I've just completed this book by Dawn White. On Friday we discovered that Cancer Care had a resource library for patients and their families. Imagine that? It only took us 5 weeks to even know it existed. Sheesh!! We walked out of there with our arms loaded with reading material. :-)

This book is written by a woman from Manitoba who's husband was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and how they learned to navigate the Manitoba Healthcare System. I could totally relate to so much of what she wrote and it gave me the courage to stand fast in asking for a different doctor.

I would encourage anyone that is going through a health crisis to read this book. Dawn offers so many good suggestions to help patients and their caregivers during their journey.

Thanks for the book recommendation. I find I'm paying extra attention to anything cancer-related as I face my breast biopsy on April 10th. Thank you for your blog. I know we don't know each other well, but remember I'm here if you ever need to vent or find something to do to distract yourself - like the library! :)
