Michael Holtz

Author Michael Holtzabout this book: It's Not Harder Than Cancer is the story of the author's battle with stage-3b rectal cancer. He tells his story with unexpected rawness and humor that will make the reader cry one minute and be laughing the next. More than that, it's a guide to attaining the mindsets required to survive cancer, other serious illness or any difficult situation the reader may face. Michael Holtz talks about the importance of expressing gratitude in the face of great challenge, of the need to surround yourself with good and supportive people, and to plan for what life looks like on the other side of cancer or other difficult situation. Each chapter ends with a brief exercise to help the reader embrace the mindsets presented in the book. Readers will be encouraged to keep a gratitude journal, create a bucket list and more. The title, It's Not Harder Than Cancer, comes from Holtz's surgeon, who encouraged him after treatment to get active by running a marathon. He said "a marathon is hard, but it's not harder than cancer." As it turns out, very little in life is more difficult or fearful than hearing the words, "you have cancer." If you have cancer or other serious illness, or know someone who does, this is the book they need.
