Summary: BOOK SUMMARY Metastatic Madness is a collection of poems and the recollections of the author's experience with a first time cancer diagnosis. The book describes the author's five phases of coping with this diagnosis, from initial shock to adjusting to and becoming a strong advocate for yourself and others. Soon after discovering a thickening in her left breast, the author learned she was at Stage 4 breast cancer. Despite previous negative screening and test results, she now has an incurable form
of the disease. Following several months of chemotherapy and surgery, she went into remission of her illness. Since then, she has developed the strength and will to face an illness that has an average life span of three to five years. The author's intent is to share her experience with others who may be struggling with a cancer diagnosis, and hopefully, give them strategies to improve the quality of their lives.
