Bellaire, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/26/2013 -- It’s the dreaded words no woman wants to hear; “You Have Cancer”. While Catherine L.

As the author explains, her book contains tips and strategies that can be quickly implemented against the ticking clock of breast cancer.
“The first thing many victims realize is that the medical world truly is a confusing maze. The realistic methodology I’ve developed will help any woman navigate the medical landscape with ease, giving rise to quick treatment and decision making, fast implementation and the confidence required to remain happy while getting healthy again,” says Doughty, who created her own character, Cat (the go-to girl of breast cancer) within the book.
She continues, “Readers will be able to secure a world-class medical team by following my step-by-step process. They’ll find out how to review their reports, go over their options again and again with physicians and see the importance of medical consent and that they are the one who will live with the aftermath of every medical decision carried out.”
While written in a straight-forward manner, medical professionals from around the world have flocked to openly endorse Doughty’s methodology and award-winning book.
Emma C. Ferguson, M.D fellowship trained radiologist adds, “This book is invaluable for any patient, family member or friend that has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Cathy has included an easy-to-follow methodology complete with discussion documents, worksheets and criteria solution matrices that will enable patients to make informed decisions about their clinical treatment pathways, gain control of their care, and understand the entire process from start to finish.”
Many physicians state that the book exposes the most overlooked approach for treating breast cancer, Doughty remains hugely proud of the potential impact her work will have on millions living with fear and confusion at their time of great need, when they hear the three dreaded words and must begin to distil uncertainty for the first time.
