Christine Clifford is a breast cancer survivor who found that humor helped her cope with the diagnosis of cancer. She was able to identify humorous situations during her treatments which included surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. She subsequently founded The Cancer Club to produce and distribute humorous and helpful products for people with cancer. Christine currently serves as president of The Cancer Club.

Not now...I?m having a no hair day is the story of Christine?s diagnosis and treatment. There are humorous anecdotes and illustrations throughout her book. She shows how humor and support from family and friends go a long way in helping patients cope with cancer. Any cancer patient can relate to many of the authors' experiences.

It is rare to find a book that conveys humor while discussing cancer. Not now...I?m having a no hair day is uplifting and heartwarming. Hopefully this book will help patients look at their diagnosis in a different light and identify the humor their own situations. It is highly recommended by OncoLink for any patient with a diagnosis of cancer.
