HASH(0xa88b6e34) out of 5 stars Raw, intelligent, and real! March 14 2010
By Gerry Peak - Published on
Format: Paperback
Refreshingly honest. Painfully authentic. Raw, intelligent, and real. All of these words and more describe Cancer Journey: A Caregiver's View from the Passenger Seat. As a cancer survivor, I was blown away by the frank, direct, yet comforting journey that Siegfried recounts in this readable book. Rarely does one find a book that dares to tell the truth about the horrible waiting, fear, and grief of cancer while affirming faith in a sovereign, caring God. Remarkably, this book weaves together seemingly opposite realities of suffering and hope without resorting to religious platitudes and cliché. This book is for the forgotten victims of cancer--the spouses, the children, those who stand alongside the cancer patient throughout this devastating disease. If you know someone facing or battling a catastrophic illness, get Cancer Journey...but give the book to the caregiver, the one sitting in the passenger seat. When you don't know what to say, when you don't know what to do, GIVE THIS BOOK! The best I have read on the subject!

HASH(0xa88b6e88) out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING! March 15 2010
By Pat Thomas - Published on
Format: Paperback
Outstanding. Riveting. Excellent. Real.

There are really not enough adjectives to describe this book. The author has a unique style that captures your attention from the first page. Siegfried's honest, yet humorous, description of her husband's cancer journey is what keeps you reading. She does not try to gloss over the painful emotions she felt as the caregiver. Nor does she portray herself as a super-Christian who had it all together. Yet she artfully weaves her genuine faith in an ever-faithful God throughout the book, giving the reader hope in the midst of devastating circumstances.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is on this journey and most especially to their caregivers. In fact, I recommend it to anyone going on a painful journey of any kind...not just cancer. It would be appropriate for any type of caregiver for it is encouraging, uplifting and yet practical in application.

HASH(0xa88c02dc) out of 5 stars A "MUST READ" for All Clergy & All Households Facing Cancer! March 26 2010
By Harry L. Strong - Published on
Format: Paperback
Cynthia Siegfried's book, "Cancer Journey: A Caregiver's View from the Passenger Seat," should be in the library of every pastor and priest and in the library of every hospital! It is the testimony of a woman who has "walked the walk," having been the co-pilot for her husband who was confronted with an alarming cancer diagnosis. Those who are traveling the same treacherous Cancer Road, with all of its unexpected twists and turns, will identify with Cynthia's honesty and vulnerability, and they will be comforted and empowered through her humor and her faith. Readers will soon recognize that she and her husband, Jim, are traveling in a vehicle designed by a Christian manufacturer. She makes no apology for her particular faith perspective. But ANY readers, regardless of their chosen faith or their lack of faith, will benefit from this compelling account of a family sent on a detour by the road sign no one wants to read: "IT'S CANCER!" What did I appreciate the most? 'Glad you asked! At the end of each chapter, Cynthia offers a series of very practical "Road Survival Tips" for the next phase of the journey. They are inspired and wise directions suitable for all households! Do you need a "GPS" to help you find your way through this frightening fog? You'll find it in "Cancer Journey ..." by Cynthia Siegfried! Harry L. Strong, retired pastor, Presbyterian Church, USA

HASH(0xa88c069c) out of 5 stars Great Book May 13 2011
By Retired RN - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Read this book in one day. I have a son who has colon cancer and I found myself identifying with so much the author had to say. She hits the nail on the head, as far as all the feelings a care giver goes through. All the ups and downs and uncertainty. The quotes from the Bible give comfort. I finished the book and gave it to my daughter-in-law, who also has praise and say that my son read it too. He told me I guess I have to talk about my feelings a little more. I'm not the only one going through this disease. I learned that from your book. I would recommend this book to any caregiver.

HASH(0xa88c0648) out of 5 stars What every person dealing with cancer needs ! April 11 2013
By Jinnie Grigsby - Published on
Format: Paperback
A copy of this book was given to me by a dear friend as my husband was fighting pancreatic cancer ( no one wins this battle ) . It was as if I had a personal friend right next to me helping in a way only those that have walked this path truly understand . I sent my copy to my cousin as soon as I was done reading it ( 2-1/2 hours , I could not put it down ) as her husband is fighting cancer also . In my husbands memory I have ordered several copies to be given out to caregivers at the hospital that he was treated at .
Cynthia , a heart felt thank you , you might have saved my life . If not my life then my days and most of my nights, helped me to be a better wife and care giver and you made a very difficult journey much easier to bear. God bless you as you have blessed others. Jinnie Grigsby
