Publisher's Summary

An inauspicious encounter in a doctor's surgery during a routine follow-up for IVF initiated a descent into a labyrinth of questioning and uncertainty. Those first words ushered out of the doctor's mouth started a year where the author's mind was consumed by medical research, medical terms, hospital visits, medication and explanations. The diagnosis was breast cancer.

Filled with reflections on life, motherhood, friendship and the future, A Year of Medical Thinking chronicles one woman's ordinary life as it is catapulted into a quest for meaning and restored health. S. K. Reid has shared her personal experiences in this book in a way that speaks to all. The book focuses on the shift that occurs in the mind after a potentially life threatening diagnosis; the loss of control, security and hope prompts philosophical and spiritual reflections on life.

Guaranteed to strike a chord with anyone who has received a diagnosis of a life-threatening disease, listeners are reminded about the importance of sharing stories, talking about grief and never giving up in the face of adversity.
