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.

Personal Growth Through Crises

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Gene is a five-time cancer survivor, but cancer is not the only life-changing experience that he and his family have faced. Between October, 1998 and November 2002, his home was destroyed in a flood; he battled cancer three times; his only brother died unexpectedly; his mother suffered a stroke and his father committed suicide. Gene has learned many valuable lessons and shares them with you. He believes that a crisis should be confronted with a positive attitude, knowing that you can experience significant personal growth from difficult times. These experiences have helped Gene to become a very empathetic person, one that is able to express his deepest feelings to his children and to close friends. Gene states "Many of us have done our young men a great disservice in teaching them that crying is a weakness. Being able to openly express your emotions is a strength, not a weakness".

Cancer- A Medical And Spiritual Guide

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Cancer - A Medical and Spiritual Guide
William A. Fintel, Gerald McDermott, Dave Dravecky

Modern medicine has made amazing advances in the treatment of cancer, but most people still react with shock and fear when they receive the diagnosis. Cancer doesn't just affect the patient physically; it has emotional and spiritual implications as well.
This comprehensive guide to cancer from a Christian perspective combines the hands-on experience of a medical doctor with the wisdom and compassion of a theologian.

The book surveys a variety of topics including:
- cancer testing, diagnosis, and treatments
- alternative therapies
- the mind-body connection
- faith, fear, healing, and doubts
- life after the diagnosis

Written in accessible language, this complete manual will help cancer patients, as well as their families and friends. It is an essential resource for pastors, counselors, lay ministers, and hospice groups.
