Product description

The book "Faces of Courage and Hope" introduces the faces and cancer journeys of 16 patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML). Men and women of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds, each share their unique experience in coping with life-altering circumstances and how they refocused their lives. 16 patients from 15 countries tell their story, e.g. where they turned for support since their cancer diagnosis, how they have faced living with the disease, and the way their personal and professional lives have changed since then are the subject of these inspiring stories told through photographs and interviews. Two patients affected by chronic myeloid leukaemia conceived of "Faces of Courage and Hope" as a way to support and encourage people as they adjust to the new reality of living with CML. Photographer Bert Spangemacher and patient advocate Jan Geissler know firsthand how disorienting a CML diagnosis can be and what strength there is to draw from sharing in each other's experiences. The encouraging stories and uplifting portraits in "Faces of Courage" and Hope provide support and inspiration for living a full life with cancer. The sale of this book funds the work of the CML Advocates Network (, a network of leukemia patient organisations in more than 60 countries on all continents.
