Overview

Meg Stafford adds her voice to the beautiful chorus of people who have been treated for breast cancer. TOPIC OF CANCER: RIDING THE WAVES OF THE BIG C is not about merely surviving, but about the living that happens during treatment. What sets this work apart is the joie de vivre that infuses and informs the prose.

Difficult topics are treated with openness and honesty and offer a direct line into the emotions that wash through this time, as individuals navigate cancer. The reader learns to ride the perilous waves when not dancing on them or diving through. Stafford rides the riptides, including the reader on the daily choices that arise, giving each day, emotion, and quirky occurrence the attention it requires. What results is a connection to her, to ourselves, and to life itself.

REVIEWS

"A warm, witty and wise companion for the journey." - Fran Booth, LICSW therapist at The Healing Garden

"This book should be required reading for medical students, physicians and caregivers who want to learn more about what is going on inside the head of a patient facing cancer." - George D. Demetri, MD, Director, Ludwig Center at Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center

"It's a great read, engrossing, hilarious, wonderfully tolerant of us weirdo medical types. I kept turning pages, hungry for more. And I learned a lot. Deeply moving, wonderfully astute, and written with a wicked sense of humor." - Robin Schoenthaler, MD, Radiation Oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and Emerson Hospital

"A gift. Meg articulates many of the thoughts and feelings from the time of my own treatment. She brings a light to a time when many people need to put their heads down and move through it." - Marge Maurukas

"Relevant and remarkable for anyone whose life is impacted by waves of uncertainty or personal struggle, an invaluable reminder that, in the face of life's most challenging journeys, we are not alone." - Colleen Stevens
