My Cancer Year by Curtis Pesmen
MyCancerYearNot long after turning 40, Curtis Pesmen, author, health editor, Hollywood husband and dad, was diagnosed with advanced cancer three days before Christmas. The shock diagnosis kickstarted a journey that sent him from Denver to San Francisco, through 2nd and 3rd options, then treatment and experimental surgery for Stage 3 colorectal cancer, then recovery. Now as a survivor, he shares his insights – plus advice from other survivors and top doctors in this revised edition – on how to manage challenges of cancer that tens of thousands face each year and yet don’t quite know how to talk about. My Cancer Year will help the fast-growing group of survivors – as well as family and friends – put cancer in its place with the power of confessional memoir, healing humor and gritty, insider knowledge.
