LiveStrong by The Lance Armstrong Foundation
Not for sale in

Since the now-ubiquitous LIVESTRONG wristbands became available in May 2004, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, founded by cancer survivor and cycling champion Lance Armstrong, has raised more than $50 million for cancer survivorship programmes. Here for the first time is a collection of the voices and personal stories of a range of cancer survivors. There is Mike, a male survivor of breast cancer, who talks about gender stereotypes and genetic testing. Eric, the father of a five-year old brain tumour survivor, recalls how friends and strangers helped his family with financial issues and how the experience brought him and his wife closer together. From cancer's effect on a marriage, to coping with grief; from financial and work struggles to insight into how cancer can change the parent-child relationship irrevocably, this reassuring, poignant and ultimately uplifting book sheds light on all aspects of living with and after cancer.
