Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Cancer Book

101 Stories of Courage, Support & Love

This collection of 101 stories of courage, support and love is a support group you can hold in your hands.

These intimate stories by cancer patients and their loved ones, medical professionals, and friends, are a must-read for anyone affected by cancer. Writers share all their experiences — from the initial diagnosis, to breaking the news to loved ones, to discussing the effect on home, school, and work. Stories also cover securing a medical team, living through an ever-changing self-image, the embarrassment of losing hair, and discovering a new spirituality.

Plus a Bonus Book—the inspirational frank memoir It’s Just a Word by cancer patient Elizabeth Bayer
