Hi there, it’s Martina, welcome to my page.
I’m a breast cancer survivor, and author of Smart Decisions about Breast Cancer – choices, risks, living well, preventing recurrence.
I’m not an oncologist, but I sure know how to interpret the medical and scientific literature and make it readable. If you need answers, or you need to know what questions to ask, this is a great resource, addressing the standard, allopathic medical system we are familiar with, as weill as complementary and alternative medicine questions you may have.
My book, Smart Decisions about Breast Cancer, also has lots of great tips on how to live well during treatment and long afterwards, in the numerous survivor years that contemporary breast cancer patients can look forward to.
“There is much to admire in this book.
… I found scientific information that was …very clearly expressed.
This is a book I would want to have if I were ever diagnosed with breast cancer.
I like the flow charts very much …
I was glad for the references…”
– Judge, 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards (2017)
“I loved this book for all its amazing wisdom, complexities, thought-provoking answers and the driven attitude for finding the right choices.
The author’s own insightful lessons learned will have a positive impact on all those struggling to understand their disease.”
– Patricia Hadfield, Retired Oncology Nurse
“Martina has done an exceptional job in compiling the most relevant and up-to-date information regarding breast cancer. I only wish I had this resource available to me at the time of my diagnosis. Being better informed would have eased my anxiety tremendously. However, I’m happy to know that many other women will benefit from this well-researched book, and it will certainly help me to move forward confidently in preventing a recurrence. Knowledge is empowerment, so thank you for that Martina!”
– Nancy Thacker, Survivor
