Emerging: Stories from the Other Side of a Cancer Diagnosis, Loss, and a Pandemic by Nancy Stordahl is a fantastic self-help book based on Nancy’s experiences with cancer, loss, and COVID-19. Nancy covers important topics such as reconstruction, guilt, trauma, regret, loss, and various other challenges faced by cancer patients. The book helps patients to prepare for the final goodbye and regain some sense of balance and calm. In addition, dealing with family, friends, and pets is an important part of this journey. Finally, Nancy advises on how to recover and move forward. “All we have is today. We have to make the most of it. After all, living our best lives is how we honor those who don’t survive.”
A big thank you to Nancy Stordahl for writing Emerging. As a cancer survivor, I have first-hand experience and appreciate everything that Nancy talks about in her book. Every part of the book is easy to read and understand, making it a pleasure to learn from Nancy and her journey. Her opinions and concepts are well presented, and the story is smooth flowing. The account is suitable for all ages and would make the perfect gift for someone who is going through any type of illness and treatment. The book also serves as a fantastic guide for their families and friends and gives sound advice on how to treat the patient. I especially appreciated the fact that Nancy honors those who did not survive.
