Down To The Marrow

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Catherine Stone had always been fearless until she was diagnosed with a truly wicked disease, non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.
Suddenly, she was wandering through a high tech world of PET Scans, spleen biopsies, and stem cell transplants, refusing to show anyone how terrified she was. The strength to overcome fear and fight her illness came from writing. Healthcare system adventures co-mingle with memories from the past that she believed might contain roadmaps to victory. Through this process of remembering and recording, Catherine completely forgot she was supposed to be conquering fear. Instead, through the typing of thousands of words she and fear made a wary peace. Down to the Marrow is a celebration of the richness that life offers. For better or worse, with strength, humor, and remembrance, the author reminds us all how the many minutes of our lives are connected and, if we trust this connection, it will hold us together through the most horrendous of times.

I Am Not My Breast Cancer

Type:

This is a new book taken from an online Breast Cancer Support Group called First Person Plural. 800 women from 49 states and several other countries participated. The discussions were compiled into a book. The book is described on the cover with the following words: "Women talk openly about love and sex, hair loss and weight gan, Mothers and Daughters, and being a woman with Breast Cancer." I was one of the women who contributed and after reading the book, I have to say I am proud to be a part of this project.

Fighting Cancer with the Help of Your Catholic Faith

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Very helpful book for me. I wish I had this book right after I found out about my cancer, but found it even more helpful after I found it. It does help me as I talk to others about what I am going through. The book is true by it saying that Cancer is a lonely disease. It is but with the help of this book. I learned to find peace with my illness and accepting cancer is a little easier even though I have still have fears of it coming back. I feel I can accept it if it chooses to come back.

Poem, Slow Dance

Type: 
Book
Description: 

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids

On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain

Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

Do you run through each day

On the fly?

When you ask How are you?

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done
!

Do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores

Running through your head?

You'd better slow down

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

Ever told your child,

We'll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,

Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time

To call and say,"Hi"

You'd better slow down.

Don't dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won't last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere

You miss half the fun of getting there

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift....

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.
