Readers will delve into a breast cancer journey and beyond in Losing the Girls, a unique memoir differentiated by cutting-edge nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM)—a little-known breast cancer surgery technique that leaves the breast completely whole., 9/22/2013 - Losing the Girls Author Promotes Awareness of Nipple Sparing Mastectomy

Outskirts Press announces the latest highly anticipated autobiography and personal memoir from Riverview, FL, author Shirley Alarie.

Denver, CO, and Riverview, FL - Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Losing the Girls: My Journey Through Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy And Beyond by Shirley Alarie. The author's most recent book to date is a 5.5 x 8.5 paperback in the autobiography and personal memoirs category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Shirley Alarie shares her story to boost awareness of this specialized procedure, which is only offered at select hospitals. She believes that women facing mastectomies deserve to know all of their options.

Shirley found that the biggest challenge of her life began with a convoluted breast cancer diagnosis; and then there was the overwhelming array of surgery options. Mastectomy or lumpectomy? Single mastectomy or double? Reconstruction or no reconstruction? She worried about making the right choice and how her decision would affect her both in the short and long term. How would it affect her marriage? Was it crazy to choose a hospital three hours from home?

After the surgery, Shirley’s determination to beat the cancer triggered a lifestyle transformation that resulted in a stronger, more empowered woman. Her deep faith in God and her peace with the afterlife helped shape her response to this life-changing ordeal with cancer—and the love and support of an amazing posse of family and friends, along with a liberal dose of humor and hope, pulled her through the darkness and back into the warm, sunny light.

Losing the Girls is a powerful and uplifting book for every woman—and the people who love them—to read.
