Product Description

When the word "cancer" enters a person's life many questions and fears arise. What will my journey look like? What do I do next? Is there any hope? Amy Givler, M.D. a cancer survivor, warmly shares her experience and the stories of others with the voice of encouragement, faith, and strength she so desperately needed at the point of her diagnosis. With medical knowledge and insight into the path to come, Dr. Givler is able to offer answers and hope as she discusses how to: look at cancer through the lens of hope; seek, evaluate, and make decisions for treatment; draw closer to God along the journey; and face family and friends. Dr. Gilver shares more than professional wisdom; she extends her friendship. And as a guide and a fellow traveler she provides a comforting presence during an experience that too often is mired in uncertainty, fear, and loneliness. Finally, a book that can be given to anyone, male or female, who faces cancer and to the friends, counselors, and family members who accompany someone along this journey.
