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 twenty-four-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. LiveStrong is a remarkable testament to the resilience of the human spirit.From the introduction by Lance Armstrong:My work with the LAF shows me daily that sharing our stories and learning from one another’s experiences helps us cancer survivors continue to survive. Some people think the cancer experience is only about the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, as if after the disease goes into remission, it no longer exists. But survivorship goes beyond remission. Survivorship is an evolution.

Live Strong: Inspirational Stories from Cancer Survivors - From Diagnosis to Treatment and Beyond by the Lance Armstrong Foundation is a MUST read. Not only for those diagnosed with cancer but by anyone who has ever known anyone with cancer, all Survivors and anyone else.

Cancer is an Equal Opportunity killer, it is small and insidious and needs to be eradicated from the World.

This book was one of the first books from The LiveSTRONG Foundation that I read and between it and my Faith in God I am now a two time cancer survivor. Did the book cure me? No Did God cure me? Yes, I believe he did. However, I would not have had as many tools at my disposal if it hadn't been for this book.

The book is a collection of stories told by twenty-six people on a terrifying roller coaster that is out of control ... they have been diagnosed with serious life-changing cancer. But they all have hope and they all develop the inner strength to continue their lives with the drastic changes that cancer forces upon them.

The people are unforgettable ...

- the college senior who found out in her last semester ... just when she was ready to start a wonderful and exciting life journey - now bravely struggling with feelings of isolation while working to raise money for other cancer survivors.

- the cancer doctor who got cancer himself, played with his kids, wound up with a divorce, and eventually returned to work with a new understanding of what his patients are experiencing.

- the twenty-four year old woman whose basketball career ended when she was diagnosed in eighth grade.

- the teenage boy who struggled through a cancer-filled `coming of age' period unlike any other but who has now found some peace and even has a girlfriend.

- the Asian woman who became distraught because she knew something was wrong inside - and who eventually had to force her doctors to figure out that she had cancer.

- the father of four who became a cancer survivor when his five year old son was diagnosed then became blind and now is learning Braille.

- the forty-five year old woman who calmly, almost light-heartedly wonders if she will expire before her credit card does.

It is became clear to me that the survivors in LiveSTRONG are really describing the heart-wrenching emotional grieving process that they struggled through. Someone has died and it is them - the other life, without cancer, that they will never have. This is something that as a Survivor now, I truly understand. Cancer may leave your body but it never leaves your life.

I am very grateful to Amazon for carrying this book.

I would recommend this book to anyone, as it is not just for cancer survivors.

Liked it, wish there was a bit more from Lance in it though. Had to order it for a class and there are some really nice stories in there.

Shipping was faster than expected, came as described.

This was a book I bought when going through with chemo. I thought it would be an interesting book to read to explore others outlooks on life after chemo, but I just never got into reading it. Maybe someday.

I love this book! I'm currently reading this after completing chemotherapy Dec 1st 2014. If anyone has experienced going through chemo they can definitely relate to the stories in this book and get a lot out of it. The writers share some positive outlooks which is a bonus. Live strong fellow warriors!

This book was truly inspirational. Don't let the lance Armstrong fiasco deter you from reading these stories. Cancer is real and so are the lives of these survivors.

This is one of the most uplifting books I have come across in a long time. Cancer survivors tell their own unvarnished stories. They tell of the trials and tribulations that come along with a cancer diagnosis. I was very surprised by how many people said that their cancer diagnosis transformed their lives in a good way by making them live each day to its fullest. Another recurring topic was when to tell someone you are dating that you have had a cancer diagnosis. The people profiled had a wide variety of cancers, many I never had heard of. This is an excellent book to offer hope and an education. I heartily recommend this book.

The stories are remarkable, told simply in the words of real people, not professional authors. The book is certainly a monument to hope and optimism and living strong.

But there is something deeper about this book, both more disturbing and more profound, that I can not quite put my finger on. Perhaps it is because I am reading Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking, an extraordinary journey with her during her year-long reaction to her husband's sudden death. It is becoming clearer to me that the survivors in Live Strong are really describing the heart-wrenching emotional grieving process that they struggled through. Someone has died and it is them - the other life, without cancer, that they will never have. And there is such difficulty in letting go.

Read this book. It is much deeper than inspiration. By David Roddy, Cancer Survivor and Author of North Pond Dawn.
