No Quit In Me
Cancer patients and their care givers will find relatable companionship in John Kuby's tongue cancer memoir "No Quit in Me".
John's story reveals his gut-wrenching, heartbreaking, and yet somehow upliftingly wild ride with tongue cancer. He invites us into his life as he discovers, deals with, and overcomes this life-altering illness. We see his 'No Quit' attitude in action and feel everything he feels.
His willingness to be vulnerable as he openly describes both his physical and emotional experiences makes for compelling reading. As a patient, you will sense a camaraderie with John as you follow his journey and compare it with your own. As a caregiver, this first-hand account will help you see and support the ‘No Quit’ attitude in your loved one.
"No Quit in Me" captures the complex issues and many of the day to day challenges confronting patients, their families, friends, and particularly spouses."
This is a cathartic read. It will touch your heart and make you cry, but John’s lightness and humour will also make you smile and laugh. Most importantly, it will reveal and inspire the 'No Quitter' in you.
“WOW! No Quit in me captures exactly the thoughts, feelings and experiences I went through four years ago with the same cancer. I wish I could have read this to know what to expect. It would have been so helpful."
- Lee Sowell, Tongue Cancer Survivor
"No Quit in me" is an important resource for patients with newly diagnosed head and neck cancer. John's graphic story that details his cancer journey, pulling no punches as he describes the morbidity associated with chemotherapy and radiation.
Despite the hardships he endured, John's story is an inspiration. I continue to recommend it to my patients and I write the blog/web site address on everyone's new patient booklet. Many of them have told me they have found it engaging and encouraging. A must-read for those about to embark on their own cancer journey!"
