I have a close pal going through cancer at the moment and she was really struggling to find stories about people who had survived her cancer. I found this new book on amazon the other day and ordered it for her. She asked me to post up here about it as she said it is really interesting and has stories from lots of different inspirational survivors. Anyway it’s called The Cancer Survivors Guide and is by a guy called Chris Geiger. Maybe as she liked this book it can also help others too. Hope this is helpful.

He, Sophie.  My best friend is going through chemo at the moment, and I have been inspired and uplifted by his positive attitude through every stage so far.  I would love to share his blog with you and your friend, in the hopes that his words might help you cope as they are helping me.  You can find his blog at http://perspectiveodysseum.blogspot.com/2013/05/01-pushing-off-from-shores.html (that is specifically the link to the first post) and he also links to my blog, where I have been writing about my own process of coping.  I have also created an ****ur post to introduce others to his story, at http://****ur.com/gallery/KgHJp.

 

If you find any of this helpful, I'd love to hear why/how.  If there's anything else I can do or say to help you through this, let me know.  I have found reaching out to various communities to be very helpful for me, and I love connecting with others and sharing when I can.

 

Best of luck to you both, and thank you for sharing.
