Part inspirational cancer-survival story, part memoir-as-laugh-riot, “Cancer Schmancer” picks up where Fran’s last book, “Enter Whining”, left off. After the publication of that book, Fran’s life began a steady downward spiral. She separated from her long and complicated relationship, her TV series started to slip in the ratings and her beloved dog’s health was in major decline. Then came the mysterious symptoms no doctor could adequately explain. With her trademark humour, Fran tells of her indefatigable search for answers and the cancer diagnosis that she ultimately beat. But not before a goldmine of humorous insights were revealed to her about what really matters most in life.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shauna | 2/15/2014

    " Women going through cancer can be comforted, entertained and enlightened by this book. Fran D.'s patient-to-patient, woman-to-woman tone is so conversational that one feels relieved to know that someone else really does know and truly care what it is like to have to face cancer and triumph past it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christa | 2/13/2014

    " This was an easy, relatively light read especially given the subject matter. The message is a good one: people should be aggressive in pursuing their own health. Several people mentioned that the writing was poor, but I was engaged enough in the story to not notice any deficiencies in the writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorinda | 2/12/2014

    " Everyone should learn the symptoms for uterine cancer because you just might have this much trouble getting a diagnosis. it is also insightful to travel with The Nanny through her emotional journey to health. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josie | 2/5/2014

    " I don't normally read autobiographies but I loved The Nanny so much I thought I'd give this a try. What an excellent read. Fran Drescher is just as clever and funny in this book as she was in The Nanny. But we also get to see a whole other side of her. The side that not that many others knew about...including moi! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 2/3/2014

    " I'm a sucker for celebrity biographies and autobiographies. This book follows Fran Drescher's battle with uterine cancer. The book is written in a light-heartened style and is both funny and touching. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/3/2014

    " I saw her speak so thought I should read her book. She was seen by 9 doctors and misdiagnosed by 8. She is a survivor of uterine cancer. She stresses finding your voice and being your own best health advocate. I like her humor and take on life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonja | 2/2/2014

    " This book is definately better then the first one (Enter Whinning) - it is a book that is inspiring and funny. Fran Drescher gives some great advice, shares much of her personal emotional experience dealing with cancer and states strongly to not always settle on the first opinion of somebody - to trust in yourself "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/26/2014

    " Loved Fran's outlook as she went through this trial. She is such a strong and positive woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 1/23/2014

    " I never liked the Nanny. I never knew I liked Fran Drescher. I do know I like her now. This book brings humor and inspiration to a very serious subject, and raises awareness. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn Cooper | 1/19/2014

    " Easy read. Good reminder to keep up on your personal health and to second guess doctors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Attanas | 1/12/2014

    " This is a good memoir about the nightmarish trials and tribulations of having cancer (and being misdiagosed!). A good lesson and warning to anyone about the importance of knowing your body and of getting second opinions, even from supposidly "reputable" doctors! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lana N. | 12/24/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 7/10/2011

    " The real "Nanny" well written Fran had her struggles. If you like her on TV, you will love her in print. As a cancer survivor this book was inspirational. Very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ilze | 7/5/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol | 6/7/2011

    " I enjoyed reading this book, plus as a fellow cancer survivor, it hit home for me. Mixed in with the humor, there is information in this book that all women should read. Listen to your body and keep going to doctors until you find out what is wrong. Thank you Fran for sharing your story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lace | 5/23/2011

    " a no-nonsense, get-it-all-out-there documentary firsthand from the highly-recognizable voice of the nanny herself...felt like i was reading a letter she wrote directly to me and found it very funny the carelessness of language. love this lady, glad she made it out alive to tell her story! "

    " Mr: -
    Mrs: OK, her comes my outing: I am a big Frannie the Nanny fan! So, this review might be a bit biased, however...: I really liked this book! I read it when I had medical issues as well, and her stories and her witty Jewish humor made things a little more bearable again for me. "
