Cancer only sucks on days that end in “Y” is an amazing book. It tells the story of Zachary and his battle with Cancer. It is told from his Dad Scott’s point of view. Scott uses humor to take us though Zachary’s journey from diagnosis up until almost today. No matter what happened in the book I often laughed though tears. Scott had a way of writing about the very scary world of Cancer in a way that makes you forget just how scary it is. He takes the dark moments and makes them so much lighter through humour but he never lets you forget the fight Zachary is fighting.
Right from the beginning, the book is filled with hope. I think that is probably the most important thing. I (touch wood) have not been affected by cancer, other than having many special friends on caringbridge and carepages who have battled the monster. But I still see Cancer only sucks on days that end in “Y” as a book that is a worthwhile read for someone like me. Why? Because it challenged the way I saw the world. The way I see my place in the world and made me realise that no one knows what the future holds.
You can buy the book by emailing Scott @ firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting his publishers website @ http://www2.xlibris.com/bookstore/bookdisplay.asp?bookid=50620 Barnes & noble, Amazon, and Boarders all apparently have it for sale too.

I challenge you, go by the book, read it and then tell me it hasn’t changed you in some way.
