A MUST-READ “SURVIVORSHIP MANUAL” FOR ANYONE BATTLING, SURVIVING OR AVOIDING CANCER
Description: Can even CANCER have its perks? Ask cancer survivor, Florence Strang. Six months after being diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, Registered Psychologist Florence Strang found herself faced with a grim 50% prognosis of survival. She knew she could choose to face this journey by focusing on the harsh, ugly realities of cancer, or she could choose to confront it with a positive attitude. Being acutely aware of the mind-body connection, she chose the latter. While going through grueling chemotherapy, Florence challenged herself to find 100 Perks of Having Cancer, and to keep her committed to this goal, she decided to blog these perks. Florence then happened upon another feisty breast cancer survivor in the blogosphere, Susan Gonzalez, who blogged as The Savvy Sister. This Registered Nurse, award-winning health blogger, and stage 3 breast cancer survivor, was on her own mission to share the nuggets of truth she had uncovered about how to avoid cancer, how to increase the odds of surviving a cancer diagnosis and how to reduce the risk of recurrence, through simple lifestyle changes. 100 Perks of Having Cancer Plus 100 Health Tips for Surviving is a marriage of the two blogs that provides the ultimate “Survivorship Manual” for anyone who has ever had a cancer diagnosis.
