A must read for patients, caregivers, and anyone looking for inspiration!  

“When Karin Miller’s husband, Thom, was diagnosed with cancer, she found writing poetry helped her cope. Miller, a full-time writer and editor, guessed that others would, like her, find their experiences with cancer best expressed through poetry. So began The Cancer Poetry Project—a national effort to collect poetry that captured the cancer experience. More than 1,200 poems poured in, and the award-winning collection includes the best 140 entries: poems by published poets and first-time poets covering a wide range of themes including denial and anger, hope and recovery, even humor. Poets include patients, spouses and partners, family members, friends and caregivers.” Cancer Poetry Project
