Help Me Live: 20 Things People with Cancer Want You to Know

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Written by cancer survivor and journalist Lori Hope, Help Me Live has been described as an "everything you always wanted to know about how to help someone with cancer but were afraid to ask" storybook. Based on interviews and surveys with more than 100 cancer patients, survivors, and care providers, Help Me Live details words and actions that can help or hurt someone who's received a cancer diagnosis. It not only tells tales (many of which are humorous), but provides many lists of things to say and not say, plus examples of sensitive and compassionate ways to show your love.
This resource is more for caregivers than patients, but it's a good book for patients to have laying around for their friends, co-workers, and loved ones.

Nordie's at Noon - The Personal Stories of Four Women "Too Young" for Breast Cancer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Nordie's at Noon shares the personal stories of four young professional women diagnosed with breast cancer at age 30 or younger. Once a month, they met at Nordstrom's Cafe for lunch. It was their special place to laugh, cry, support and educate each other - and celebrate the journey of life after a cancer diagnosis.

Their diagnoses came at very different phases of their young lives. Patti was 24, single, and forging her way in the corporate world. Jana was planning her wedding at age 27, and courageously walked down the aisle wearing a wig and breast prothesis. Jennifer, also 27, was five months pregnant when she was diagnosed, and endured surgery and chemotherapy during the pregnancy. Kim found her lump at age 30 while planning her son's second birthday party, and faced the issues of raising a toddler while she underwent treatment.

Nordie's at Noon will serve as a source of humor, strength, inspiration and education. It is the author's hope that this book will encourage women to be proactive with their health - and realize that no one is "too young" for breast cancer.
