Summary "The impact of cancer is not only physical, but very visceral - a challenge to one's sense of self and stability. This book presents the emotional course of a cancer patient through paintings she created each day after undergoing radiation therapy. The 33 paintings are arranged chronologically - from the first to the last day of her treatment, and include accompanying text explaining her mood and feelings at the time. While respecting each person's unique experience, Sally Loughridge has created a resource to encourage expression, sharing and connection among cancer patients and their loved ones"-- Provided by publisher.
