No one plans on getting cancer, especially in their 30s, but for Nebraska businesswoman and songwriter Joy Huber, fate had other plans.
After her diagnosis, Huber began treatment and was determined not to let her spirit break, but chemotherapy left her feeling exhausted and sick.
“When you get the diagnosis, you’re terrified,” Huber said. She adds that cancer patients often don’t have the time or energy to find resources they need, not the least of which is encouragement to stay positive during treatment.
Huber looked for information that would leave her feeling hopeful instead of downtrodden, but she had no luck. So, she decided to her write own essential guide to living with cancer, aptly titled Cancer with Joy.
