A Time to Hear, a Time to Help: Listening to People with Cancer

Front Cover
Free Press, 1993 - Health & Fitness - 303 pages
A Time to Hear, A Time to Help is a personal testimony to the often difficult and painful process of learning how to listen. Through portraits of his relationships with his patients, their families and friends, Rosenblum teaches us to understand the problems cancer patients face. For those with cancer, the fear of being reduced to the progress of a terrifying illness is as great as the fear of death itself, and as coping with illness brings out the deepest emotions and concerns of the patient, often the most thoughtful, comforting thing one can do is to just listen.
