Parnassus Books welcomes, virtually, Rebecca Whitehead Munn as she discusses All of Us Warriors.
This event can be viewed on the Parnassus Books Facebook page.
Already an award-winning author and speaker, healthcare change catalyst, and value creator, author Rebecca Whitehead Munn’s All of Us Warriors (She Writes Press, September 1, 2020) strives to demystify the challenging topics we all face. Following her award-winning memoir The Gift of Goodbye, Munn now brings twenty stories from the front lines and offers valuable support to those facing cancer.
The incidence of cancer continues to rise—but despite how many lives have been touched by cancer, hearing of a loved one or friend’s diagnosis still invokes such fear that it is hard to know what to do next.
In All of Us Warriors, Rebecca Whitehead Munn paints a realistic picture of the impact cancer has on an individual's life, and she attempts to demystify the experience by sharing heartfelt stories from twenty survivors and the loved ones of those that passed. They are mothers and fathers with seven types of cancers and all stages of the disease. Each story includes advice regarding how to approach someone you love living with cancer and tips and tricks for helping others feel joy in the midst of pain. This inspirational book provides a positive outlook of strength and perseverance through belief in a higher power, reinforcing the idea that the reader is stronger than cancer and not alone, and offering real strategies that cannot be found in online medical sites. Like a conversation with a new best friend (or twenty of them), All of Us Warriors is full of understanding, acceptance, and practical advice gained from personal experience.
