Climb Back from Cancer - Introducing The 10 Tools of Triumph for Survivors and Caregivers

Type: 
Book
Description: 

The first book in the proposed "Climb Back from Cancer Collection", this is both a gripping true adventure story and a powerful tool kit for triumph. At the age of 42, international bestselling author and Mt. Everest climber and summiteer, Alan Hobson, beleived scaling the world's tallest peak would be the biggest challenge he would face in his life. Over a decade, he had endured three gruelling expeditions to Everest before finally standing on top of his third attempt. Then he had turned his ambition to becoming the best adventure speaker in the world. But three years after Everest, he came face to face with an even bigger mountain: he was diagnosed with acute leukemia, a cancer of the blood, and given less than a year to live. With the help of his fiancee, Cecilia, he not only survived, but thrived, and the couple emerged all the stronger from their shared trial. Climb Back from Cancer is their inspiring account of commitment, teamwork and triumph. The story offers not only a living example of how to climb back from cancer, but demonstrates how to transform adversity into opportunity. It includes The 10 Tools of Triumph for Survivors and Caregivers - what the couple considers to be the key psychological skills required to survive life-threatening illness and thive beyond it.

I'd Rather Laugh- How to Be Happy Even When Life Has Other Plans for You

Type: 
Book
Description: 

I started reading this book when I began aggressive chemotherapy. It is not cancer specific, but holds a message that can translate to any trying time in life. It showed me that it's still possible to maintain a sense of humor during hard times; it's not only ok, but also healing to laugh.

If that isn't enough of a draw for you the author, Linda Richman, is the mother-in-law of comedian Mike Myers as well as the inspiration for his SNL character the Coffee Talk Lady.
