Excerpt from What Makes Them Amazing Foreword by Dr. Joanne Porter
What Makes Them Amazing is a stunning account about real people who have had to face their fears concerning their own cancer diagnosis, the intensive treatments, adn the possibility of losing everything. This collections sets itself apart from other sympathetic cancer books by telling the personal stories of several teen and young adult patients who lived through their cancer diagnosis, realized their own mortality, and coped with their newly defined life while on chemotherapy. This book inspires hope for those of us struggling with adversity and perhaps similar medical problems. Janine Cammarata has captured the pulse of life in these individuals. Her interviews reflect the very thing that helps them survive in the jungle of cancer: HOPE.
