Item Description...
Hope Publishing House Along with providing concrete suggestions to help those who face cancer, Rev. Geier, ever the pastor, decided to produce this primer, chock full of advice and explanations, with helpful appendices to boot, in order to shine some light on the dilemmas and mysteries that face a cancer patient. This practical guide has been useful to thousands of patients plus their families and friends and she has received kudos from many who have faced cancer, better prepared and better informed because Rev. Geier knew intimately what many cancer patients have gone through. When Mary Alice Geier's cancer was diagnosed, the doctors told her she had progressive lymphoma, stage four. "What is the next stage?" she asked. "There isn't any," they said. Mary Alice, a minister and minister's wife in Los Angeles, had been a campus chaplain, a teacher, and a local pastor.

As she continued to delight her congregation with her humor, so she delights her readers. "I never did like the line in 'Amazing Grace' that labels me a 'wretch,' " she says, "but last night I was, indeed, 'a-retch.' " Although Mary Alice can no longer drive or maneuver steps unaided, she determines to live as normally as possible. For her it means broadening her intellectual pursuits. "Just remember," she wrote in her church newsletter, "there may be fluid on the lung, but as of now there is no water on the brain." She delves into learning as much as possible about her illness, both to help herself and to help "bring cancer out of the closet." In a poignant chapter on "Dealing with the Perceptions of Others," Mary Alice emphasizes the importance of the loving care and concern of the family, as well as the suppor
