Abstract
This classic book introduced the author's seminal "stages of dying" or "stages of grief" model which is still widely quoted. According to the model, there are five stages that a dying person goes through when they are told that they have a terminal illness. The five stages go in progression through denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. This model has been widely adopted by other authors and applied to many other situations where someone suffers a loss or change in social identity.

Abstract
What if you could use cancer to evolve more fully into love? David Maginley has been there --- four times. His cancer led to a near-death experience and a career helping thousands face this disease. Through profound storytelling, David brings you to the core of the cancer journey to discover the hero within. You will learn how to :
-- Turn the mind into an ally as you grapple with uncertainty.
-- Explore spirituality through your love rather than your belief.
-- Not only go through cancer, but grow through cancer. - Cover
