These inspirational case histories illustrating how 10 cancer patients from around the country prolonged and enhanced their remaining years are recounted with empathy by journalist Williams, and strengthened by comments of physicians vouching for the "miracles" of hope and will that defied gloomy medical prognoses. In some instances, patients pursued experimental or alternative therapies (holistic, psychological, spiritual); many joined support groups. The author credits the patients' longevity to an ability to adapt to changes in their lives while also assuming responsibility for their own healing. Preferred Choice and Troll Book Club alternates.
