"Angela Armstrong-Coster's book Living and Dying with Cancer is an excellent resource for health care professionals working in clinical areas where patients with cancer are cared for."
-Katherine Michaels, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Pain-Talk
"The voices Armstrong-Coster allows us to hear are so powerful that I found myself wanting to skip directly from one participant to the next...The strength of Armstrong-Corster's work lies in her longitudinal interviewing...The quotations from respondents are generously long and rich in content, and few researchers follow a cohort for 6 years."
-Arthur W. Frank, University of Calgary, Qualitative Sociology
Based on extensive interviews carried out by the author, a series of individual narratives explores the impact of being diagnosed with cancer on those with the disease and the people around them. It will be an invaluable resource not only for social scientists and health professionals but also for those coming to terms with the impact of cancer on their own lives.
