Over 600,000 Americans die from cancer every year, leaving behind loved ones with heavy hearts. Part of the award-winning Grief Diaries series, Surviving Loss by Cancer offers inspiring real-life stories of grievers who take us on their own poignant journey beginning with their loved one’s first symptoms, to the moment of diagnosis, through to their loved one’s final breath, and beyond. Filled with understanding and compassion, the stories serve as a life raft in the storm of emotions, and offer readers hope, strength and courage to transition into life without their loved one.
