"Betsy de Parry eloquently and humorously depicts all sides of the cancer experience and its impact on various parts of life in this book.  Her point of view is inspiring and empowering for all people dealing with cancer, including family, friends and health professionals."
BONNIE DOCKHAM, LMSW, Program Director, 
Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor 

""Adventures in Cancer Land is an extraordinary read. Although Betsy's personal struggle was with lymphoma, the lessons she derives from her illness are universal. The book is not merely one patient's chronicle of an illness. It is an extremely well written, witty and at times funny account of the struggle to survive the diagnosis, treatment and life challenges of cancer. I would highly recommend it to patients, oncologists and caregivers. 
- DR. RICHARD BROWN, Founder of Cancer News On The Net

"Betsy de Parry has produced something rare: a compelling and well-written cancer adventure story that is also a charming and practical guide for patients facing the disease.  This is useful reading for any patient and family coping with all cancers, and absolutely essential for anyone with lymphoma."
