Just this past month an acquaintance of my husband's found out that his young child has cancer. Their whole world has stopped as they go through treatments and try to support a two-year-old who has no clue what's happening.

That's why when I read the new book, Perservance by Carolyn Rubenstein, I was amazed to see the other side of the story.

It is the stories of college students and graduates who had cancer as children. Their stories are honest, and at times heart wrenching, but there was one very surprising thread that emerged.

None of them regretted their experience. Each said that surviving cancer had given them a gift. It was motivation and inspiration for living a full life, for helping others, for going into the medical field or helping-people professions.

The author is a young woman who has dedicated her life to helping others. Her book is inspiring and would make a wonderful gift to someone whose child is a cancer survivor, or who has been diagnosed with cancer. This is a quick look at the book, why she wrote it, and about what it means to perservere.
