When a person has such a sudden life-changing experience, a lot of emotions come to the fore. The first emotion was shock, followed by confusion and anger. Whom was I angry with? Let's face it, no one ever imagines himself/herself suffering from an incurable disease. When Beki P Langa was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001, she made the extraordinary decision to keep her illness a secret. In Living and Working with Cancer she talks of her need to remain strong for her two children and demonstrates her determination to survive. Armed with her Catholic faith and an optimistic attitude, she teaches us that we have the strength to overcome the setbacks we face in life. Beki P Langa is the youngest of three siblings. She has a sister, Marjorie, and a brother, Phillip, who passed away in 1997. To her, life is a song worth singing. Her favourite song is 'We have Overcome'. The aim of this book is to give 'hope' to cancer sufferers, their loved ones and carers.

Childhood Leukemia Childhood Cancer Guides

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This most complete parent guide covers not only detailed and precise medical information about leukemia and the various treatment options, but also day-to-day practical advice on how to cope with procedures, hospitalization, family and friends, school, social and financial issues, communication, feelings, and, if therapy is not successful, the difficult issues of death and bereavement. Woven among the medical details and the practical advice are the voices of more than 150 parents and children who have lived with leukemia and its treatments. As many parents have already found, advice from "veteran" parents can be a lifeline. Obtaining a basic understanding of topics such as medical terminology, common side effects of chemotherapy, and how to interpret blood counts can help improve quality of life for the whole family. Learning how to develop a partnership with your child's physician can vastly increase a family's peace of mind. Hearing parents describe their own emotional ups and downs, how they coped, and how they molded their family life around hospitalizations is a tremendous comfort. Just knowing that there are other kids on chemotherapy who refuse to eat anything but tacos or who have frequent rages makes one feel less alone. Parents who read this book will encounter medical facts simply explained, advice to ease their daily life, and tools to be a strong advocate for their child. This fourth edition contains significant updates to the information on treatments (including tailoring treatments to children's individual genetic profiles), chemotherapy drugs, stem cell transplants, coping with side effects, and resources. It also contains a personal treatment summary and long-term follow-up guide for your child to keep as a permanent record.

Tender Moments of Saffron Silk Phoenix Yard Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Book 6 of the Kingdom of Silk series. The books explore important themes of love, loss, friendships, home and belonging, in ways that pull at the heartstrings but are never over-sentimental. Honey for the soul. Everyone knows that Saffron Silk has a talent for pretending to be someone else but when the firebirds rage inside her head, and it hurts even to breathe, Saffron barely has the energy to be herself.Saffron's family don't know about the firebirds that come to warn her of terrible headaches. And Saffron doesn't know how to tell them. But her brother Perry Angel has learnt to read hearts and recognise tender moments, and Perry knows that Saffron is frightened.Frightened of what might be wrong with her and afraid that she might have to leave the Kingdom of Silk forever...In Glenda Millard's beautifully written and multi-award-winning Kingdom of Silk series, we meet the uncommon Silk family. Parents Ben and Annie Silk have a brood of five daughters ('the Rainbow Girls'), a son named Griffin, Griffin's best friend Layla who 'might as well be a Silk', Nell - the 'tiny bit magic' fairy grandmother, and Perry Angel - an adopted son who joins the Silk family. REVIEWS: "Every action, every sentiment, every character amongst the pages of this book is a manifesto for family, for joy, for being kind, for never failing to show someone you love them, and for never ever failing to recognise the tiny tender moments that make one's life complete.Those tiny tender moments, they are those that "make the soul tipsy with ordinary happiness". This is why I love this series so much; it reminds us that true happiness is found in the simplest things." -- LIBRARY MICE. "Millard weaves difficult issues in a non-threatening way, but her language is so lyrical and poetic (but without lashings of sentimentality) you cannot helped but be moved." -- SHARON F JONES BLOG. "Like with many other books I review I ended up reading book first, then the previous 4/5 books, then I reread this one. I'm glad I was able to read the others (thanks to the lovely publicist), because my initial thoughts were that Saffron's father was a bit of a lunatic, her family was a bit too wacky, and I didn't entirely understand the various relationships. The first time round I fully related to Saffron's fear of what was wrong with her, just because it is so scary having your body do things which you've no control over & don't understand. The care and support of her friends and family made me cry (I cry when I'm happy, sad, & overwhelmed), especially that of Perry whose personal sacrifice I fully understood when I read the stories where he first appears. This entire series is such a sweet read, covering emotionally complex issues in a way that makes sense. I want a grandmother like Nell! She is heaps of fun, sees the positive in everything, and knows that not everyone can learn the same way, which is why Perry ends up being homeschooled 2 days a week and attending school for the rest. It is never openly said (as far as I can remember) but it's obvious that Perry has some form of Autism or Aspergers, and the way his adopted brother and sisters view him is touching. I loved how Layla brightens everyone's life after their dear sister Tishkin passes away. I admire Saffron's parents for sticking with their way of life and not minding what other people think, for picking meaningful names, for being able to follow their dreams. Liking handicrafts made me like Saffron's dad being a wood carver and a baker - the naming books sounds exquisite! This is a series I'll reread because they are touching, and the illustrations heighten the meaning behind the story. A family focused read with lots of grandmother magic!" -- NAYU'S READING CORNER. "Glenda Millard's Kingdom of Silk books have won many awards in her native Australia, and no wonder: there are very few books, for children or adults, which describe love so clearly or so lyrically. There are seven books in the series, The Tender Moments of Saffron Silk is number six, and it is definitely worth reading them all, and in order, to really get to know the Silks. They are an uncommon lot: the rest of the world might see them as eccentric, even weird, that doesn't bother them at all. Parents Ben and Annie have five daughters ('the Rainbow Girls'), a son named Griffin and an adopted son, Perry Angel, who joins the family midway through the series. Nell is 'the tiny bit magic' grandmother, and Layla, Griffin's best friend, understands them so well she 'might as well be a Silk'. They live on a beautiful plot of land in the Australian countryside, and Millard evokes the sense of place beautifully. Each book describes a different event in their lives, but the emphasis is always on themes of love, friendship and belonging. In The Tender Moments of Saffron Silk, Saffron, the youngest and most dreamy of the Rainbow Girls isn't well. She has terrible headaches, accompanied by blinding lights she thinks of as firebirds. The Silks have already lost one daughter, baby Tishkin, and everyone is scared for Saffron. Little Perry is the one to realise just how frightened Saffron herself is though, and to work out what special help she needs. Everything ends well, and a small Silk miracle takes place at the hospital. Millard has a light touch and avoids sentimentality, this is another beautiful and affecting read." -- LOVEREADING.

Stitches W W NORTON & CO

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

One day David Small awoke from a supposedly harmless operation to discover that he had been transformed into a virtual mute. A vocal cord removed, his throat slashed and stitched together like a bloody boot, the fourteen-year-old boy had not been told that he had cancer and was expected to die. In Stitches, Small, the award-winning children s illustrator and author, re-creates this terrifying event in a life story that might have been imagined by Kafka. As the images painfully tumble out, one by one, we gain a ringside seat at a gothic family drama where David a highly anxious yet supremely talented child all too often became the unwitting object of his parents buried frustration and rage. Believing that they were trying to do their best, David s parents did just the reverse. Edward Small, a Detroit physician, who vented his own anger by hitting a punching bag, was convinced that he could cure his young son s respiratory problems with heavy doses of radiation, possibly causing David s cancer. Elizabeth, David s mother, tyrannically stingy and excessively scolding, ran the Small household under a cone of silence where emotions, especially her own, were hidden. Depicting this coming-of-age story with dazzling, kaleidoscopic images that turn nightmare into fairy tale, Small tells us of his journey from sickly child to cancer patient, to the troubled teen whose risky decision to run away from home at sixteen with nothing more than the dream of becoming an artist will resonate as the ultimate survival statement. A silent movie masquerading as a book, Stitches renders a broken world suddenly seamless and beautiful again. Finalist for the 2009 National Book Award (Young Adult); finalist for two 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards (Best Writer/Artist: Nonfiction; Best Reality-Based Work)."

Broken Mirror Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Jane is an attractive woman in her mid-thirties, tall, thin and stately. She believes she is breathtakingly ugly. Tormented by what she sees as her huge nose, crooked lip, big jaw, fat buttocks, and tiny breasts, she hasn't left her house in six years. Though she lives in the same house as her mother, she once went two years without seeing her. When relatives come over, she avoids them, hiding in her room, even on Thanksgiving. The one time she left the house - forced to see a doctor - she covered her face with bandages. Eventually, she attempted suicide. "I can't imagine any suffering greater than this," she said. "If I had my choice, I'd rather be blind or have my arm cut off. I'd be happy to have cancer." Jane has body dysmorphic disorder, or BDD. In this revised and expanded edition of The Broken Mirror, Dr Katherine Phillips draws on years of scientific research, clinical practice, and detailed interviews with patients to bring readers an updated and expanded book on this troubling and sometimes debilitating disorder, in which sufferers are obsessed with perceived flaws in their appearance. Phillips describes severe cases, such as Jane's, but also milder cases, such as Carl, a successful lawyer who uses work to distract him from his slightly thinning hair. Many sufferers function well, but remain secretly obsessed by their "hideous acne" or "horrible nose", sneaking constant peaks at a pocket mirror, or spending hours redoing makeup. BDD afflict millions of people. It isn't an uncommon disorder, simply a hidden one, since sufferers are often embarrassed to tell even their closest friends about their concerns; one woman, after fifty years of marriage, still kept her appearance worries a secret from her husband. This revised and expanded edition of The Broken Mirror provides updated information from recent research that sheds new light on this serious illness. Besides the fascinating story of the disorder itself, The Broken Mirror is also a lifesaving handbook for sufferers, their families, and their doctors. Left untreated, the torment of BDD can lead to hospitalization and sometimes suicide. With treatment, many sufferers are able to lead normal lives. Phillips provides a quick self-assessment questionnaire, helping readers distinguish between normal appearance concerns and the obsession of BDD to determine whether they or someone they know have BDD. She includes common clues to BDD - such as frequent mirror checking, covering up with clothing, and excessive exercise. Four new chapters on treatment contain updated information and recommendations on how to effectively treat BDD - as well as frequently obtained treatments that should be avoided. A revised chapter offers helpful advice and reassurance for friends and families of BDD sufferers. Profoundly affected by the disorder themselves, those who care about someone with BDD will find both helpful advice and reassurance in this indispensable book. The revised and expanded edition of The Broken Mirror is the most comprehensive book on BDD and is written by the leading expert on this disorder. It is essential reading for psychiatrists, other mental health professionals, dermatologists and plastic surgeons; for the friends and family concerned about a loved one who won't believe their reassurance; and for the millions who suffer from BDD in silence and secrecy.

Question that Never Goes Away Hodder Paperback

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Some days, the news seems too much to bear. Yet another tsunami or earthquake or flood or fire or war atrocity. One more gun-toting madman stalking young people in idyllic Norway or moviegoers in Colorado or schoolchildren in Newtown, Connecticut. We turn off the news only to get a phone call about expectant parents with a stillborn baby, or a loved one whose cancer has returned. Really, God? we ask. This again? If we have faith in God, it gets shaken to the core. What was God doing in the moment when that tragedy could have been prevented? If we can't trust God to keep our children safe or our loved ones from dying in agony, what can we trust God for? In his classic book Where Is God When It Hurts?, Philip Yancey gave us permission to doubt, reasons not to abandon faith, and practical ways to reach out to hurting people. His visits to three particularly traumatised places in 2012 raised the old problems with new urgency; now, with new perspectives and stories gathered across nearly thirty-five years, once again he tackles the hard questions head-on. Coming to the problem as a veteran pilgrim, Yancey faces the issues that often undermine faith with his trademark honesty, yet finds comfort and hope along the way. Most of all, he shows that Christians have an important role to play in bringing healing to a deeply wounded world, and discovers that there are good reasons to ask, once again, the question that never goes away.

Listen to the Cries of Your Heart Hajime Resources

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

No matter where or when we began our lives, no matter how wonderful our parents are, no one escapes wounding in the first years of life. There is always an interruption-subtle or dramatic, momentary or prolonged-in our infant and toddler needs being met. These moments, minutes, or days of separation from comfort and love impact us deeply. Adult happiness is compromised by these early-life woundings, which are often deeply buried by the child-heart. Yet these woundings continue to affect you as an adult. The cries of your heart are deep needs or longings that appeared unexpectedly throughout life. These cries can be physical symptoms, such as cancer or a heart attack, or emotional distress such as anxiety, panic attacks, and chronic anger. Listen to the Cries of Your Heart provides a self-help guide that enables you to move away from fear, anxiety, and being upset to unlock the peace, wisdom, and joy in your heart. Through her Child-Heart Method, inner-child specialist Anne Uemura, PhD, guides you to find and integrate your own hidden young hearts by accessing negative feelings, limiting beliefs and strategies, and other self-protection behaviors. This method is especially for those who: recognize they suffer from childhood wounding and haven't found a way to move beyond the consequences of such hurts of their inner child, are bewildered and plagued by limiting beliefs that cause suffering, such as low self-esteem and feeling undeserving, or are trapped with strategies of giving and pleasing that leave them unfulfilled, or are devoted to their spiritual path but are honest enough to recognize that only their minds have changed and everything at the core remains the same. Through the stories of Child-Heart method workshop participants, the author's personal story, and those of other courageous individuals who trusted enough to be guided through this process, you too will learn how to access a source of your current life challenges. This unique protocol includes the insistence of a committed relationship to the inner children and the access to them provided by creating a place of imagination. When enough child-selves have been met and integrated, you will experience changes in your life, in your beliefs and strategies, and in feeling calmer, freer, and more joyful. Listen to the Cries of Your Heart directs you to the center of your emotional life and intelligence. The potential to clear the debilitating confusion, powerlessness, and suffering lies within you-in the undefended heart. Without the layers of protection around your heart, you will know you original innocence, joy, peace, and wisdom. It is time for heart-centered living. It is time to listen to the cries of your heart.

Family Reunions explores the strains in relations between the middle-aged and their adult children, on the one hand, and their elderly parents on the other. Baby boomers in their search for advice on how to negotiate healthy relations at either end usually come up empty-handed. Amid a forest of self-help and pop psychology books, shelves of how-to manuals on parenting, where is the book that addresses the yearning that parents and grown children have for meaningful, authentic, "adult" connection? Now, here is the book that shows how autonomy and connection are not opposites, but complements. A true collaboration between a husband who is a respected journalist, columnist, and author, and a wife who was a practicing psychologist and author. Dr. Trotter died before the book was finished, yet her ideas and therapy experience rise up from these pages. Because of the unusual circumstances of its writing--Sharland Trotter learned she had cancer about a year into the work of the book--and the unusual way the author dealt with her mortal illness, this is a highly personal book. Any adult picking up this book will be able to find it relevant to her own age and circumstance because the narrative follows the entire life course. Wise and informed, the authors examine and propose strategies for the traps that parents and grown children fall into. Ultimately, they offer hope that it is never to late to create loving, respectful family ties.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Freshman Fabulous: The Girl's Guide to College is a humorous, helpful and honest interactive guide written by a recent grad, for the future grad. As a college student, Jess secured an internship all four years with companies like Disney World, Make-A-Wish and the TODAY Show. She gave campus tours every Tuesday and taught fitness classes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. She played intramural coed flag football and got a stage three concussion. As a sophomore, she made it on CNN running the Krispy Kreme Challenge (eating a dozen donuts and then running 5 miles). Her junior year, she ended up starting my own company, Headbands of Hope, which gives headbands to children with cancer. By the time she graduated in May 2013, it was her full-time job and in over 100 stores in the US and Canada. Being fresh out of college, Jess decided to put all of her tips and tricks (and mistakes) into a guide to help others who are about to embark on their college journey. The Freshman Fabulous: The Girl's Guide to College isn't filled with statistics and studies about college. It's filled with real and honest stories and advice from Ekstrom as well as other anecdotes from female grads. Topics range from what to wear on your first day of class, what to do if you fail a test, how to land internships, studying abroad, what to eat (and what not to eat) at the dining halls, dating, what to do when you have roommate troubles, joining clubs, picking electives and important topics like safety on campus and alcohol. One of the most unique parts about this book is the interactive opportunity. Readers will be encouraged to map out their own college career and goals along the way by using helpful guides. This book isn't a "how to book" to live a college experience like Jess did. But rather, a compilation of lessons learned in college. Through this book, readers will be able to use her stories as a foundation to map out their own college journey.

Violet Hour LITX

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From one of our most perceptive and provocative voices comes a deeply researched account of the last days of Susan Sontag, Sigmund Freud, John Updike, Dylan Thomas, Maurice Sendak and James Salter - an arresting and wholly original meditation on mortality. In The Violet Hour, Katie Roiphe takes an unexpected and liberating approach to the most unavoidable of subjects. She investigates the last days of six great thinkers, writers and artists as they come to terms with the reality of approaching death. Roiphe draws on her own extraordinary research and access to the family, friends and caretakers of her subjects. Here is Susan Sontag, the consummate public intellectual, who finds her commitment to rational thinking tested during her third bout with cancer. Roiphe takes us to the hospital room where, after receiving the worst possible diagnosis, seventy-six-year-old John Updike begins writing a poem. She vividly re-creates the fortnight of almost suicidal excess that culminated in Dylan Thomas's fatal collapse on the floor of a Greenwich Village tavern. She gives us a bracing portrait of Sigmund Freud fleeing Nazi-occupied Vienna only to continue in his London exile the compulsive cigar smoking that he knows will hasten his decline. She shows us how Maurice Sendak's beloved books for children are infused with his lifelong obsession with death, if you know where to look. And from James Salter she learns that 'we make our own comfort.' The Violet Hour is a book filled with intimate and surprising revelations. In the final acts of each of these creative geniuses are examples of courage, passion, self-delusion, pointless suffering and superb devotion. There are also moments of sublime insight and understanding where the mind creates its own comfort. As the author writes, 'If it's nearly impossible to capture the approach of death in words, who would have the most hope of doing it?' By bringing these great writers' final days to urgent, unsentimental life, Katie Roiphe helps us to look boldly in the face of death and be less afraid. Biographical Notes Katie Roiphe is an important voice in non-fiction. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Esquire, Harper's and The New Yorker. She has also written widely for the UK press.
