Surviving Cancer by Jane Bingham

Ancient legends are full of heroes. But heroes also exist in real life. They may not fight dragons, but their challenges can be just as awesome. In Real Life Heroes, we look at true stories of courage and heroism in the face of persecution, disaster, addiction, and disease.

Surviving Cancer contains ten true stories about young people who faced cancer-either coping with the disease themselves or helping a member of their family-and who all came out the other side. The book also contains an introduction and fact boxes with information about cancer.
