Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is not about cancer. It is about how David Lankes, professor and father, responded to being diagnosed, living with, and being treated for cancer. That is an important distinction because cancer is not funny. Cancer sucks. Cancer does not teach, cancer does not preach, cancer does not comfort, or inspire, or inform. Cancer kills. How one responds to cancer? That is a completely different matter.
In this cross between memoir, case study, and a lecture, Lankes takes the reader on a humor ladened trip through a Hodgkin's Lymphoma diagnosis, chemotherapy, and ultimately a bone marrow transplant (technically an autologous stem cell transplant). This audiobook is for others living through a journey with cancer. and those in the business of delivering health care like doctors, med students, nurses, and medical administrators.

Top BOOK, THANK YOU R. David, Ph.da

Much gratitude going out to the author for this life changing book. I know of what he speaks, yet lack the skills to put pen to paper.
Very Very grateful for this book, sir
I must say, you were very generous to the medical profession. Fine man indeed, write well too. Thank you.
