    We really can live well with cancer!

    No doubt about it -- cancer is scary. 'Here for Now' provides not only a validation of that fact, but then helps you get past that part. The author shares her insights as an expert in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction AND as a cancer survivor. She has presented a well-balanced mix of personal experience, truly helpful suggestions and simple 'exercises' that really work. This book shows that you can have cancer, feel the fear, and still live well.
