Wendy S. Harpham, MD, FACP
Recently, Curant House announced the publication of Healing Hope: Through and Beyond Cancer by Wendy S. Harpham, MD, FACP, a physician-survivor of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and award-winning thought leader in survivorship. In this book (her eighth), Dr. Harpham presents 50 illness-related aphorisms in a format with illustrations and succinct text, which make her insights both accessible and memorable. Gender-and ethnic-neutral illustrations speak to patients of all ages and at all stages of survivorship. Readers can adopt or adapt her aphorisms, which support efforts to receive good care and live as fully as possible.
In Healing Hope, Dr. Harpham shares her hard-earned insights to encourage patients and their caregivers to think and talk about hope in new ways. Unlike most inspirational gift books, the messages work equally well for both patients looking for religion-free inspiration and for those whose religious faith is central to their identity. ■
