Standing at Water’s Edge: A Cancer Nurse, Her Four-year-old Son and the Shifting Tides of Leukemia


  • By Janice Post-White
  • Narrated by Melanie Carey
  • Audiobook • 9 hrs 16 min

Janice Post-White was an oncology nurse who thought she knew what life with cancer was about–until her four-year-old son was diagnosed with leukemia. While he drew pictures to process his emotions, she buried her feelings and threw herself into managing a dual role as a medical professional and mother. Her memoir shares her son’s perspective as a young cancer patient and teen survivor and explores her own personal and professional insights on survivorship, resilience, healing, and what facing death can teach us about living.

Whether you are a parent struggling to come to terms with a child’s illness, a medical professional looking to gain a deeper understanding of the human condition, or a cancer survivor seeking hope and inspiration, Janice’s story is sure to touch your heart and leave you feeling inspired.

“What a beautiful, poetic and honest account of a parent’s greatest fear―facing the loss of a child to a serious illness. This book will move you, enlighten you, and ultimately inspire you.
