Roads to Meaning and Resilience with Cancer ~ by Morhaf Al Achkar, 2019, self-help, 214 pages

Here are forty stories of coping, finding meaning, and building resilience while living with incurable lung cancer.  They share their experiences, hopes, and strengths to find meaning.  How exactly do we find meaning?  How do people find strength?  And how do people develop resilience?  How do they keep going?  Morhaf Al Achkar obtained his Ph.D in education and is currently a practicing family physician at the University of Washington.  He was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Since then, his research has focused on the experiences of patients living with cancer.  The author interviewed 39 patients who live, like him, with advanced illness.  He explored how these patients find meaning, cope, and build resilience.  Learn coping strategies to build your individual resilience.
Being Authentic: A Memoir ~ by Morhaf Al Achkar, 2020, memoir, 174 pages

This is a memoir, so more about his life with cancer, I presume.  Both of these books are free for Kindle.  I don't remember getting them, but Amazon says I downloaded them in April 2021.  Hmm, I guess I'll take a look.
