Review of "Am I Next In Line" by Monique Achtman

Once I started Monique's book, I couldn't put it down. This is a definite must read for anyone facing the BRCA cancer gene, or for those with family or friends facing the BRCA cancer risk.

I felt a flood of emotions as I read this; happy because I didn’t feel so alone in my fears; sad because it brought back the all-too-raw memories of losing my mom to ovarian cancer; worried that I might be next; relieved that my sister and my niece won't need to feel the stress and emotional turmoil I'm going through; and a strong feeling of déjà vu with many of her experiences paralleling my own.

I hope that this book will help other women who are as frightened as little girls when they ask, Am I next…?, it certainly gave me tremendous hope.

Am I Next In Line can be ordered here.
