The reality of cancer treatment.

A very realistic look at an ugly subject.
I requested this book in exchange for my honest review because my family is experiencing a similar situation.
My brother had a port put in but unfortunately it didn't shrink as much as expected so the colostomy surgery is next.
It's hard to watch someone you love be in such incredible pain they don't have any fight left in them.
I'm recommending this book to everyone out there experiencing this hell.
I think listening to this very personal raw account will inspire others like my brother to keep going even when it feels impossible.
This book is one man's heartbreaking journey through the emotional process of fighting cancer and the side effects of treatment.
The narrators performance was poignant in conveying the authors trials and tribulations.
From the compassionate and caring professionals he encounters throughout his treatment to the unsympathetic battles with the health insurance system.
Surviving cancer should not depend on how much money 💰 you have in the bank.
Unfortunately for so many it does.
I wish this author a very successful recovery.
I think documenting and sharing his journey is courageous and inspirational.

Take a trip through a cancer survivor's hell

Not the kind of work for a sunny afternoon. More for a dreary day when you're in a contemplative mood anyway. I played this while driving around for work and wound up on another man's journey through cancer. The narrative, about an hour in duration, comes from the journal of a suffering patient who not only has the disease to deal with, but the system. Raw emotion sears through, and you find yourself engulfed in his story.

Fortunately for all of us, there are caring people, good places to get care, and stamina on the part of the patient. More than once there was inclination to resign, but determination won the day.

Sad to think that there are millions of people around the world suffering in their own similar ways all the time. Like I said, not for the faint of heart or those who like a cherry on top.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
