Once a blonde beauty whose long, shiny locks were her best feature, Laurie Riddell Geary is bold enough to include a photo of her bald head in her book, "Dancing Through Cancer." In other words, she's learned what's important in life, and it certainly isn't hair.

She shares facts, statistics, and resources about cancer and is realistic about what she's up against, but she doesn't complain about the things she can't control. Rather, she focuses on appreciating what she has, being good to herself, and helping others with their own challenges.

Creating a legacy and happy memories for her children and grandchildren are her ultimate goals, and savoring what the present has to offer is her daily objective. She reads, learns, exercises, sails, bikes, hikes, skis, practices yoga, sees family and friends as often as possible, enjoys the view from her small studio on the ocean -- and dances Zydeco -- wherever and whenever she can.

You don't have to have cancer to read this book, but what this five-year survivor has to say is informative, moving, and inspiring. And if her positive attitude is any indication, Geary should have many good years ahead of her.

Laurie Geary's book is an absolute MUST READ!
I got Laurie's book last night and I couldn't put it down. Because I am such a loyal Boston sports fan, my husband was shocked how I ignored the Bruins Stanley Cup finals game last night - I was so enthralled in Laurie's book. Laurie Geary's book, "Dancing through Cancer" is without question the most touching, informative, resourceful and awe-inspiring book I have ever read. (I am still reading it and look forward to jumping back into it tonight).

Laurie Geary is a testament to the immense power of the human spirit. Her beautiful spirit is one million times stronger than cancer.

Laurie, your generosity in sharing your courageous and beautiful story has transformed my spirit. Words cannot express how deeply you touched me forever.

Laurie's story will have a profound and everlasting impact on everyone who reads it. My life will have even deeper meaning because of you.
Laurie, thank you for sharing your divinity.
With love, gratitude and awe,
Chrissy Carew

Dancing Through Cancer is a story about total courage and the joyous steps Laurie Geary has taken to embrace life! Not surprisingly Laurie has defied the statistics having lived with stage four-lung cancer for five years. Laurie's energy, courage and life-affirming attitude powerfully sway like her love for dancing throughout the book. She provides important information on cancer not only for people living with cancer, but also for all people, since all of us know someone who has had or is living with cancer. Laurie honestly shares her profoundly moving experiences of loss that cancer has brought into her life. She also energizes us with knowledge of how to live with, manage, and perhaps prevent this life-altering disease. Please do yourself a supreme service and read Dancing Through Cancer and you might well find yourself taking some unexpected steps to enjoying life more.

This is a very personal story of one person's response to the unexpected diagnosis of lung cancer (in a non-smoker) Ms Geary is very candid in telling us her reactions and how if affected her life, but she also includes valuable information about lung cancer in women and non-smokers, and stigma undeservedly attributed to its victims.

She also provides very valuable information on treatment of lung cancer, particularly involving new and targeted treatments based on genetics in immunology.

The book is a series of blogs, some repetitive, but well organized. It would be helpful for individuals with cancer, as well as for their family and friends.
