But these same frolicking, out-of-control cancer cells are trying to kill us.

Death by cancer and a friend's dinner conversation seem to carry the same weight for Wisenberg which is confusing if you prefer your information prioritized, or at least inflected. The memoir doesn't really wrap up so much as trail off. To be fair, it's a collected version of her blog postings, so its informal, sometimes spacey tone is appropriate to some extent.
But you finish the book a little at odds — does she ever get reconstructive surgery?
What happens to the hair she's talked so much about? Does her cancer go into fairly stable remission? A table of writers asked to workshop Cancer Bitch might raise that other favorite chestnut: "So what? Sometimes they don't. Things continue to be painfully wry the whole way through. But this book seems to remain more a record of a life saddled for a while with cancer exorcised by the removal of a breast than a deep probing of what it is to be human, with one's cells in absolute revolt, and one's relationships in doubt, and the mundanities of life turned somehow awful and somehow precious all at once.
This book loves its own tone. It's a good tone. It's a brave, questioning tone you'd appreciate in a good friend. No Kidding.
