About the book:

According to the Cancer Council, 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Similar figures are reported for the USA and UK. Inevitably everyone in these countries will be impacted by their own cancer diagnosis or that of a family member or friend. This is a unique book that provides both inspiration and proven strategies to help cancer patients, their carers and family members to navigate the emotionally devastating and physically challenging trauma of a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Author Jo Spicer has survived her own battle with cancer and realised the need for newly diagnosed patients and their support team to get a true understanding of what they were facing. By reading these stories about other people who have been on a similar journey and learning what they did to not only survive but thrive, patients and loved ones can find hope as well as practical information on how they too can survive and thrive. Survive and Thrive! How Cancer Saves Lives brings you motivational stories from survivors of different types of cancer including breast, lung, prostate, cervical and blood cancers. Aged from 3 to 76, their journeys offer hope and guidance to anyone facing life’s difficult challenges. You will discover: - Practical tips for turning physical and emotional issues into positive opportunities- How to make informed decisions on your own treatment and care - First-hand insights and strategies you can put into action- How to apply this information to any battle with adversity, and much, much more!
