My Dad was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. I ordered this book along with a more clinical book on lung cancer. The, "Voices of Lung Cancer" book provided great insight into many individuals' learning of their diagnosis and prognosis, how they received the news, and how they chose to fight cancer. It is very inspirational and it gave me a great deal of hope because it talks about people who chose to fight cancer vs. settle for their prognosis. The book is written from the point of view of the cancer survivor as well as caregivers and friends. A few chapters in the end talk about people who didn't win the fight. I learned so much from reading this book and I highly recommend it.

I submitted a story, so of course I am happy with the book. However I still find the stories good and interesting

The personal stories included in "Voices of Lung Cancer" are poignant and true. These stories put a different face on lung cancer, and, amazingly, they're filled with hope and humor. Stories like Susan Long's "Rediscovering Daddy" and Barbara Terrell's "Now I Understand" give the disease a face and help others who are dealing with similar situations. The fact that Law & Order's S. Epatha Merkerson and Dr. Deborah Morosini, sister of Dana Reeve, have stories in the book only add to its interest. I highly recommend it. Shane Alexander.
