Publisher's Summary

Since the now ubiquitous LiveStrong wristbands became available in May 2004, the Lance Armstrong Foundation has raised more than $50 million for cancer survivorship programs, and the signature phrase has become a battle cry for those who fight the disease every day.

Now, the Lance Armstrong Foundation has compiled, from hours of videotaped interviews, poignant and dramatic personal accounts from cancer survivors. Covering a wide range of subjects, from grief to spousal relationships, employment discrimination to coping with medical bills, infertility to fear of recurrence, survivors share their experiences and speak candidly about how cancer has impacted their lives. For 24-year-old Amy, it's how her illness changed her relationship with her parents. Mike, a male survivor of breast cancer, talks about gender stereotypes and genetic testing. And Eric, the father of a five-year-old survivor of a brain tumor, recalls how friends and strangers helped his family with financial issues and how the experience brought him and his wife closer together.

While heartbreaking at times, these powerfully honest stories are ultimately uplifting and extremely reassuring to patients and their families. They offer the wisdom and hope that only survivors can give. Live Strong is a remarkable testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

Great 4 Everybody

This audiobook is fantastic. I have never had cancer, but listening to this audiobook gave me a respect for how remarkable cancer patients really are. This book gave me a unique insight into how to deal with cancer and how to help others deal with cancer. I learned how people of all ages, stereotypes, and athletic ability were able to beat cancer. The stories will change your life and give you a different perspective. I learned tips to help me if I ever receive cancer, and ways to help out friends and family who will be diagnosed in the future. As far as I am concerned, this title is a must for anybody who is close to their friends and family--especially people who have recently been diagnosed with cancer.
