Reviewed by Daniel D Staats for Readers' Favorite

Linda Kopec has given everyone who has ever been affected by cancer a true gift of love in her book Cancer Gifts: Lessons in Gratitude, Acceptance and Perseverance. Linda invites her readers on a journey of hope and inspiration. Cancer does not just affect the patient but also has far-reaching consequences affecting family, friends, and others. This book is not only inspirational and encouraging for the patient, but Linda has a knack for encouraging the family, caregivers, and all who are connected in one way or another to the patient. The suggestions along the way, the “Ringing the Bell” sections, and the experiences she shares give (as she puts it) “hope among the fear and beauty among the ashes.” Linda shows how to thrive in the battle as well as after the cancer is gone.

What do you look for in a good guide? If you are like most people, you want someone to guide you who has been down the path before. Linda Kopec knows what she writes about in Cancer Gifts: Lessons in Gratitude, Acceptance and Perseverance. Linda survived cancer not once but twice. She had colon cancer and then, after beating the odds, she came up against breast cancer. Her writing is moving and motivating. She shares her heart. She shares her concern and compassion. She was blessed to have the loving support of her husband, two daughters, family, friends, and a supportive medical team. Linda knows everyone is not that blessed and gives ideas on how to find support. She has incorporated articles from different doctors and support persons to encourage and enlighten the reader. This book is a must-read and a real page-turner.
