Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book if you know anyone who is fighting cancer or a family member who is supporting someone fighting cancer. The stories were short but very to the point and insightful. Anyone fighting cancer can identify with this book. I sent the book to someone with breast cancer and she had her family read it and they write messages on the mirror in the morning from the book to help her get thru the day.

Format: Hardcover
Whether you're a caregiver, cancer patient, family member, coworker or friend, this powerful little book is a fear banisher for anyone engaged in the battle to defeat cancer. Hundreds of warriors and survivors display mighty strands of support to construct a web of strength to lend the reader. Good palliative medicine in doses small enough to be well tolerated.

Someone recommended this to me and I thought it would be a good read. I had Hodgkins Lymphoma and wanted to read about other stories, this is nothing but christian rhetoric spewed out about how God saved everyone and gave them a 2nd chance. Do not buy
