52 Days: The Cancer Journal: A True Story
“There are only a handful of exceedingly rare diseases whose diagnoses can engender as much fear and anxiety as the diagnosis of cancer. The word ‘malignancy’ alone is so pervasively menacing as to conjure the image of a malevolent being crawling through a loved one’s body … or the darkest of poisons seeping through their veins.”
—Dr. Shane Dormady, from the foreword
52 Days: The Cancer Journal is the true story of one woman’s heroic battle with a rare and aggressive cancer that persistently sought to take her life and left her in a coma for nearly two weeks. This awe-inspiring narrative is told through the eyes of her son-in-law who fastidiously documented the emotional stages that the cancer patient and her loved ones navigated; disbelief, helplessness, despair, fear, and sometimes, even hope.
52 Days: The Cancer Journal is a must read for anyone who has been touched by cancer’s pervasive reach and especially for someone who has been diagnosed with cancer and is fighting for his or her life.
