I am thrilled to bring you my stop on the book tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours for Cancer is for Old(er) People by Brett M. Cordes, Amy Calkins Teague, and Kyle Moses .
About the Book:

Miss W’s Review:
5 Stars. I don’t think my review can possibly do this book justice, I can only hope you will pick up this book and see how wonderful it is for yourself and your family members.
This is a book that I found very interesting and enjoyed, as much as you can enjoy a book about cancer. The author shares his experiences, both good and bad with his battle with cancer starting at the young age of 19. Additionally the author’s friends also share their personal stories about cancer and how it affected them.
As a cancer survivor, this was an inspiring read. The author gives advice for those battling cancer and their loved ones. The author does a good job demonstrating his authentic voice with his experiences that are real and raw yet heartwarming.
I WISH this book was available when I was battling cancer. My motto has always been that “cancer is not who you are, it is what happened to you” and the authors inspiration that Cancer should not define you is one that I related to.
I am grateful to be in remission and I am grateful for those that came before me and came after me.
This is a must read for anyone. Everyone is impacted by cancer one way or another and this book is written in a way that is inspiring and uplifting and real.
