Passing along this email I received today from Becky McGuiness F=Check out the link below. Looks like a great project….Take care, Dennis

I got bone cancer at 21 in 2008 and now in part
remission.
I have an idea to create a brochure/book
with poems for all cancer patients regardless of cancer
and if male/female and young and old, it also have ideas,
advice and links to cancer blogs.
When I was going through cancer I found it hard to find
other cancer patients journeys to read, and just socially
communicating or reading a brochure that wasn’t
necessarily
medical information.
I’d love to add your Being Cancer Network website link on book I’m making so people can join in with your community ;-).
@FixersUK on twitter are supporting me and funding to make cancer
brochures.

It should hopefully be made around sept/oct 2013 this year.
