About Laughing at cancer

“Laughing at cancer” now in it’s second edition has featured on  Channel 7’s The Daily Edition,  Radio National Life Matters,  ABC 7743AWThe Huffington PostDaily Mail and Mamamia.

It all started on the eve of her 43rd birthday.

With two young boys, a new lecturer position and all the commitments of an active life, Ros Ben-Moshe had no plans for a tumour to take over her life. Yet after the news came on her 43rd birthday, medical appointments turned into hours of surgery, casual conversations disappeared, and even her children started asking questions.

In recovery rooms, as the clock slowly ticks, Ros Ben-Moshe starts writing. Through ups and downs, she tells it all, in an honest account of fighting the Big C, or should we say the small c?

Brimming with humour, insight and sensitivity, this series of journals, written at the time, explores how we talk about and view illness, and how changing your mindset can do wonders on the journey to health.

Through explanations of mindful healing techniques and the power of laughter, Laughing at cancer will inspire you to take a deep breath and start laughing.

“Standing back from and seeing the funny side of life, even cancer, can be profoundly therapeutic. It is for this reason that I suspect this book will be as healing for those who read it as it was for Ros Ben-Moshe who wrote it. Read it, cry and laugh, and, having read it, live every day with greater wisdom, passion and intention.” – Assoc. Prof. Craig Hassed MBBS, FRACGP, Mindfulness Coordinator, Monash University, Author Mindfulness for Life

“Ros has bravely combined two human experiences that are usually on different ends of the spectrum we call life. And braver still, decided to share her very personal experiences so others can benefit from her insights. If you or your loved one is facing cancer, and you have an inkling that laughter, mindfulness, relaxation or even a smile could somehow help, this is the book for you.” – Shamash Alidina, Author of Mindfulness for Dummies 

“This is a supremely captivating, inspiring, and penetrating book. Ros Ben Moshe explores the panoply of emotions that accompany a diagnosis of cancer, its treatment, and rehabilitation. The writing is exquisite, the story is powerful, and the message is compelling. This is more than a book about cancer. It is about how human beings can cope with frailties through laughter and love. The book will enrich your life and help you set priorities. Read it and recommend it to friends and loved ones. They will thank you.” – Isaac Prilleltensky, author The Laughing Guide to Well-Being: Using Humor and Science to Become Happier and Healthier, Dean School of Education and Human Development and Vice Provost for Institutional Culture, University of Miami.
