Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is not about a glamorous couple; not one you will ever find in the society pages of any newspaper, but one who has a story to tell. This telling - The Lonely Journey - chronicles the journey of cancer. It Is not a story which is looking for sympathy or condolences - it is rather a story probably unlike any you have ever read. You will find it riveting...and thought provoking. It begins in a hospital room with updates to family and close friends. It continues with a thoroughly philosophical approach to what was happening. Don't be put off by the word philosophical because that is merely another word for attitude. We all have an attitude, therefore we all have a philosophy. This story leaps from the hospital room to a letter written over half a century ago. Then it takes the reader to a barren hillside on a Greek island - collecting of all things, snails. Then the reader is given an overview - tying the darkened hospital room in the dead of night, to the letter written to a solder in France, to a Greek island. The result is a look at life; a philosophy which well may change your attitude ( philosophy) resulting in a richer life - - for you! There may be a tear that drops on a page or two, and then unexpectedly you will find reason to smile, or maybe even chuckle, which wipes out the tear. -Will you benefit from reading this? -Will you enjoy reading this? Yes, I believe you will. This book is dedicated to cancer patients, and all those who love them!

Download or read book Cancer Stories written by David Michael Gregory and published by McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP. This book was released on 1999 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Each of us will be touched by cancer in the course of our lifetime – as a person diagnosed with the disease or as a family member or friend who must witness its course in someone we love. For all of us, this encounter with cancer will entail an exploration of the margins of life and death. Too often, especially once the curative stage is passed, patients and their loved ones make this journey in silence and without the full support of a medical system whose chief mandate is to "win the battle" against cancer. In Cancer Stories five people share their journeys, their stories, and the suffering they faced before their deaths. These narratives chronicle the despair, hope, and love they experienced while living and dying with cancer, giving the power of the human spirit full voice. Lessons learned are presented as "gifts" at the conclusion of each of the five narratives. This book is for people living with the disease and their caregivers. Nurses and physicians, students in any health-related discipline, as well as persons engaged in qualitative research will also find this an invaluable resource. The importance of incorporating qualitative, research-based approaches in caring for the dying emerges from the narratives. Cancer Stories points toward a more holistic research/treatment agenda, one that bridges the medical and social sciences. David M. Gregory is associate professor in the Faculty of Nursing, University of Manitoba. Cynthia K. Russell is assistant professor in the College of Nursing, University of Tennessee, Memphis.

Download or read book Metaphor Cancer and the End of Life written by Elena Semino and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-11-28 with total page 308 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book presents the methodology, findings and implications of a large-scale corpus-based study of the metaphors used to talk about cancer and the end of life (including care at the end of life) in the UK. It focuses on metaphor as a central linguistic and cognitive tool that is frequently used to talk and think about sensitive and subjective experiences, such as illness, emotions, death, and dying, and that can both help and hinder communication and well-being, depending on how it is used. The book centers on a combination of qualitative analyses and innovative corpus linguistic methods. This methodological assemblage was applied to the systematic study of the metaphors used in a 1.5-million-word corpus. The corpus consists of interviews with, and online forum posts written by, members of three stakeholder groups, namely: patients diagnosed with advanced cancer; unpaid carers looking after a relative with a diagnosis of advanced cancer; and healthcare professionals. The book presents a range of qualitative and quantitative findings that have implications for: metaphor theory and analysis; corpus linguistic and computational approaches to metaphor; and training and practice in cancer care and hospice, palliative and end-of-life care.

Book excerpt: You simply say, "Oh, no, this can't be cancer!" You talk to God like never before. And you realize it is time to get in touch with your inner self to learn who you really are. You ask questions like: "How will I come out of this, mentally and spiritually?" "Will I make it?" "Will my family make it? Have I prepared them for such a bumpy road?" Through it all, you learn to lean on God like never before, as well as on your praying friends. When treatment is over and good reports start coming in, you realize that you are a changed person. You have a new attitude about yourself; you realize you have a caring concern for others going through a similar trial. My desire is to reach out to those hurting "others", to give them hope and brighten their days. Perhaps, ultimately, even to encourage them in their personal relationship with God. Darrell Parrish is the only child of Dr. Fuchsia Pickett, renowned Bible teacher and author. Darrell was born and raised in Eden, North Carolina. He married and raised four children.

Book excerpt: Support and empower women who are coping with the pain, fear, and stigma of serious disease Being diagnosed with cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, or fibromyalgia is a traumatic event that takes place at a time when the patient is already feeling physically (and often emotionally) drained. Minding the Body combines feminist and social constructionist approaches to offer an intimate look into the ways a therapist can help clients cope with the pain, fear, and stigma of serious disease. Minding the Body offers an alternative to the reductive view of the mind-body connection and also examines the potential for growth that such experiences often allow. The essays gathered here show how an effective therapist can help the client deal with the painful and difficult emotions that exacerbate illness, while learning the emotional and spiritual lessons illness can teach. Minding the Body presents both theoretical views and personal accounts of illness, including: scholarly discussions of the issues involved in autoimmune disorders a therapist's personal experience of chronic fatigue syndrome a personal and professional exposition of a woman's struggles with injury, illness, and managed care, co-written by client and therapist suggestions for understanding the social construction of illness and treating disease from a social-constructivist point of view narratives reflecting on the change and growth of therapists diagnosed with cancer and other serious illnesses By looking at illness in the context of mind, body, society, and medical establishment, Minding the Body will help therapists, doctors, nurses, counselors, and clients deal with the grief, disappointment, and frustration of chronic and life-threatening illness.
