Publisher's Summary

With 30 years of experience as a nursing home administrator, Natalie Zeleznikar was no stranger to the strengths and limitations of health care. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, the plan was a double mastectomy and a couple months to recovery. 

Her reality was eight total hospitalizations in five years after nearly dying - not of cancer, but of sepsis.

With a unique perspective blending the experiences of a patient and a health care worker, The Scars You Can’t See follows Natalie’s journey of struggle and survival. 

This breast cancer memoir offers empathy, healing information, and advocacy to support those on a path to recovery. The Scars You Can’t See is also a valuable resource for loved ones wondering how to support someone with cancer, offering an essential window into the roller coaster of emotions a patient faces.

Bridge emotions and healing beyond the physical scars of surgery. Once we rip the bandages off, the real healing begins.

“Natalie’s valuable perception as a health care professional and as a breast cancer survivor is sure to help others who have been through a similar experience know they are not alone.” (Laura Lummer, breast cancer recovery coach)
