Life is a Ride by Chris Joseph

This product was recommended by Chris Joseph from Life is a Ride

Life is a Ride is far beyond a success story about a fight to survive and thrive after pancreatic cancer, it is a book that investigates the healthcare system and how disempowered we have become when it comes to our own health. Through humor and vulnerability, Chris Joseph illuminates the profound role that listening to our intuitive voices and leaning in to love play in our wellbeing. The wisdom that Chris imparts through his story will be invaluable not only to a reader facing a cancer diagnosis or health crisis, but to anyone facing a challenging situation in life. I believe it even might help to avoid some of those situations altogether.

With each true story he tells in the pages, Howard invites readers to picture how they might join him in shining more light in our world.

This book is excellent for anyone, but it’s particularly inspiring for cancer patients or caregivers. Gretchen Rubin details her experiences and journey to happiness and offers actionable advice from which everyone can benefit. Cancer can be difficult, so it’s important to focus on happiness and positivity whenever possible. This book is a great way to do that.

Love, Medicine and Miracles By Bernie Siegel

This product was recommended by Brian Kaplan from Almost Happy

All oncologists and all doctors know that a small percentage of cancer patients go into spontaneous remission – ie they just get better apparently for no obvious reason. Siegel looked for a reason by interviewing these people carefully and looking for a pattern. He found that some people changed their lives dramatically on diagnosis and lived their lives in a way that was much truer to their deepest beliefs. It occurred to him that in these people, their immune systems fought harder to keep them alive – hence the ‘spontaneous’ remissions.

The Healing Power of Humor By Allen Klein

This product was recommended by Eric Jones from Couture Candy

According to science, humor is the best medicine for cancer patients. Humor reduces stress, promotes physical healing, adds years to one’s life, and is also essential for mental health. The book – The Healing Power of Humor suggests how to lighten up and take the first step towards finding humor in every trouble. Allen Klein has rightfully taught us plenty of ways to find humor when we feel like crying.

It is a book based on the true story of Patty Gelman, a breast cancer survivor. The book recounts her journey with a series of anecdotes and her year-long struggle with the disease quite candidly. It also mentions how she breaks the news to her mother, a cancer survivor.

On Death and Dying By Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

This product was recommended by Simonas Steponaitis from DoFasting

On Death and Dying is a seminal work on death, dying, and grief by a world-renowned psychiatrist and author Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. In this book, Dr. Kübler-Ross shares her pioneering work with terminally ill patients and reveals the now-famous five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. This book is an absolute must-read for anyone who wants to understand more about death, dying, and grief. It is also a book that can help you come to terms with your own mortality and the mortality of your loved ones. The most important takeaway from this book is that death is a natural part of life and that it is okay to grieve. I would highly recommend this book to anyone affected by cancer, either personally or through a loved one. This book will help you understand the process of grief and how to deal with it healthily.
