Item description for Finding the Light in Cancer's Shadow: Hope, Humor, and Healing after Treatment by Lynn Eib...
Overview Author and cancer patient advocate Lynn Eib, a colon cancer survivor, draws on her own experiences, the wisdom of Scripture, and the stories of others who battled cancer, to help survivors and their loved ones deal with their fears, their moods, their questions, and more.
Publishers Description Coping with cancer is sometimes more emotionally difficult "after" treatment than "during" it. There's a shadow of cancer hanging overhead and so few who really understand survivors' unique needs. With her trademark humor and straight talk, patient advocate Lynn Eib takes on the tough questions cancer survivors often ask themselves yet rarely speak out loud: "Is everyone as paranoid as I am? How do I stay positive? What if the cancer comes back?" Eib weaves the story of her own experience as a longtime cancer survivor and those of other survivors into this hope-filled, practical book designed to move readers out from cancer's shadow and into renewed purpose and joy.

A review by a doctor and fellow cancer survivor Apr 7, 2006
Looking for a way to help someone who has just finished cancer treatment? Give this book.
Lynn Eib understands the power of telling a good story, and so this book has many of them. There are enough personal anecdotes about her to convince me that she knows what she is talking about. But most of her stories are about some of the others she has helped in her role as patient advocate in a busy oncologist's office.
The stories help to point people away from the discouragements common to many cancer survivors: fearing recurrence, having to face people who insist on their staying "positive", wondering whether life will ever be normal again.
She polishes her stories with inspiring quotes and suggestions that point the reader toward the future. This is a book of hope. I highly recommend it.
From the eyes of a physician in cancer's shadow Mar 16, 2006
I read Lynn Eib's first book, When God and Cancer Meet, and found it to be the most helpful book I've ever read about dealing with cancer. I bought a case of the books and gave them out to my friends and patients who had cancer. I consider the book a "must read" for all patients with cancer.
Lynn's second bood is also excellent. It provides encouraging and helpful information on how to live during the years after receiving the diagnosis of cancer. I especially liked the chapters, "Is God Really Bigger Than Cancer" and "Living Under a Different Shadow".
As a cancer survivor, journalist, and now patient advocate, Lynn writes with skill and insight rarely seen. When patients are first diagnosed with cancer, I suggest they read When God and Cancer Meet. Six months later, as they try to return to normal life, I suggest they read Finding the Light in Cancer's Shadow.
A powerful book! A real blessing! Feb 23, 2006
I laughed. I cried. I heard from God.

What a great second book. I own the first one and this is also inspiring to someone who doubts or is at the bottom due to cancer and the aftermath of it. I had the pleasure of meeting most all of the people in the previous (When God and Cancer meet) and this book. I can attest that all the stories are true (part of my story is in here) and hope that whoever reads these books will be inspired by them and see the light of Christ even in the dark times of life. Lynn may God bless you and everyone in this book. Thanks for sticking with it and writing this book.
