Read a sample Read a sample

The wide-ranging impact that cancer can have on a life in the months and years after the last doctor's appointment is documented in photos in this meaningful collection. In 2010, the New York Times asked readers who had survived cancer to send in their photos and answer the question, "How is your life different after cancer?" and the resulting images and essays are displayed in this book. The photos depict not only the new adventures and overjoyed faces of survivors but also the honest pictures of loss, confusion, and sadness that reveal the "not always happy" life after survival. The words that complement the images contain stories of hope, trepidation, concern, and renewal, as well as sage advice on living a normal life as the specter of cancer recedes. Also included in the book are entries from relatives and spouses who cared for loved ones who received a cancer diagnosis, some of whom did not survive their battle with the disease. This moving look at life after cancer will help other survivors and patients realize that they are not alone.
