A young man battles Hodgkin's disease and survives--with more than a little help from his Mom--in this wry and uplifting memoir about life, love, and beating the odds.When Dan Shapiro's decidely anti-drug mom put aside her convictions and grew marijuana in her backyard garden (behind a discrete screen of sunflowers), he learned that in the face of a crisis we all have the opportunity to decide what is most important to us. In this hilarious, high-spirited, sometimes harrowing memoir, Shapiro invites us into his battle with cancer, his romance with an oncology nurse, his journey through graduate school, and his most important life lessons. He tells his story with wit and grace and indomitable spirit, showing us that only when the rhythm of life is stirred violently are able to discover its full beauty.
A must read for nurses and doctors in the Oncology field! This will help us to help our patients have a little more control over what happens in their 'everyday life' as a patient. One needs to keep one's identity and not just become a room number or a diagnosis. We need to respect the patient's need for privacy and not overstep the boundaries. Dan Shapiro's experience as an oncology patient, not once, twice, but three times is amazing. His sense of humor spills over the pages of the book. One laughs and cries as one reads his story of his battles against and triumph over Hodgkins Lymphoma.

I attended the 2010 APHON conference in Minneapolis in October where Dan was the final speaker. He used excerpts out of this book for his talk - we laughed and cried - there was not a dry eye in the audience at times. I had to get this book after hearing him - he was so alive and energetic!

If you know someone that is or has suffered through cancer treatment, you owe it to yourself to read this well-written first-hand autobographical portrayal of Dan's personal story. Even if you don't know someone that has gone through the experience, this book is a must read.
At times I laughed out loud at Dan's Woody Allen-like wit, other times I found myself in a dazed stupor wondering how anyone could go through what he went through. His characterizations are heart-warming, his attention to detail is splendid, I am amazed at how vividly he was able to tell his story.
Mom's Marijuana is a fast read with many short chapters (similar to the many Chicken Soup books). However, all of these short chapters weave an intricate trail in chronological order (for the most part) from Dan's breif discussions of his youth through the finer details of cancer treatment.
This book educated and inspired me. It also raised my understanding of a terrible disease to new heights. Do yourself a favor, stop reading this review and just buy the darned book. You will not regret it. You da money man, Dan.
This is one of my favorite books to give to my friends who are facing a cancer diagnosis and radiation or chemo. This gives them a lighter hearted look at another person's cancer experiences - absolutely useful to have something to lift your spirits and pass the time in the cancer center waiting rooms! I was lucky enough to hear Dan Shapiro speak at a cancer meeting some years back - he was as awesome and entertaining as his writing.
I've seen Dan speak live twice, he has the timing and humor of a stage comedian and the sorrow of someone who has been weathered by many a storm. However, he tells his story with hope. And laughter.
As a cancer survivor who knows Dan and knows that Dan turns out okay, I can say, this is an excellent read. If you're someone who is currently going through treatment or newly diagnosed, you may get a little scared about your own illness while reading, everyone has their own threshold. If you are one who would be bothered by Dan's story, you may want to wait until you're through with treatment, but this is definitely worth reading!
We saw Dan speak at a Leukemia/Multiple Myeloma seminar. He was great! The book is written in a down to earth manner using humor to provide so many practical ideas and comfort. His mom by the way should get the award for the best ever!
The memorable title of this book has nothing at all to do with the focus of the story. It'll make you laugh out loud, it'll make you cry, and it speaks volumes to the human condition, the medical system, and what it is to fight through a most serious battle. I found a way to relate to his story on more than one level, perhaps that's why it struck such a chord. The hardest, rawest battles, are combated with humor. A valuable lesson.
Very well-written cancer memoir
As someone who has battled cancer four times I totally could relate to everything the author wrote. I think this book should become required reading for all Oncologiy and Hemotology physicians. Loved the book.
