Pearls of wisdom balance hilarious fun in this shameless exploitation of the chemo lifestyle. Fran Di Giacomo shares the game plan she has used for survival, for quality of life and to maintain her career as a professional artist. I'd Rather Do Chemo is an amazing approach to living with the big C. The author writes from her experience of multiple surgeries and years of intermittent chemotherapy. In trying to come to terms with her perpetual state of illness she rebelled against the sappy, optimistic books on living with cancer. That was when she discovered that laughter is the very best medicine and decided to write this hilarious book.
