You are not alone

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women. In the so-called developed world, every 8th to 10th woman encounters such a problem. A woman confronted with such a diagnosis is scared, desperate and seeking proper information. When she enters “breast cancer” into a search engine (web) she receives more than 200 million hits. She finds herself at the information garbage dump and is even more frightened.

Therefore, I decided to write a book together with my colleagues. Today, people aspire to perfection, wholeness of body, freedom and the pleasures of life. Everyone is the same. Everyone is important. A world without women is empty, and a world without happy and content women is a sad world. The book is intended for patients and both the professional and non-professional public and for a better world. Lastly, it is for everyone who hasn't yet been absorbed by the virtual world and wishes to know more about the challenges and the solutions faced by modern society.


Restore your body and life: choose a state-of-the-art approach for modern women.

Drawing personal accounts from women who have faced the issues for real, it aims to help you to better understand breast reconstruction, the surgical process involved and the possible benefits and problems you might expect from this type of surgery. The Book features full colour illustrations to help show exactly what is involved, explores psychological aspects of breast reconstruction, addresses the options for those who decide not to undergo reconstructive surgery and explains how other treatments may affect or be affected by reconstruction.

Philosophy & Author

Life needs balance; the balance between laughter and grief, joy and worry, play and work, success and failure. This is the only way we can grow. And when we are old enough, and, hopefully, wise enough, we realize that we are not alone in this world, as the successes we achieve are because of the people around us with whom we have shared the adventure of time and place, where our mutual interactions have molded us into who we are, and whose influence has guided our achievements. These experiences are our most valuable possessions and they come with no price tag.
