Personal encounters with cancer, that is a very deep book, dissimilar to normal non-fiction books we read. Reading true stories of people who faced the hardships of having to deal with one of the most deadly diseases, that is heart-touching and strong of them to express what they went through.

I applaud the author and the individuals who were willing to share their personal stories. Cancer is not easy to talk about. But unfortunately, it is a reality for far too many people.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

when someone diagnosed with cancer, it feels hopeless but support from loved ones is a great help. A very heart touching story.

... Margaret's (breast cancer) story is the final one, and it's no coincidence that she and the author share the same name. This is the story of Margaret Phalor Barnhart herself...
Wow, this got me, like my heart stopped for a millisecond right there (read it twice)
I've never thought much about Cancer quite this way and though I can't exactly relate to it for the fact that I've never known anyone suffering from it up and personal, the delicate presentation of each person's specific condition and trials spark deep empathy, yet serious respect for the courage in telling their stories. It certainly deserves a 4star rating. Same goes for your reviews as well, they're usually insightful. Thumbs up!

It sounds like this can be a shining light of positive thinking for people who are dealing with this, and/or people that want to understand more about this illness. I am so happy to see books like this out there! Well done on the review. I will have to check this out!

A book that must be read by people who have cancer too or relatives by cancer patients. I think this book is really helpful for them to gain hope. Congrats on this great review.

Thanks so much for this review. I'm on my second round of cancer, just recently diagnosed again, and am a little cancered-out, talk-wise. It's actually one of the reasons I am reading so many more books now; they do offer an escape! But this one sounds like a must-read, especially since you said it was a short read and I'm still not sure I want to spend that much time on a topic that sometimes seems very grim to me. It also sounds like a hopeful book. I shall see.

It's a good review, the writer has done humanity a great favour for putting these experiences together. I think anybody interested in health information should go for this book.

Great review! Made me want to read the book. Sickness of all kinds can be so isolating, and it is incredibly therapeutic to read stories of others who are in similar situations - especially when those stories are personal. I'll be bookmarking this one to recommend to a friend!

Great review! This sounds very informative and like a great book for those going through it in any capacity to read through. My father had border line stage 4 colon cancer. They classified it as stage 4 because the tumor had just started to perforate the colon wall when they performed the surgery to remove it.

Now several years later he is cancer free, but that year was the most terrifying year of mine and my families life. So many times my father wanted to give up. Come to find out my father has a genetic mutation called Lynch Syndrome that makes him predisposed to certain cancers. This past April we found out I also have the same genetic mutation and after my son is born I will have to under go surgeries and tests/procedures to ensure I don't go down the same path as my dad.

This is a book I will be adding to my collection!

Thanks for the review. Many women especially in my country are ignorant of this dreadful disease and creating great awareness is very essential. Right now my aunt is battling with cancer of the breast which has spread through her organs. This book will help a lot and kudos to the author for this amazing piece.
