With all the attention Hollywood is paying to cancer and humor these days, from movies like "50/50" to Showtime's "The Big C", laughing at cancer is cool. The time is right for the new book Welcome to the Cancer Club - Surviving, One Laugh at a Time.

PRLog - Oct. 18, 2011 - We need a name for those of us who have been diagnosed with cancer, an entirely different metaphor. Welcome to the Cancer Club, where despite the high dues and benefits of questionable value, membership is growing by leaps and bounds!

So begins the new book Welcome to the Cancer Club - Surviving, One Laugh at a Time. Myles Beskind is a two-time survivor of colon cancer whose sense of humor throughout his ordeal was a source of strength not only for himself, but also for those caring for him. He now shares  this incredible gift - the ability to find humor in some of the least funny times - with others who have cancer and with those who care for or care about them.

Readers have praised Welcome to the Cancer Club... on Amazon:

"Laughter is the best medicine.Who knew cancer could be so entertaining? In this light look at a difficult subject, Mr. Beskind give us a how to guide for caretakers. "

"Everything you need to know when you, or someone you care about, joins the Cancer Club"

"This book made me laugh and cry, in a good way.The author does a fantastic job of sorting through the difficulties of dealing with cancer (for both the patient and caregivers/loved ones). I highly recommend this book for anyone who's life has been touched by cancer, either directly or indirectly "

"The book will make you laugh out loud, but gives beneficial information throughout for caregivers and/or cancer patients themselves. I will keep extra copies on hand to give out."

Goodness knows you're going to have a lot of time on your hands if you or someone you love is facing cancer. Here's a good way to kill a couple hours waiting for that next procedure to begin or for a round of chemo to end. It's also a terrific read for those who've been through cancer and survived.

Welcome to the Cancer Club - Surviving, One Laugh at a Time is available on Amazon (paperback or Kindle)  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005FHOLA8   or on iTunes for iPad, iPhone, etc.   http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/welcome-to-cancer-club-su...
