Cancer Etiquette: What to Say, What to Do When Someone You Know or Love Has Cancer by Rosanne Kalick
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


At last, the definitive guide on how to respond when someone says, "I have cancer." Two-time cancer survivor Roseanne Kalick helps readers communicate caringly with the cancer patient. Many have had the gut-wrenching experience of having a friend or loved one reveal they have cancer, yet few can figure out how to react. Using real stories, Kalick conveys how much most people really want to say and do the right thing - and how they often fail. Even those in the medical profession who work with cancer are guilty of etiquette "don'ts." The book is intended for patients, caregivers, family members, and friends.
