Dancing with the Diagnosis
Steps For Taking The Lead When Facing Cancer
Michelle Waters, Foreword by Robert H. Schuller
"Dance with me," Cancer commanded. "No!" I shrieked in a fusion of fear and disbelief. I wanted nothing to do with this would-be suitor and surely couldn't comprehend why he had chosen me in the first place. Before I could make sense of the insanity, I had to realize that this dance was not optional. And so began Michelle Waters' dance with leukemia.
In this book, Waters pairs her cancer experience with her expertise as a university instructor, and encourages readers to take an active part in their healing process through the use of effective, positive communication. This practical, colorful guide is an essential take-along companion for both those facing a life-threatening disease and their caregivers. Short, informative chapters filled with activities and inspiration make this a particularly useful and empowering read.
