There is so much out there to read that I feel overwhelmed by all the information. However, very few books make you feel BETTER about this very "sucky" situation. Thank you to someone who really needed it, and appreciates it.
In fact, I'd recommend this book even if you don't have cancer. At least keep a copy on hand to read or to give to someone immediately upon diagnosis. It can be an anchor in the storm of cancer, an understanding and helpful hand to hold, as emotions swirl within and all kinds of important and immediate decisions need to be made.
Dr. Givler's book, along with "A Guide to Medical Resources" outlined within the book, would have been very helpful, not only for me, but my mother and her siblings, since my grandmother died of cervical cancer is 1984. (I have since passed my copy of this wonderful book on to one of my mother's sisters, and I have already asked a dear friend of mine if she would like a copy - her brother-in-law has cancer.)
By the time you get to the last chapter of Amy Givler's book, "Searching for Meaning," you're familiar enough with her rhythmic style of writing that you expect, and need the profound insights and quotes. Dr. Givler's book gives perspective on a life changing, life threatening situation in the context of faith, something many unknowingly search for and few ever find.
