Review book: Hug everyone you know

Review: Hug everyone you know: a year of community, courage and cancer Antoinette Martin thought she was healthy and strong, until her Stage 1 breast cancer diagnosis. Though tempted, she knew she could not hide in bed for months. She had a devoted husband, family and friends. To harness support without scaring herself or anyone else, she kept a diary and began to email those who loved her. Reading the responses became her calming strategy. With the help of her community, she found the courage within herself to face cancer with perseverance and humor.
