Overview

When cancer strikes, not only is the patient impacted, but all those within the patient's circle of family and friends are affected as well. A cancer diagnosis can create chaos characterized by medical consultations, surgeries, radiation and chemotherapies. Living With Cancer: Meditations on Patience and Love reveals a deep level of familiarity with these challenges to life and health. Melody Kee Smith and her husband Richard Smith know firsthand about the ups and downs of living with recurrent cancer. They have composed mediations that include brief prayers and an invitation to write or think through issues, such as being frustrated with the health care system, building support communities, and preserving a sense of the sacred in one's life. Living With Cancer is written for all those living with cancer: patients, their loved ones, and their caregivers.
