My experience surviving and living with head and neck cancer
The memoir of a retired nursing professor's journey through lung cancer. It vividly and honestly portrays her feelings and pain as she goes through diagnosis, chemotherapy, hair loss, surgery and recuperation. There are "Waysides" along the way to reflect on what was learned and how it can help others who are traveling with cancer. Finally, it deals with how her experience with cancer has turned into one of personal growth and renewal. This book is written by a health care professional, but there is no intent to provide medical information. It is, instead, a sharing of memories of personal experiences with the intent of helping others on their journey with cancer. It offers inspiration and hope to all facing cancer.
