Life in the Balance is a book I couldn’t put down and that surprised me. I didn’t expect an eloquent, almost light-hearted account of life with breast cancer. Marla is to be applauded for her poignant and straightforward account of her battle. It brought out every possible human emotion. Marla shows us that there is life during and after breast cancer. This is a book that should be read by every woman whether they’re going through this disease or not.”
