"I didn't know what to do"

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Most people are at a loss to know what to do when someone they care about gets that dreaded diagnosis, "You've got cancer." a diagnosis that 1.2 million people will hear this year in the United States alone. It's difficult to know what to do and, sadly, far too many people respond by quietly withdrawing at the very time their loved-one needs them the most. But that shouldn't and needn't be the case..."I didn't know what to do," already an award-winning book, contains 40 heartwarming stories from survivors about what people did that they found particularly supportive, encouraging and inspirational during their fight against cancer. These practical, idea-packed stories will motive and inspire readers to take an active role in support of the patient and enable them to make a positive difference. This book is the reason people will never have to say "I didn't know what to do."
