Sex and Cancer 

By SAKETH GUNTUPALLI, M.D., FACS, FACOG, AND MARYANN KARINCH

What is the impact of gynecological or reproductive cancers on a woman’s intimate relationships? The sensitive and oft-neglected subject of sexual intimacy receives the spotlight treatment in "Sex and Cancer: Intimacy, Romance, and Love After Diagnosis and Treatment."

Many more women are surviving gynecologic cancers than ever before. This book helps readers mitigate outcomes and overcome challenges of sexual dysfunction after a cancer diagnosis; reassess the priorities in an intimate relationship to support her struggle, healing and libido; and learn to interact with the professionals tasked with saving lives and enhancing those areas affected by cancer diagnosis and treatment. Written by a survivor of endometrial cancer and her gynecological oncologist, the book features personal stories from survivors that offer insight, comfort and suggestions for addressing questions about intimacy and sexual function that are often left unexpressed.

Mustaches for Maddie


CHAD MORRIS AND SHELLEY BROWN

This young adult book, based on a true story, tells the tale of a 12-yearold girl named Maddie, who has a quirky sense of humor and loves making her classmates laugh by slapping on fake mustaches. When Maddie starts tripping as she walks and her hand starts curling up at her side, her mother takes her to the doctor, who confirms Maddie has a brain tumor. In an instant, her world is turned upside down. With scary medical tests and surgery ahead of her, as well as typical sixth-grade problems, Maddie uses her friendliness, positive attitude, imagination and her fake mustaches to battle her challenges. She even gets an unexpected surprise when she receives hundreds of photos from friends, family members, and even complete strangers wearing fake mustaches to cheer her on. Sensitively told, Mustaches for Maddie highlights the power of humor, hope and love to strengthen the spirit and help people cope with the trials that cancer brings.
