Booklist Review: "England, Spain, Portugal, Russia, Denmark, Sweden--doesn't sound like the itinerary of a cancer victim, does it? But Lorna Goldstein, one of the 10 breast cancer survivors whose stories appear here, has been to all those places recently, traveling with her globe-trotting husband just as she did in years past. And, diagnosed with metastatic, recurring breast cancer, followed by unrelated uterine cancer, she has had bouts with cancer three times, twice within six months. Have cancer, will travel summarizes her upbeat, can-do attitude. Despite the rigors of testing, biopsies, diagnoses, treatments, pain, medication, surgeries, anxieties, hospital stays, nausea, and more, she enjoys health, energy, and a pain-free life that includes painting and piano playing. Neither Goldstein nor any of the other contributors, whose ages span 25 years and whose stages of cancer range from 0 to 4, minimizes the harsh realities, and all bring admirable strength of spirit to bear on their situation, which more than 200,000 additional American women face each year. --Whitney Scott Copyright 2004 Booklist"
