One Woman, Three Cancers
Choosing Hope: One Woman. Three Cancers. is the story of how Munira Premji battled three advanced cancers: Stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma, Stage 3 multiple myeloma, and Stage 3 breast cancer, within a period of five years. Written as a series of anecdotes based on entries from a blog the author started shortly after her first diagnosis--when her focus was simply on surviving--it tells an inspirational story about resilience, courage, and hope in the face of overwhelming odds. It explores and shares the author's experiences at home, in the community, and in hospitals, revealing with utter honesty and catching humour her moments of utter darkness and light, of intense pain and blissful but precarious relief.
Choosing Hope captures the psychological, physical, and emotional trauma of a cancer diagnosis and treatment. It is easy to read and anecdotal in style and will have special appeal to recently diagnosed cancer patients, survivors and their families, to caregivers, and to many others facing health challenges.
