Lavern L. Johnson wrote Notes for My Friends during her second, and final, bout with breast cancer. With it she leaves a testimony on how to not just live with cancer, but also how face the struggles with dignity and strength. Johnson describes in clear, non-sentimental terms how she faced chemotherapy and radiation, how she told family and friends, and how she prepared for her own death. The book is not a how-to guide about survival. It is a testament with integrity about how to face the disease. Johnson provides the valuable lessons she learned while trying to maintain her family and her job. Johnson died in 1995. Audible, and Johnson's husband Frank, recorded Notes for My Friends as a tribute to the author and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, 1999. Download and start listening now!
