This practical, compassionate, and inspiring book helps people with cancer navigate the often complex and difficult journey from diagnosis through treatment and life after disease. It illuminates the challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis and provides inspiration and guidance to help you not only to find the right doctors and care plan but also to cultivate hope and purpose.

In Cancer with Hope, former CEO Mike Armstrong chronicles his experience with leukemia, prostate cancer, near-fatal sepsis, and a crippling autoimmune disease. Mike shares how his often difficult journey from humble beginnings to leading some of the world's top corporations taught him the importance of hope and purpose, tools that proved invaluable throughout his cancer journey.

More than the tale of one man's experience with cancer, this important book includes expert advice and vetted resources to help patients best manage their disease, as well as compelling stories from a wide range of cancer patients who have faced seemingly insurmountable odds yet managed to maintain hope and find meaningful purpose.

Reviews

Demonstrating the importance of having hope during a cancer journey, Mike Armstrong speaks clearly and credibly to this topic through his own personal experiences. Cancer with Hope is frank, direct, and inspirational.

Educating patients on the purpose of hope in the cancer trajectory, Armstrong's book stands out from others written by cancer survivors. I would recommend it to patients and professionals involved in cancer care.

Well written, compelling, and thoughtful, Cancer with Hope hooks the reader from the prologue. It's informational and educational while being sympathetic and hopeful.

Mike Armstrong has provided a guide for how to navigate health care and life after a cancer diagnosis. His irrepressible message is to take charge of hope in the face of cancer.

Mike's accounts of his battles with cancer highlight his courage and perseverance and offer inspiration for cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers.
