Publisher's Summary

A practical yet personal guide to the medical and emotional facets of breast cancer, from a woman who's made her living researching the disease - and lived through it herself

A leading oncologist at the University of California-San Francisco, Dr. Pamela Munster has advised thousands of women on how to deal with the life-altering diagnosis of breast cancer. But when she got a call saying that her own mammogram showed "irregularities", she found herself experiencing a whole new side of the disease she thought she was an expert in.

Weaving together her personal story with her team's groundbreaking research on the BRCA gene - responsible for not only breast cancer but also for many other inherited cancers affecting both women and men - Twisting Fate is an inspiring guide to living with BRCA mutations. With authority, insight, and compassion, Dr. Munster uses her voice to create a safe space for genuine healing and honesty in a world otherwise dominated by fear.

Not a sob story

I needed validation for what I went through with my breast cancer experiences. I also wanted more knowledge about breast cancer. This book was perfect.

Enlightening and inspirational

I loved this book. Although much useful information is provided, the empathy, emotions, and hope shared are even more remarkable. As a physician myself, I only wish more of my colleagues had the compassion and insight of Dr. Munster.
