Radical Remission – This is my very favorite “cancer” book. It’s uplifting and an easy read (rare to find either one of those, let alone both, in a book about cancer). It makes a perfect gift for someone recently diagnosed, especially for those with more serious diagnoses that need help seeing a way to a possible positive outcome.

The Cancer Fighting Kitchen – This is a great cookbook. I had a friend with cancer who bought several copies of this and distributed it to people who had offered to cook for her during chemo. What a fantastic idea!

Anti-Cancer, A New Way of Life – Written by a doctor who had cancer himself, this book is full of helpful insights and guidance. It’s a little dense and less of a page-turner than Radical Remission, but still very readable and helpful.
