Cancer, as a diagnosis, is a hard word to hear. Upon diagnosis, both patients and their loved ones struggle with the helplessness they feel. Even more difficult still, is expressing these feelings and putting them into words. Between the upheaval, the fear, and the hope, for patients, there remains a real need to cope and make sense out of the diagnosis. This is where uplifting books for cancer patients can help.
From the words of those who have walked the road before such as patients, family members, and oncological experts, countless works have been created. These books contain the collected wisdom of others and may offer a path to peace or acceptance.
