About the Book

Smiles from the Clinic: A humorous look at cancer


This is a cartoon book meant for cancer patients, their friends and families, health care professionals and anyone else who has been touched by cancer. It shows that humor is all around us, even with a diagnosis of cancer.


We use humor and smiles to deal with stress in our daily lives, and I believe that these approaches (where appropriate) should be used when dealing with cancer patients as well. All the stories shown in the book are based on my real life experiences…..(Dr.) Rajiv Samant
