Bettye J. Wiley Hooks shares lessons of own battle with cancer

New self-help book ‘No! You Don’t Understand!: What It’s Like to Have Brain Cancer’ released

HILLSIDE, N.J. – Bettye J. Wiley Hooks echoes the lessons of her own battle with cancer in her debut book release featuring “No! You Don’t Understand!: What It’s Like to Have Brain Cancer” (published by Xlibris). Candid and enlightening, her story reminds readers how to properly treat people with the same debilitating disease.

 

“No! You Don’t Understand!: What It’s Like to Have Brain Cancer” is a book about Hooks’ healing journey and the lessons learned from a younger brother suffering from lung cancer when she was diagnosed with brain cancer long after he had passed away. It offers guidance to anyone currently experiencing the same disease with straightforward information and encouraging stories.

 

“Readers can identify with the topic. I have not seen any books like this one; I couldn’t find any when I needed help,” Hooks says.

 

Taken from her personal experience, the author reminds: “Do not to tell a cancer patient ‘I understand’ unless you have had cancer, because you really don’t.”
