9781888387728: Stronger Than Cancer: Treasured Insights from the Hearts and Homes of Families Fighting Cancer (Lessons Learned)

A remarkable and inspiring book of hope, help, encouragement, and advice for cancer patients and their friends and families. It is not written by Doctors, it comes straight from the hearts and homes of real families that have reached down and found new will and new ways to effectively fight this battle together.

Each year cancer’s shadow touches a million new families, but those are just the statistics. There is a compelling story behind every statistic, and in those stories are priceless insights and powerful lessons for every family battling this disease. Some of the most inspiring and practical are featured in the pages of this book.

Each vignette (there are approximately 200 in all) averages less than 200 words, but each provides an immediately useful insight, suggestion or lesson drawn from the personal experiences of a family that has already met and dealt with cancer. These vignettes are different from each other in many ways but the overall message of the book is consistent, powerful and hopeful: "If you have recently been diagnosed with cancer, be assured that you are never fighting alone. Cancer is strong, but when all of us combine our love, support, energy, faith and experience, we are always stronger."

From the Publisher:

Here is proof that friends and family really can make a difference in every cancer patient's battle, and this book shows how on every page.

From the Author:

We are winning the war on cancer, that's for certain. One of the biggest reasons we are winning is that we have learned that we can't just fight cancer on a single front---we must attack and win on all three: Mind, Body and Spirit.

One of the most important fronts, of course, is the home front. "Stronger Than Cancer" shows the astonishing power of friends and family in the fight against cancer. If you are a friend or family member of a cancer patient, here's what you need to know from people who have travelled this road before you and are here to share their priceless insights and advice.
