Synopsis

A shock diagnosis. Breast surgery ahead. What would you say to your boobs?

It all began with one woman and the letter she wrote to her wobbly, womanly parts during treatment for breast cancer. Ninety-nine other women have since added their innermost thoughts to form this intimate collection of revealing letters.

The 'Dear Boobs Project' was the mission of Emily Searle. Emily compiled 100 letters to boobs, written by women of all ages and stages, each personally affected by breast cancer. It was book Emily found to be missing during her own healing journey - a sisterhood she wanted to share.

The hardback edition has been lovingly delivered to waiting rooms far and wide, where it is hoped these letters shall be read, and provide comfort and insight for years to come.

The nature of Dear Boobs lends itself beautifully to being read aloud, adding another level of accessibility to these tales of courage, survival and, ultimately, love.

This audiobook could not have been possible without the generosity of Lee Smith-Gibbons (narrator), Audiobooks New Zealand (production and distribution) and our wonderful sponsor Brilliantly.co.
