A book unlike any other in the field. This is the one book that is written for cancer families by cancer families. Take this book with you on your journey from diagnosis, through treatment, and recovery. This book reminds us that cancer's shadow touches all of us, but it can never extinguish our love. It cannot suppress our faith. It cannot restrain our hopes. It cannot destroy our compassion. It cannot silence our courage. It cannot conquer our soul and it cannot vanquish our spirit.
