On Both Sides of the Diagnosis: A Survival Guide for Children and Adults Who Are Just Beginning a Fight With Cancer, Written by a Childhood Cancer Survivor Who Became a Doctor
by Terry O. Scott
Death crept closely to me when at fifteen years old I was diagnosed with leukemia. Within a few days, a priest came to my room at Children's Hospital of Michigan, in Detroit, to administer my last rites: prayers said to the dying and the dead. However, I would not go gently. I am now a physician, and in this book I will tell you how I rose to capture my dreams, and how my story can help you.
