Cancer with Hope

Facing Illness, Embracing Life, and Finding Purpose

This practical, compassionate, and inspiring book helps people with cancer navigate the often complex and difficult journey from diagnosis through treatment and life after disease. It illuminates the challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis and provides inspiration and guidance to help you not only to find the right doctors and care plan but also to cultivate hope and purpose.

In Cancer with Hope, former CEO Mike Armstrong chronicles his experience with leukemia, prostate cancer, near-fatal sepsis, and a crippling autoimmune disease. Mike shares how his often difficult journey from humble beginnings to leading some of the world's top corporations taught him the importance of hope and purpose, tools that proved invaluable throughout his cancer journey.

More than the tale of one man's experience with cancer, this important book includes expert advice and vetted resources to help patients best manage their disease, as well as compelling stories from a wide range of cancer patients who have faced seemingly insurmountable odds yet managed to maintain hope and find meaningful purpose.

About the Authors

Mike Armstrong is the retired chairman of the Board of Trustees, Johns Hopkins Medicine Health System Corporation and Hospital, the retired chairman and director emeritus of Comcast, and the former chairman and CEO of AT&T and Hughes Electronics. Medical writer Eric A. Vohr is the coauthor of Safe Patients, Smart Hospitals: How One Doctor's Checklist Can Help Us Change Health Care from the Inside Out. Mike Armstrong will donate his proceeds from this book to support cancer research and treatment.
