Author: Britt Hockman
The History of a Boob: One Breast Cancer Story is an Autobiography of a right breast that after having served the writer’s body well for many years develops breast cancer at 43 years of age. That breast cancer diagnosis quickly changed that coveted designation. What follows is a comedy and tragedy of medical and personal errors. But it is life and life is a series of trade-offs well-chronicled in the book.
Britt Hockman is from small-town northwestern Pennsylvania. She retired after 30 years in technical publications and information technology for the Shuttle and Station Programs at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. She then moved to Canyon Lake, TX, where she resides with her husband, Klaus. The experience chronicled in The History of a Boob: One Breast Cancer Story is as true and correct and is as clear expository writing as memory and emotion permit.
