Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097160679X, Paperback)

Cancer survivors, their family members, and their friends will find comfort in these inspirational stories told by black cancer patients. Covering every facet of the disease as it affects a person's life, including diagnosis, treatment, family involvement, spiritual strength, and healing, these stories, poems, journal entries, and letters address such complex issues as coping with the shock of the initial diagnosis, deciding among various forms of treatments, and dealing with conflicting emotions of anger, sadness, and hope. Helping to heal the mind, body, and spirit, these courageous and thoughtful reflections seek to lighten the burden that all cancer survivors and those who care for them must bear. Celebrated poet and cancer survivor Nikki Giovanni contributes a moving introduction to these inspirational pieces.
