Getting Beyond Tragedy, already hailed by clergy and cancer organizations alike, is both a moving reflection and an important tool for those dealing with grief. Written by Rev. J. Phillips Noble in the years during and since his son Scott's illness and death from cancer, the book also includes essays written by Noble's wife and their children, making Getting Beyond Tragedy a work that speaks to all members of families coping with tragedy. Noble hopes that the book will help families touched by the tragedy of children's cancer, and as such, all of his proceeds will go toward research to help find a cure.
