Editorial Review(s) 

Being Single, with Cancer contains the wisdom Tracy Maxwell has acquired the hard way: by experiencing cancer... Her book provides a roadmap through the cancer experience and contains the information which can help you to heal your life while in the process of curing your disease.” —Bernie Siegel, MD, author of Faith, Hope & Healing and The Art of Healing

"If you are single and have cancer, this book will be your new best friend. Tracy Maxwell provides spot-on support and excellent resources because she has been there herself." —Kelly Turner, PhD, New York Times bestselling author of Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds

“I have known Tracy for more than a decade, and watched her overcome many challenges, including cancer. It is through our own struggles that we learn to seek the growth and development that is possible when we embrace, rather than resist whatever comes our way. Being Single, with Cancer takes the reader on a spiritual journey that solidifies for them that they are not alone, they have options, they are lovable and loved, and further that they are powerful, inspirational and divine in their own right.” —Christine Hassler, author of Expectation Hangover, Life Coach, and Speaker

“After hearing the three scariest words in the English language — you have cancer — on three separate occasions in college, I learned how difficult it can be for young adults to navigate cancer which is what led me to found the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, and what leads me to endorse Being Single, with Cancer. Like the Foundation, this book provides resources, support, guidance, and most of all, hope for those who may feel alone in facing cancer.” —Doug Ulman, President and CEO, LIVESTRONG Foundation

Being Single, with Cancer takes an honest, inspirational, and even humorous, look at love and life during and after cancer. If you are a patient, survivor, care-giver, doctor or nurse, this book is a smart in-depth look at an important issue that will help millions.” —Ethan Zohn, 2x Hodgkin Lymphoma Survivor, Co-founder of Grassroot Soccer, and Winner of CBS Survivor Africa

"This book will make a huge difference to you when facing a cancer diagnosis. Tracy’s experience led to creating more freedom, a deeper connection to spirit and an abiding joy in her own life, and she tells you how to do the same. This book has life lessons for everyone whether single or not, survivor or not. I urge you to read the book and add it to your library." —Patrick Snow, internationally bestselling author of Creating Your Own Destiny and The Affluent Entrepreneur

“What inspires me the most about Tracy’s journey is her clear approach to growth and empowerment. She knows herself deeply, and she remains open to gaining more knowledge through inquiry, curiosity and living life fully. She is a wise woman who has chosen to expand, share, teach and empower others by listening to her own call to help other single survivors find the light within them. Consider yourself blessed to have picked up this book.” —Wendy De Rosa, Founder, School of Intuitive Studies, and author of Energy Healing Through the Chakras: A Guide to Self-Healing

"This book takes the reader on a journey of a true survivor who took control of her own healing through diet, uncovering destructive patterns in her emotions, setting boundaries, and making her own health and well-being a priority. Tracy describes cancer as the best thing that ever happened to her, and her book shows you how you can feel the same way about whatever challenges you may face in life. This book will help you know for sure that no matter what, you are never alone and you are always loved." —Nicole Gabriel, author of Finding Your Inner Truth

“I so wish I’d had this book when I was ‘single with cancer.’ It is so needed. Tracy has filled a void and will give hope to so many facing cancer alone. And, what readers will find is that they are actually not alone. Being Single, with Cancer leaves no stone unturned.” —Tamika Felder Campbell, Founder, Tamika & Friends and Cervical Cancer Survivor

“Tracy is an incredibly special and unique human being. Her life perspective is nothing short of spectacular. If you want to learn how to overcome adversity with grace and admiration, read Tracy's book. She has guided me through some very difficult situations. Now I am confident that I can transform my own challenges into successes. I owe much of my success and strength to Tracy's friendship and coaching." —Marcia Donziger, Founder, MyLifeLine.Org, and Ovarian Cancer Survivor

“When I was diagnosed with cancer I was also single and quite frankly, it sucked. But, if given the choice today, I’d likely choose Tracy Maxwell’s healing advice over a boyfriend! Like a best friend, Tracy tells the truth and cuts to the core of what we really need to hear as single survivors empowered to heal our deepest wounds while we conquer cancer. There are no shortages of cancer patients in the world. But there are shortages of people who will talk about the root issues that contribute to a cancer diagnosis. In Being Single, with Cancer, Tracy Maxwell is a truth teller who challenges us to look inside instead of outside for the deeper, more permanent, healing solutions we seek.” —Emily Hine, Writer, Speaker, and Peace Officer, HolySit.com

“Tracy is a tireless advocate for single cancer survivors. Her life experience and research have led her down a path to healthy nutrition, exercise, holistic healthcare options and healing. As a result, Tracy is leading a very authentic and fulfilling life. She is passionate about helping others on their journey through cancer, and showing them the healthy and holistic options that are available to all of us.” —Susan Rafferty, Single Ovarian Cancer Survivor

Being Single, with Cancer is a powerful story of a cancer diagnosis unexpectedly turning out to be a blessing. Tracy's story resonates with anyone facing difficult circumstances yet determined to fight their way through with an open heart.” —Gina Marotta, Heart Healer and Truth Activator

Being Single, with Cancer is a powerful tool for single people facing cancer or other serious diseases. As a three-time cancer survivor and newlywed, I'm personally aware of the difficulties of being single with a history of cancer. As the co-facilitator of Healthy Young Attitude, a young adult cancer support group, I've heard many stories of patients and survivors navigating the relationship minefield while facing cancer. Tracy's frank discussions and exercises are also very helpful for the single (and not-so-single) guys out there, though we might not be comfortable admitting it.” —Jasan Zimmerman, Healthy Young Attitude Facilitator and Three-time Cancer Survivor

“When you’re facing a frightening new reality, you quickly discover how little you know about what’s ahead. That makes you feel small, dumb, unprepared, and terrified. Gaining that knowledge leads to confidence, which leads to realistic preparation, which leads to faith, which leads to empowerment. Tracy knows this journey all too well, and reading her book will move you closer to empowerment so that you can spend less time stumbling and more time recovering.” —T.J. Sullivan, Co-Founder and CEO, CAMPUSPEAK, and author of Motivating the Middle

“All people really want to know — especially those living with a disease — is that others have experienced something similar and come out stronger on the other side. Living with cancer is lonely for anyone; but dealing with cancer while single can be exponentially more difficult. Tracy shares her struggles with the reader and, in the process, empowers them keep pushing through...keep living, and even to see the blessings in their illness. It takes an amazing amount of vulnerability to share yourself like Tracy has, and she has done so for the benefit of others.” —Mike Dilbeck, Founder and Speaker, RESPONSE ABILITY: The Revolution for Courageous Leadership

Being Single, with Cancer gives voice to the unique stories and challenges faced by single individuals confronted with a life altering illness, while providing guidance in finding the support and strength needed to meet those challenges head-on. By the time you finish reading, you will realize you are stronger than you thought, and you are definitely not alone.” —Judy Davidson, RN

“None of us chose to get cancer, but we can choose to grow from it. And though the experience can sometimes feel like a battle, it can also be seen as a blessing. As a cancer survivor, I know personally of the challenges and too often loneliness that comes with a diagnosis. Being Single, with Cancer is a story of hope, found spirituality, compassion and the importance of friends and extended family in our lives. It is a story of a seeker on a quest to not only move beyond cancer but to also find one’s self. Single or married, if you have had a serious illness you will find yourself in this book.” —L. Darryl Armstrong, PhD, Cancer Survivor
