Great group of people going through the same things.
New Zealand author Phil Kerslake relates his experiences and insights with warmth, humour and pragmatism. Enlisting the contributions of some of the world’s leading cancer researchers and practitioners, this world-recognised six-time cancer survivor shows how to use action and attitude to support cancer recovery.
This book shows how:
• To cope with a cancer battle as you never thought you could
• What being a fighter really means
• What being an "active patient" involves in practice
• To turn faith and hope into verbs and wishes into actions
• To convene a life path audit that will feed your will to live
• To create a life with more balance, meaning and fulfilment

It is inspiring, informative, courageous, and life-affirming. It is a recipe for a beautiful life and it moved me deeply … as it will you.”

It's not about the bike, or about the sport. It's about the soul." - Cincinnati Enquirer
My personal experience/journal with malignant Paraganglioma
I found these "The Nanny" dvds to be very funny. Laughter is very important for cancer survivors during and after the treatments. I have rented two of "The Nanny" dvd series. And I just laugh and laugh and laugh. She reminds me of "I Love Lucy".
