I found this book at a Goodwill Store just after a clear cancer check up and decided to purchase it. The author, herself a cancer survivor, relates that one night, a series of humorous cartoons about cancer came to her. With this book, she not only shares some of those cartoon ideas, but also humorous stories that others have shared with her. Though I didn't find anything "laugh-out-loud-funny" within this book, I did relate to and appreciate the stories that were shared. I thought the section that discussed ways you can help a cancer patient and ways to let others help you if you are the cancer patient to be very well done. ( )
