A while back I was reading a post about a book, a very positive book that people said was great for people diagnosed with a life threatening illness such aa cancer. I wrote it down, but can't find it.. does anyone know the name/author of this book?? Thanks..
My husband was diagnosed 2 years ago with stage 4 colon cancer, at the age of 44. He will be 46 in 2 weeks and just found out the cancer has now spread into both lungs. He's had his rectum removed with a permanent colostomy, a liver resection and many other things such as radiation, chemo (folfox with avastin), theraspheres). A second liver resection was to be done early september, but cannot be done now because of further spreading. I just think he needs a positive book right now... thanks

Hi Judy.. sorry to hear you r news. I do not know of the book you mention but I can tell you this. Stick around here. you both could use some positive support. I also am stage IV and 46. It is tough but I can not tell you how many times this board of caring people have picked my bum up off the ground ad put me back on my feet. keep us posted, let me know if I can help in any way.

Ahoy, Judy -

I can't say what the book is that you are referring to, but I can say that just about anything by Deepak Chopra, MD is uplifting as well as spiritually enlightening. Here is a link to his titles:


I would also highly recommend "Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul". It is a wonderful compendium of short, positive anecdotes. I recommend it to everyone who walks our path - survivors AND caregivers. You should consider reading it, too.

Keeping you and Mike in my prayers.
