From the sterile walls of an operating room to the lingerie department at Nordstrom, It's Not About the Hair is one woman's look at life, death, and all the places in between. Upon being diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer-an ironic twist of fate after years of working as an oncology chaplain-Debra Jarvis begins a recovery that is unlike any other. Summoning "Mr. Martha Miyagi" (the voice guiding her that combines Mr. Miyagi from The Karate Kid and Martha Stewart) along with the wisdom of her patients, the author endures surgery, chemotherapy, and the hunt for mastectomy camisoles. With self-deprecating humor and spiritual insight, Jarvis proves that when it comes to cancer... it's not about the hair. Book jacket.
