Laughter is everything in this hilarious and poignant collection of stories, poems, and limericks about the indignities of cancer.

EXAMPLE: Post-chemo fatigue is the pits. It surprises you when it hits. Just like a tsunami On the isle of Pastrami. As quick as the blitz hit then it quits. A GREAT gift! Delightfully illustrated. Soft cover.
