical information, practical tips and raw journal entries into a book that is a dramatic memoir and tells you a survivor’s amazing story of a woman’s intuition, but for the newly diagnosed will actually help you prepare yourself for the battle of your life. She even includes an important list of 65 questions that you can take with you to your doctor’s office.
As Dr. Heidi Kummer, M.D., M.P.H., says, “Susan chronicles her incredible 16 year journey with honesty. Within is crucial information on how to navigate an often impersonal medical maze and daunting insurance landscape. This book offers humor, help and hope to all those touched by this terrible disease, cancer.”
In Sensation In The Night: Waking Up To Breast Cancer, What You Still Don’t Know, Armenti offers sage advice for all women about this disease. For the newly diagnosed she provides vital information so women can ask the not-so-obvious questions that need to be asked of doctors, nurses, hospitals and insurance companies. Included is specific information about what to be aware of as you interview a doctor for reconstruction, the signs of post-op complications like infection and allergic reactions, the importance of reading your own reports and how to cope with some of the emotional burdens and life-after treatment issues around men, sex and dating that breast cancer brings.
Sensation In The Night: Waking Up To Breast Cancer, What You Still Don’t Know, is Armenti’s first non-fiction book. She has worked for Condè Nast’s Vogue magazine, Warner Bros., and the William Morris Agency. She now owns a California real estate company.
