about

Encouraging progress has been made in the medical field to improve one’s state of health. Magazines, newspapers and the Internet contain articles to excite their readers with promising new discoveries and cures. With all that genius being tapped, an absolute cure for the common cold, HIV Aids and most types of cancer is yet to be discovered. The “Big C”; Cancer still strikes fear into the heart. It has found its ominous way into virtually everyone’s life, through either a loved one, friend, family member or by a personal encounter. Although No More Pain centres on the lesser-known Mesothelioma, it can be compared with stories of other forms of cancer.

No more Pain, is Rita’s story of her family’s journey with Vito, her Italian immigrant husband, through the months of his illness. It is an inspirational narrative richly interspersed with light-hearted diversions, poems, verses and advice. The Foreword, touching on the delicate subject of euthanasia, hints at Rita’s approach to this final phase of life with Vito, and her encouragement to her family and friends to walk the road with him.

Of added interest is a man’s view of his family’s experience with cancer. His wife Anne continued to live a full life for almost thirty years after a double mastectomy. As is the norm, one’s children leave home when adults for greener pastures as did most of theirs – to another province and country – but when illness again gripped Anne, distance did not prevent their participation in her brave battle. Her husband Malcolm has some pertinent questions for the reader to ponder upon.

A twist of fate allowed the author to include a dear friend’s personal encounter with Mesothelioma. It presents a touching finale to No More Pain .

This book is of general interest and many will find courage and inspiration in facing cancer and terminal illness, or will simply feel all the richer for having read No More pain.

A comment made by G.J Smit MD on reviewing No More Pain:
