Living with Cancer: Life's Big Lessons in Small Doses (Hardcover)
In November of 2015, author Gayle Leslie Henderson was admitted to the hospital with an acute sciatica episode with extraordinary pain, which had never occurred before and has never occurred again. Her ultimate diagnosis remains HR-positive HER2-negative postmenopausal metastatic bilateral breast cancer, stage IV. That's not where the story ends, instead, it's where this story begins. In Living with Cancer, Henderson offers a collection of fourteen independent essays from her journals that stand on their own. Each chapter focuses on aspects of her journey after her cancer diagnosis and highlights lessons that cry out to be shared. The chapter division pages feature mandala images to color that encourage you to exercise your creativity with bold coloring and personal interpretation. Highly influenced by Henderson's spiritual journey, Living with Cancer offers guidance and tips for learning to manage and live with your new reality from someone who's been there and understands. She hopes to help lighten your burden and give you a sense of comfort that you're not alone.
