"This is a deeply personal, extremely useful, well-researched and well-written book. I know of no one who has not found themselves in this situation: this feeling of helplessness, of wanting to retreat, to forget, or to hide when a friend or coworker is diagnosed with cancer. This book is a must-read if you know someone who is struggling to overcome cancer.
Ms. Benish offers honest and practical advice for how to help and leaves you feeling empowered and motivated. The writing is succinct and yet moving and she will draw you in with her personal experience, useful information, and her down to earth style."
"How To Help Someone With Cancer is a wonderful book that explores the true pain of a person suffering from a serious disease such as cancer, and at the same time it delves into several ways of helping that person. It is a remarkable story regarding Erin, a courageous, strong, young girl and of her fantastic family.
Throughout their lives, people get obsessed with material goods and take for granted that they'll have good health. This book really helps people focus on the truly important things, things like life per se, family, health, helping others, all things that will make us feel completely fulfilled.
Shannon Benish is a great author and an even greater mom. Her love for her child should be a source of inspiration for everyone. I'm looking forward to reading more of her life experience."
