Reviews - What do customers think about Hope In The Face Of Cancer?
Must have if you or someone you know just has been diagnosed with cancer Jan 7, 2007
Dr. Givler has not only the knowledge of a medical doctor, she has personally gone through a diagnosis and the treatment for cancer. When I first read this book, it was as a reviewer for several magazines. I have purchased many copies now to give to people and unfortunately, know there will be more as long as we have the dreaded disease of cancer. If you are facing a diagnosis of cancer, please think about getting this book--or get one for someone you know who needs it. It is warm without sappy sentiment, practical, and like having a trusted medical friend for the journey.
Hope in the Face of Cancer Feb 28, 2006
This book was educational, inspirational, and very helpful. Since the author is a cancer survivor, she offers hope and encouragement from that perspective.
Excellent resource for overwhelmed and newly diagnosed May 27, 2005
I'm writing to tell you what comfort I received from reading your book. I read it the first time within two weeks of my husband's diagnosis and the start of chemotherapy. I have reread it again recently, and take it out when I need someone to reassure me God is in control, and to have faith. I often read sections to my husband that I feel will be of the most benefit to continue his incredibly strong belief he can beat it, no matter what the statistics say.
There is so much out there to read that I feel overwhelmed by all the information. However, very few books make you feel BETTER about this very "sucky" situation. Thank you to someone who really needed it, and appreciates it.
All newly-diagnosed cancer patients should get this book! Sep 4, 2003
This book is a fantastic resource for all cancer patients, but especially for newly-diagnosed cancer patients. Written by an MD who has cancer, it provides common sense guidance for many aspects of treating and living with cancer. I highly recommend this book for patients who have just been diagnosed. Read this book before you do anything! It is also valuable for cancer patients who have been diagnosed with a recurrence. An easy read, it is well worth the few dollars you will spend to own it.
An excellent resource for cancer patients Jul 1, 2003
As a physician and professor of family medicine at Louisiana State University, Amy Givler was familiar with cancer. Then, pregnant with her third child, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. In this well-written guide for cancer patients, Dr. Givler combines her medical knowledge with her perspective as a cancer patient and the experiences of other cancer survivors. This book is full of encouragement and hope, as well as helpful and practical information, including an appendix of medical resources.
This book is a wonderful resource for anyone diagnosed with cancer and for their family members.
