What to Say, What to Do, When Someone You Know or Love Has CancerBook - 2005
At last, the definitive guide on how to respond when someone says, I have cancer. Two-time cancer survivor Rosanne Kalick helps readers communicate caringly with the cancer patient. Many have had the gut-wrenching experience of having a friend or loved one reveal they have cancer, yet few can figure out how to react. Using real stories, Kalick conveys how much most people really want to say and do the right thing -- and how they often fail. Even those in the medical profession who work with cancer are guilty of etiquette don'ts. The book is intended for patients, caregivers, family members, and friends. . . . Patients and others will find a great deal of value here. The lay-out is unadorned; there are subsection headings, but readers will have to read through t to find the nuggets. This book is long overdue. Recommended for all libraries. - Bette Lee Fox, Library Journal
