9781418476489: I Don't Have Time for This: My Battle with Cancer

For millions of people who are diagnosed with cancer, their first reaction is that they just received their death sentence. That reaction leads to a life of isolation, dependence and, often, misery for the cancer patient. One man refused to let that happen. He had a job he loved as a newspaper editor, a house to take care of, and, at 41 years old, a lot more years of life to live. So on the same night he was diagnosed with what would become a constant battle with cancer, he resolved to maintain a positive attitude. He would use that attitude to guide him through thirteen months of surgeries, as well as the physical torture of chemotherapy and radiation, and the emotional torture of MRIs and body scans. This editor was a busy guy in April 2002 when he was diagnosed with lung cancer and, quite frankly, he didn't have time for the disease. In one of the most inspiring books about living with cancer, author Tom Canavan opens the doors to his life and takes readers on the journey through his darkest period. "I Don't Have Time for This: My Battle with Cancer" is the story of a man who refused to surrender any part of his life while waging war against his illness. It is the story of a man who turns to his younger brother, an oncologist, who guides him along the road to remission. "I Don't Have Time for This" is a book every cancer patient should want to read to assure themselves that life can be just as happy and fulfilling even after the diagnosis. The book also is recommended reading for families of cancer patients who can find understanding in what their loved ones are enduring following surgery and during radiation and chemotherapy treatments. Finally, it is the story of one man's strength, courage and heroism in the face of so many obstacles that the readers of his newspapers have labeled him an inspiration to so many people.
