The pain of cancer touches many people in various ways. It afflicts the young and the old, the rich and the poor; it does not discriminate. It robs individuals of their dignity, lays waste to human bodies and tears apart families. But it also makes those afflicted value the seemingly insignificant routine events of each day; the setting sun, dinner with loved ones, the changing of autumn leaves. For people living with cancer, each moment is precious, every breath sacred. In this special collection of Chicken Soup for the Soul, you will read incredible stories from those who have reached beyond the pain of body and soul to survive cancer.

Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul is a potent tonic for physical and spiritual healing.
