The Cancer Effect is a compelling book that takes the reader through the journey of breast cancer. Claudia’s honesty, raw emotion, courage, and humor are inspiring. A must read for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis as well as for those who love them.”  ~ Lauri Benson, M.Ed.

The Cancer Effect is an extraordinary read that I could not put down!   As a survivor, I felt like I was reading my own story.   Claudia’s emotional and physical journey resonated with me as I connected heart to heart with her struggle to rise above the ‘rubble’ and ‘muck’ that comes with a cancer diagnosis.”   ~  Shawna Banovich, Breast Cancer Survivor

“This book is a must read for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer.  Patients, Healthcare providers, family, friends, and loved ones can share the journey of this brave woman as she shares her personal thoughts and emotions in The Cancer Effect.  The real, honest writing style is simultaneously heartbreaking and triumphantly optimistic.  Bretzing has provided an invaluable resource for anyone who finds themselves traveling down this road.”
