"The strength of Twelve Weeks is in its thoughtful description of the emotional content of every twist in the (long) road. For people, and especially medical students, who have never dealt with adversity in this way, I think it can serve as a helpful exposure to the human side of medical care." —A.B., MD

"Your courage, your willingness to share and connect and your ultimate defiance of death is absolutely awe inspiring." —T.L.

"I want to thank you for writing such a very insightful and most poignant book...that will bring hope as well as a different perception to people that have received the dreaded "C" diagnosis. I think your adoption of alternative treatments as well as the use of state-of-the-art medical treatment will help people to feel that perhaps they have some influence on their prognosis...It really should be mandatory reading for medical doctors." —C.B.

"...incredibly fascinating and poignantly written..." —R.M., MD

"...a remarkable book and a remarkable story, but most of all I loved the fact that your grace, charm and elegance were very much in evidence throughout the book...your courage in dealing with that situation was exceptional, and I think courage is an entity in rather small supply in our society." —I.H.F., MD

"Those who are facing the struggle of cancer treatment, and those who live through it will find kinship and hope in this book. Cancer patients will also find solace and wisdom in (your) account of (your) difficult journey. Hope rewarded and personal inspiration are abundant throughout." —C.S.

"...the book is simply remarkable, to say nothing of the journey you took to rid yourself of the most awful six letter word I know." —F.P.

" wishes with your fine book! I am sure it will be a most helpful resource for any people who are experiencing cancer and having to go through a similar course of treatment. You are generous to share your life's experience with others." —D.D.
