I am a member and active participant on the HealingWell/Prostate Cancer site, and I would like to reach-out to invite you to participate in the inaugural HW/PC Book Club.

This month (January) we will be reading the book Being Mortal. Medicine and What Matters in the End, by Atul Gawande, and next month (February) we will be discussing the book online.

I recommend this book to anyone who may be a caregiver for a spouse or close relative/parent who may be aging, or may die, or to anyone who may themselves eventually age or die. This book confronts issues of quality and quantity of life, and gives insight on how each unique case might be approached.

The online HW/PC Book Club is a new, novel idea…but it will succeed best if you and others participate. (This book is fairly new, but consider joining even if you have already read it.) This posting is just to stimulate your possible interest, and to describe your next steps in case you would liket to participate…

If you are interested, please go to THIS LINK (which will take you to a HW/PC thread) to read more details about the timeframe, the book and how to “sign-up” & participate.
