Building a Library

There are many books you can read that deal with cancer and the issues that arise. Some address how to face each day. Others provide information. Still more are personal stories of how the author overcame their cancer. There are even workbooks out there to help you express what you are feeling. This is important. By getting out what you are feeling, it does not stay within you and therefore, it cannot affect you in the negative.

Here is a list of books you might want to take a look at and to your library if you choose:
