A New Book- What Helped Get Me Through

Dr. Julie Silver,a breast cancer survivor and assistant professor at Harvard Medical School wanted to write a book to "provide hope and reassurance for those who are struggling with the cancer experience". She approached the American Cancer Society,set up an online survey and contacted cancer organizations and their members to share how they got through their cancer diagnosis and treatment. She enlisted quotes from leaders in the oncology field and well-known cancer advocates like Lance Armstrong and Carly Simon. Hundreds of survivors filled out the survey which lead to the newly released book
What Helped Get Me Through- Cancer Survivors Share Wisdom and Hope

Since I filled out the survey my copy of the book came in the mail the other day with a nice thank you from Dr. Silver. She chose five of my quotes to include in the book.

I've just started reading the book and appreciate reading all the survivors quotes.

Thanks Dr Silver and ACS for publishing this book.


Every Day is A Blessing!
