IT ALL STARTED ON THE EVE OF MY 43RD BIRTHDAY... With two young boys, a new lecturer position and all the commitments of an active life, Ros Ben-Moshe had no plans for a tumour to take over her life. Yet after the news came on her 43rd birthday, medical appointments turned into hours of surgery, casual conversations disappeared, and even her children started asking questions. In recovery rooms, as the clock slowly ticks, Ros Ben-Moshe starts writing. Through ups and downs, she tells it all, in an honest account of fighting the Big C, or should we say the small c? Brimming with humour, insight and sensitivity, this series of journals, written at the time, explores how we talk about and view illness, and how changing your mindset can do wonders on the journey to health. Through explanations of mindful healing techniques and the power of laughter, Laughing at cancer will inspire you to take a deep breath and start laughing.

I m sorry to tell you this your child has cancer. Each year in America those devastating words thrust parents of more than 12,000 children and adolescents into a frightening, dark tunnel dramatically changing the dynamics of each family. Because childhood cancer attacks quickly and unexpectedly, parents reel, bombarded with information regarding treatments, tests and decisions as parents echo, I ve never felt so alone. I feel like I m in a fog. From the initial diagnosis and throughout the daunting journey the twelve chapters and resources in Hope for Families of Children with Cancer weave advice, support and hope from fellow travelers and professionals who come alongside through encouraging short stories, refreshing helpful hints and inspiring scriptures and prayers. Many weary parents pull apart as communication breaks down sometimes far apart. An added study, You-niquely Made helps family members appreciate different personalities and methods of coping. Overwhelmed families find comfort and courage as writers deal with the struggles parents face balancing needs of their child; family ( the set-aside spouses and the invisible ones siblings); and self the caregiver the new normal of childhood cancer."

Teenage Cancer Journey provides insight into the issues facing young people who have been diagnosed with cancer. Written in a frank, engaging style, it captures the array of emotions that arise during an adolescent's battle with cancer. At times both humorous and heart-wrenching, Teenage Cancer Journey describes the author's personal struggles with philosophical questions ("Why me?"), as well as with practical dilemmas ("Will my wig stay on while I'm riding a roller coaster?"). It offers advice to teens on losing their hair, relating to friends and family who aren't sick, and balancing school responsibilities while undergoing treatment. The book also provides a brief introduction to cancer and includes anecdotes from others who have battled cancer as teens. Teenage Cancer Journey is a helpful resource for young people with cancer, as well as for family and friends who want to understand the teenage cancer experience. Book jacket.
