“Smiles from the Clinic: A humorous look at cancer”
This is a cartoon book meant for cancer patients, their friends and families, health care professionals and anyone else who has been touched by cancer. It shows that humor is all around us, even with a diagnosis of cancer.
We use humor and smiles to deal with stress in our daily lives, and I believe that these approaches (where appropriate) should be used when dealing with cancer patients as well. All the stories shown in the book are based on my real life experiences…..(Dr.) Rajiv Samant
Having worked in the cancer business for over 25 years as well as being interested in education and communication, I realize that cancer is still often viewed by many as all doom and gloom. People think that my job must be very serious, sad and depressing. However, there is much more humour and positivity when dealing with cancer patients than you might think. In fact, since cancer will affect almost half of all North Americans, it might be beneficial to deal with it in a positive way!
