- About the Book
In All of Us Warriors, Rebecca Whitehead Munn paints a realistic picture of the impact cancer has on an individual’s life, and she attempts to demystify the experience by sharing heartfelt stories from twenty survivors and the loved ones of those that passed. They are mothers and fathers with seven types of cancers and all stages of the disease, as well as advice regarding how to approach someone you love living with cancer and tips and tricks for helping others feel joy in the midst of pain. This inspirational book provides a positive outlook of strength and perseverance through belief in a higher power, reinforcing the idea that the reader is stronger than cancer and not alone, and offering real strategies that cannot be found in online medical sites. Like a conversation with a new best friend (or twenty of them), All of Us Warriors is full of understanding, acceptance, and practical advice gained from personal experience.

This is a book that will pull you in and redirect your attention to what matters the most in life and living. The stories of the cancer patients, and their fellow brave warriors that stood by them through their tough journey, are truly remarkable. This book will leave an indelible mark on your soul. Apart from educating a reader on the intricate issues, it endears you to the real-life people on the pages, creating a relatable sense of connection with each and every unique story—as different as each one is.
All of Us Warriors displays a strength in people, family, friendship, community—togetherness, as a whole—and it is beautiful to see albeit its heartwrenching and sobering element.
A truly endearing and fantastic read!
