A cancer survivor offers 20 crucial suggestions for the friends, family members, physicians, & caregivers of cancer patients wishing to underst&, communicate, & act with greater empathy & sensitivity.
Knowing the right things to say & do for someone with cancer can be daunting, & asking the patient for direction may feel inappropriate. Following her own diagnosis & treatment for lung cancer, Lori Hope surveyed hundreds of cancer patients & survivors for the first edition of Help Me Live. In 2010, her new survey received many surprising responses, such as: "Although I need to feel hopeful, telling me to think positively makes me feel worse," "I need to know you'll forgive me when I bite your head off," & "If you really want to help me, be specific about your offer." Presented with humor, insight, & honesty, the updated edition will help readers communicate more effectively, listen more compassionately, & make a positive difference to those living with cancer.
