Common Heroes: Facing
a Life Threatening Illness
By Eric Blau, M.D.  

Thirty Eight Profiles with Portraits

What does it feel like to see your life within the framework of a life-threatening illness? How do people cope? This book offers intimate stories from individuals who may be facing their own deaths in the near future. They share their personal experiences, their concerns, fears, anger, insights, and even humor when death touches their lives. From teenager to octogenarian, the people profiled in Common Heroes face cancer, AIDS, cystic fibrosis, and Lou Gehrig’s disease. Their personal stories are filled with honesty and courage, offering insight for everyone into the final stage of life, dying.

Endorsed by the National Hospice Organization.
