In the aftermath of this intensely focused period, survivors are often unprepared for their feelings of confusion and disorientation. Questions such as "If I am one of the lucky ones, why am I feeling so blue?" are surprisingly common. As this thoughtful book reveals, for those who survive cancer, life is never the same again.Dancing in Limbo weaves the authors' stories with those of other survivors who tackle the difficult question of what it means to really live.

Using personal examples, the authors offer down-to-earth advice on topics including:

  • Loneliness of survival.
  • How to live with uncertainty without going crazy.

  • The losses that must be grieved in order to move forward.
