2.0 out of 5 stars Not too impressed:( May 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read only half the book and was very uninterested. The whole frist part is just letters she received that are light-hearted but not funny. (I am a cancer patient myself) I have read funnier, more up-lifting books. Barbara Johnson has a great cancer book that I loved and laughed so many times out loud. I left this book at the cancer center for someone else to hopefully find hope in.

5.0 out of 5 stars A uniquely inspiring person and story Feb. 10 2004
Format:Paperback
I've had the extraordinary privilege to meet the author and read her books. I am not a cancer patient, but I know an extraordinary person when I meet one because it rarely happens. Anyone-sufferer or not-will be deeply inspired by Christine's story, her spirit, her will, and her example. She can change your life. And while that is occuring, she makes sure that you, as she urges everyone daily, "don't forget to laugh."

5.0 out of 5 stars What a book! May 8 2002
Format:Paperback
"Cancer Has Its Privileges" is one of the funniest and most inspiring books ever written about a disease half of us will end up with --- and one quarter of us will end up dying from. Christine Clifford's keen wit and unique insights --- and, most of all, her humorous personal experiences --- helps to turn a tough pill to swallow into a spoonful of sugar. Christine is America's version of a modern day Mary Poppins....they even look alike! You'll be glad Christine landed on your front doorstep and popped into your life, especially if you or someone you love is battling cancer. If that's the case, then reading Christine's book is not only just the right medicine, it's a real privilege, too!

5.0 out of 5 stars All cancer patients should have this book April 11 2007
By Merry Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was given to me by a friend and I recommend it to everyone I know who has cancer. Although I would have preferred not to have such privileges, it is very true that there are benefits to being a cancer patient. This book takes a light look at some experiences to which we can relate, and laughter is extremely important.Cancer Has Its Privileges: Stories of Hope and Laughter
