Straight Talk

    Don’t be fooled by the playful design. This is a serious little book about fear, loss, uncertainty and pain. And an uncommon look at life and death. Though direct, the advice is always compassionate. From This Moment On has been written to help each person better understand their role in the creation of health and to encourage the best outcome for their cancer journey. Plain talk and design shape a stimulating introduction to a complex topic. You’ll find contributions from patients, healthcare professionals, artists, photographers and writers. The combined wisdom of these diverse perspectives will help you to negotiate the challenges ahead.
