Cancer and the Lord's Prayer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Distilled from more than two decades of firsthand experiences and affirmed by nearly two million readers of his other books, Greg Anderson's message in Cancer and the Lord's Prayer is refreshingly simple. The greatest prayer is a blueprint for the development of the soul, leading to physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. You'll see how the daily discipline of this life-changing prayer can help you leave "dis-ease" behind and discover the extraordinary life you were meant to live.

This 92 page book is not intimidating even for a non-reader.

"Force" - Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

I joined this website, CSN, a number of months ago, shortly after my daughter was diagnosed with cervical cancer. In the meantime, my mom, who is in remission for a different cancer in each breast, was genetically tested for a mutated cancer gene, and, unfortunately, she tested positive for the BRCA 2 mutated gene. Secondly, my sister, who is 36 was tested and she too came back positive for the BRCA 2 gene. I have resisted this test, but after my daughters diagnosis of cancer, felt it was necessary to do all I could to "try" to do what I could to avoid getting any cancer(s). I was tested and yes, like my mom and sister am also BRCA 2 positive. Then my sweet daughter, with the cervical cancer, which by the way, a year later from her diagnosis on 11/18/05 is"today" at least, cancerfree; she too has the BRCA 2 gene. Incidentally, my mothers mother and her mother both died of breast cancer. So, as you can see it is a very BAD gene in our family. Anyway, this is a very informative website dealing with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and is affiliated with H.Lee Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. I hope it is as helpful for anyone reading this as it has been for me and my family.
Sincerely,
Kerry

Cancer Vixen

Type: 
Book
Description: 

“What happens when a shoe-crazy, lipstick-obsessed, pasta-slurping, fashion-fanatic, madly-in-love, about-to-get married, big-city-girl cartoonist with a fabulous life finds . . . a lump in her breast?

That’s the question that sets this funny, powerful and poignant graphic memoir in motion. In vivid colour and with a taboo-breaking sense of humour, Marisa Marchetto tells the story of her 11-month, ultimately triumphant bout with breast cancer – from diagnosis to cure, and every challenging step in between.

But Cancer Vixen is about more than surviving an illness. It is a portrait of one woman’s supercharged life in Manhattan, and a wonderful love story. Marisa, self-described “terminal bachelorette” meets her Prince Charming in Silvano, owner of the chic downtown trattoria Da Silvano. A month before their wedding, she receives her diagnosis. She wonders: How will he react to this news? How will my world change? Will I even survive? And . . . what about my hair?

From raucous New Yorker staff lunches and the star-studded crowd at Silvano’s restaurant, to the rainbow pumps Marisa wears to chemotherapy, Cancer Vixen is a total original. Her wit and courage are an inspiration – she’s a cancer vixen, not its victim: “Cancer,” she says, “I’m going to kick your butt! And I’m going to do it in killer four-inch heels."
