Teenage Cancer Journey
Teenage Cancer Journey provides insight into the issues facing young people who have been diagnosed with cancer. Written in a frank, engaging style, it captures the array of emotions that arise during an adolescent's battle with cancer. At times both humorous and heart-wrenching, Teenage Cancer Journey describes the author's personal struggles with philosophical questions ("Why me?"), as well as with practical dilemmas ("Will my wig stay on while I'm riding a roller coaster?"). It offers advice to teens on losing their hair, relating to friends and family who aren't sick, and balancing school responsibilities while undergoing treatment. The book also provides a brief introduction to cancer and includes anecdotes from others who have battled cancer as teens. Teenage Cancer Journey is a helpful resource for young people with cancer, as well as for family and friends who want to understand the teenage cancer experience. Book jacket.
