The Cancer Poetry Project
Poems by Cancer Patients and Those Who Love Them

A single poem—heart-rending, fearful, raging, beautiful, grotesque, even hilarious—lets us know we're not alone in dealing with cancer. This was the idea that launched The Cancer Poetry Project and drew more than 1,200 submissions from published poets, first-time poets and everyone in between. The award-winning result is a national anthology of 140 poems, plus the story and people behind each.
Retail Price: $18.95

Praise for The Cancer Poetry Project

“Every stage of the cancer journey is expressed and described in vivid and unforgettable language in The Cancer Poetry Project. You cannot fail but to be inspired.”
— Sharon Bray, Ed.D., author of When Words Heal: Writing Through Cancer

“To say this 250-page book is moving would be a trivialization. … The range of perspectives and insights is breathtaking.”
—Budgeteer News

“Readers will recognize themselves, find validation for their innermost feelings and derive comfort from knowing that they are not alone on the road they are traveling.”
—Geri Giebel Chavis, The National Association for Poetry Therapy

“In a world where vast forests have been turned to wood pulp to publish variations on psychic Chicken Soup, [Miller's] goal isn't to find poems that are relentlessly upbeat but simply honest.”
—Minneapolis Star Tribune
