Thank you Michelle Rapkin for sharing.
Gift for New Cancer Patients Nov 24, 2007
ANY DAY WITH HAIR IS A GOOD HAIR DAY BY MICHELLE RAPKIN, who is herself a cancer survivor, is a great book for anyone who has just been diagonosed with the Big C. The book is a handbook of what to expect during treatments and how to cope on physical and psychological levels. She suggests many ways to avoid depression and discomforts and to endure the long process in the best ways possible. She also gives many helpful suggestions for the loved ones of the cancer patient, including gifts that are helpful, what is good and what is not good to say or do, and what is truly helpful to the patient. This is an EXCELLENT and unusual and really needed how to book.
A Road Map for Cancer Patients Oct 16, 2007
I wish I had had this book when I was first diagnosed with cancer. If every physician would give their patients this book at the time they send them for "tests just to be safe", it would be a great help to the patient, regardless of the test outcome. It is so helpful on multiple levels.
This book is written with honesty, reality and a touch of humor. It is easy to read and provides ways to be empowered at a time we feel powerless. It is a help for our friends who don't know what to do or what to say. From the first tests to the end of our cancer treatments, Michelle Rapkin gives us help and directions to get through the days of tests and treatment. There are lots of helpful reference lists at the end of the book.
A must have for anyone going in for tests for cancer and those already on the cancer journey.
Perfect book for those recently diagnosed with cancer Oct 8, 2007
Any Day With Hair is a Good Hair Day by Michelle Rapkin is a primer on what to do immediately after the diagnosis of cancer. Rapkin speaks conversationally and pulls no punches; from sex to runny noses and mastectomies, she offers information on everything. I don't have cancer, but I learned a great deal about how the illness affects people and what I can do to help. I also took some advice that I can use as a rheumatoid arthritis patient: if your doctor doesn't treat you like you think he would treat his spouse/child, he's not the right doctor for you. Much of Rapkin's advice is about small things that can make a big difference to someone with cancer. Bring tissues with you everywhere; as the hair leaves your head, it will also leave your nose, so your nose will run constantly. Rapkin is upbeat with a flair for compelling writing. She doesn't spend pages going over her own case history; she's far more interested in helping you make the best of yours. There are pages that can be photocopied for friends and family with suggestions on how best to help the patient, plus a crossword puzzle, online resources, and even prayers for all major religions specifically focusing on cancer. This is definitely a must read for those recently diagnosed and those who love them.
