"The Dogs of Cancer" is a book of hope, humor and holistic healing.

It is a book about all cancers as well as being about a rare and aggressive form of thyroid cancer, Medullary Thyroid Cancer.

The Dogs of Cancer is a courageously open and uplifting personal exploration of cancer and its effects on not only the cancer patient but the lives of those around him. The book explores dealing with cancer, and MTC in particular, and it also delves into the rewards of spiritual growth. This beautifully written memoir assures the reader that although "cancer sucks," it can lead to a better understanding of self and the universe that surrounds us.

Other topics include discussions of:

1. General, holistic approaches to understanding cancer, including the role of nutrition and environment and the recently established causal role that stress plays in developing cancers.

2. Another chapter is on "Tumor Humor", that out-of-the-box brand of humor that only people facing their own mortality can enjoy.

3. A fellow writer contributed an evocative chapter about caregivers that elegantly brings to light the psychological and emotional pressures on a cancer person's primary support.

4. A favorite chapter, and it's more of a rant, is about the things people say (including medical people!), usually with the best of intentions, to someone with cancer.

The Dogs of Cancer is a courageously open and uplifting personal exploration of cancer and its effects on not only the cancer patient but the lives of those around him. The book explores dealing with cancer, and MTC in particular, and it also delves into the rewards of spiritual growth. The reader will discover glimpses of an inner god-consciousness, a spirit that leaps from the part of us that routinely handles the everyday life, and connects with universal energy and understanding. This beautifully written memoir assures the reader that although "cancer sucks," it can lead to a better understanding of self and the universe that surrounds us.

Book Description Outskirts Press, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Coming out of the fog and disorientation of general anesthesia from the operation, three words sliced into my comprehension with absolute clarity: Medullary Thyroid Cancer. These three words changed author William Kenly s life as he began a very intimate journey of personal discovery. Some friends would move closer, some would distance themselves. Some people would open up and share their deepest secrets because he now belonged to their meddie club, and other people would move against him, driven by the bully inside as they saw a vulnerable target. Kenly suffered at the hands of incompetent doctors and had unnecessary procedures and treatment. He was steered away from nutrition and other alternative medical treatments, but he also met doctors whose advice about this rare disease was insightful to the point of ethereal vision. In addition to the knowledge about dealing with cancer in general, and MTC in particular, you will enjoy the captivating, well-written prose of this journey, and you may realize that you are discovering glimpses of an inner god-consciousness that is sometimes the reward of personal exploration. This spirit leaps from inside of the blue part of us that routinely handles the everyday triumphs and tragedies, and this spirit s orange yellow leap connects the blue routine with some universal energy and understanding.
