I was diagnosed with prostate cancer on Dec. 19, 2001. I have written a series of 10 poems on my diagnosis, treatment and ongoing recuperation. It is unusual for a man to write about his emotions and the possible side effects likely to occur with prostate cancer treatment, and I originally wrote the poems only for myself. Then I showed them to some other newly diagnosed men. I also showed them to my surgeon, who is part of a large practice with 10 offices throughout Central Virginia. The practice is making copies of the booklet of poems available to patients. I would like to offer rights at no charge to the American Cancer Society if ACS would like to publish and/or post these poems. To whom should I send the poems for a determination of whether ACS would like to do anything with them? Sincerely, Tom Morris (email is firstname.lastname@example.org).
Book describing all possible side effects of childhood cancer and the different forms of treatment involved.
A guide that instructs caregivers (including professionals)in an effective "bedside manner." The book shows how to use your presence to help someone with cancer feel immediately and dramatically better.
The book describes, with emphasis on using positive thinking, a uterine cancer survivor's experiences with hair loss from chemo.
A great book written by a mother and her son on her battle with Breast Cancer. Highly recommended if you have small children. Great Book!!
As reported in "O" magazine: Here and Now is a feisty, visceral knockout of a collection containing 38 rueful, witty, poignant, and, above all, honest profiles of people ... This is not a book about facing death but about being fully, achingly alive."
