Item description for From Kansas to Oz: Finding an Oasis of Hope And Love (Noble Family Chronicles #1) by Gail Larson...
Imagine sneaking a peek into your sister's diary and discovering the words, "I have cancer." Reading From Kansas to Oz is similar to that. As a cancer survivor, this author tells it like it is. She candidly shares her own experiences as well as those of other cancer victims she's come to know.
Interwoven with Dorothy's adventures in the "Wizard of Oz", the accounts are based on the true stories of many patients the author encountered during her quarter of a century nursing career, combined into the characters of Louis, Trisha, and Luke. Learn about the thoughts, emotions and real life experiences of people with cancer. It will help you face your own disease, or give you insight into the hearts of others who may be fighting this battle.
Meet Louis, a seventy-one-year-old man who has never said, "I love you" to anyone . . . and now may never have the chance.
Meet Trisha,wife, nurse, and mother of a twelve-year-old boy who is about to lose his mom to a disease he can't possibly comprehend.
Meet Luke,a little boy whose only wish is to get well enough to play soccer. His single mother does her best to obtain care for him, but circumstances place him in the middle of the adults who are receiving treatments. His interactions with Louis and Trisha bring innocence, humor, and even fun, to the emotionally-charged situation in which they find themselves.
Their diary entries are refreshingly honest revelations, woven together by truth and humor.
