Thank God I Got Cancer: I'm Not a Hypochondriac Anymore! by Angelina Assanti can aptly be described as hilarious, a rare gift to cancer patients and those who take care of people suffering with terminal illnesses. There are lots of books out there to educate readers on how to live with cancer and with cancer patients and sometimes people don’t need those. Award-winning author Assanti seems to remind readers that there is a time to take life less seriously, to laugh it out, and this book clearly shows that humor can be the path to embracing any kind of situation. The author leads readers through her personal experience, from the time she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in July, 2015, through the different moments of her treatment, to offer insights on what it takes to live with cancer.

Thank God I Got Cancer: I'm Not a Hypochondriac Anymore! by Angelina Assanti is a powerful tool anyone can use to transform a curse into a blessing, and the author offers a lambent light that can guide patients and those living with them toward hope. This book will also help anyone understand the emotional and psychological changes that take place in the lives of cancer patients as they struggle to come to grips with the reality of the monster eating their life away. Assanti's prose is beautiful and she knows how to connect with readers through her masterful use of humor. This book offers a whole new approach to living with cancer, and anyone with any kind of terminal illness will benefit from her insights and wisdom. This is a book that will entertain you and put a smile on your face, even in the heart of harrowing grief, a book to be read and shared.
