The Layman’s Guide To Surviving Cancer

So I have been loathe to post updates on the status of my forthcoming book, The Layman’s Guide To Surviving Cancer: From Diagnosis Through Treatment And Beyond, because the process of getting it done and “on the shelf” has been so tedious.  Every time I have given a forecast for when it will finally be out I have been wrong.

That having been said, things are getting exciting and it really looks like we are in the “home stretch” in terms of the book actually getting out.  We have finalized the index, back cover and spine (the front cover has been done for some time now), and I am in the process of reviewing the electronic proof.  Once the few corrections I have caught for that have been done, it will be on to the hard copy proof and then, God willing, off to the printer.

Here is the most recent review I have received for the book, and I am proud to have it:

“One of the social workers at my husband’s cancer center once said that being diagnosed with cancer is similar to being dropped in a treacherous jungle without any survival training. In today’s environment of cancer care, being alert, empowered, and involved in your cancer journey has never been more vital! Just consider that most oncologists only have 15-20 minutes at each appointment to discuss protocol, short- and long-term side effects of treatment, and even expected goals and outcomes. The Layman’s Guide to Surviving Cancer is an excellent, easy-to-follow guide to help you through every step of the survival process.”

I recently was interviewed as a guest on Joni’s show and was humbled to have the chance to participate.  For anyone who missed it and wants to hear it, the interview can be heard at

Stay tuned for more developments.  In healing,
