Based on the blog and personal journal Hollis Walker wrote during her journey through breast cancer, The Booby Blog: A Cancer Chronicle shows us what living with cancer is really like. While most people may assume the physical aspects of cancer are the worst of it, Walker's real-time writing reveals a relentless and intense parade of emotional and spiritual responses marching beneath the surface: anger, fear, uncertainty, isolation, and threats to identity, self-esteem and faith. During her search for meaning in the midst of this chaos, Walker discovers a secret: we must embrace illness as part of our spiritual journey in order to become the authors of our own healing. With honesty, immediacy and humor, The Booby Blog: A Cancer Chronicle offers inspiration and hope to those facing life-threatening illness and the people who care about them.
