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.

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.

Anticancer: A New Way of Life

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Dr. Servan-Schreiber shares his personal journey through diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer. Proposing that all people have dormant cancer cells, Dr. Schreiber identifies and describes changes that can make a difference in caring for our "terrain:"

* Protecting Oneself (avoidance of chemicals, environmental and others)
* Diet (Mediterranean diet)
* Activity
* Meditation
* Freeing Oneself From Feelings of Powerlessness and Helplessness

I read this book in one sitting. Some of the science was hard to comprehend initially, but with careful reading (and maybe some re-reading!), it is understandable to laypeople. While it would be easy to take a shortcut and read/utilize only the glossy pages in the center of the book, I recommend reading all of it. There are some lovely and transcendant moments describing acts of great courage and strength. Plus, you'd never get to read about Mighty Mouse #6! :)
