“This book is a collection of emails sent to my close friends and family that account for my ability to deal with cancer and the positive outlook, even under the worst of conditions. I received so many supporting emails, cards, and calls, it is what kept me going,” M.G. (Marc) Evans.

Excerpt:

Today has been a true roller coaster ride, with many twist and turns. The day started off, or actually never ended, as usual. When you are in the hospital the nurses must check on you every few hours. I don’t know about the rest of you, but when a man walks into my room in the middle of the night I wake up. So basically between blood draws and changes in medication you get little cat naps.

Well, today I need to get a shower and cleaned up no matter if I have tubes running out of my chest like a Borg on Star Trek. So I begin to gather up what I needed when Curtis arrived and found there was no Shampoo in the room. So I called the nurse and politely asked for some Shampoo. The nice lady at the other end of the call button said, “we don’t have any”. I was floored. I said, “you don’t’ have any shampoo!” She was so nice. She told me “no” again but said they had some type of shower cap that I could use. I told her never mind that I would send Curtis down to the store to buy some for me. In a few minutes a very nice lady came to room and told me she wanted to explain why they did not have any shampoo. I told her that was OK that Curtis would go buy me some. She explained politely that this was the cancer ward and none of their patients have hair.

Holy crap!! I never even thought about that since I have not lost any of my hair. I told her I never even thought about it being the cancer ward, but I was still going to do my best to prove the doctors wrong and hang on to my hair to the bitter end.
