Little Happy Dance

Beautiful Life with Cancer

Love my doctors at Duke University Hospital. Love. Love. Love.

I love Dr. Perkins. Brilliant, kind, over the top amazing endocrinologist. She told me she would call me with the results of my biopsy.

Love to hear the sound of her nurse on the phone. Relief. One day turn around. Breathe. Her nurse’s voice means she did not feel the need for it to be her voice.

“The results of your biopsy are negative.”

I love Duke. I love even more when I don’t have to go there.

New Beginnings
The Triumphs of 120 Cancer Survivors

By Bill Aron

Over 4,500 patients are diagnosed with cancer each day. Not too long ago, this diagnosis would have been considered a death sentence, but, thanks to advances in treatment, there are almost fourteen million survivors in the U.S. Hearing the words “you have cancer” no longer has to mean an end to your life. Instead it can mark the start of a new beginning.

Bill Aron’s New Beginnings: The Triumphs of 120 Cancer Survivors (Skyhorse Publishing; April 14, 2015; ISBN: 9781632206640; $24.99) is a book for and by those who have endured one of the greatest hurdles of their lives. Featuring a collection of narratives and photographic portraits of men, women, children, and families of varied ages and ethnicities, New Beginnings will inspire hope in its readers. New Beginnings is the perfect gift for anyone diagnosed with cancer, or their family, loved ones, or friends. It is THE GIFT OF HOPE. The triumphs of the 120 cancer survivors, and what they have in common is something every cancer patient should know.

While cancer may have ushered in one of the most difficult periods of the lives of these 120 survivors, it also ignited one of the most profound. Coming from all walks of life, survivors include Sally Craigen, who never stopped enjoying life, even after her second cancer diagnosis three decades after her first; Rabbi William Cutter, already a survivor of three heart attacks by the time he faced prostate cancer; Sophia Colby, who, following her cancer diagnosis at fifteen months old, has endured more in her ten years than many people do in their entire lives; professional basketball player Coby Karl, who hasn’t let thyroid cancer stop him from pursuing his dreams; and over one hundred others.

New Beginnings will alleviate fears, inspire strength, and give hope to the possibility of a fresh start. It is a project by and for cancer survivors: a touching collaboration of their ideas and sensibilities—their words—with Bill Aron’s beautiful photographs. This is their book.
