  Cancer does stink! , 01/26/2010
Reviewer: DR Sherry E Showalter
The Nose Saga is a funny but deadly serious account of one man's journey through a potentially deadly disease and its course of treatment. John weaves his humor and his journey of being alone through the process of losing his nose to Cancer and placing his faith in a team of brilliant physicians and surgeons while entrusting his faith to his companion wolf-dog Aurora. Many will find the story a bit frightening to be sure and not quite understand his journey of doing it "his way" but all will respect his humor and determination to "win his fight" against Cancer while maintaining his spirit. His ability to "mask" his emotional journey is done quite well during this saga, leaving the reader to never quite get beneath the comings and goings and doings of the author; we know he loves to play with his beloved and faithful wolf-dog, loves Jeapordy, loves Pepsi and fast food... but we never get beneath the surface... and he makes certain of that! But you can be sure he has also walked a journey of anticipatory and real issues of loss and grief along the way. Bes of all things to you John F Harnish ... and your wicked humor... thank you for allowing the author of Healing Heartaches to contribute to The Nose Saga, Cancer Stinks... Yes, Cancer does Stink. Continued energy being sent to you and Wolf Dog for your healing and great success of your Book!

  Give your nose some thought , 06/02/2010
Reviewer: Beth Mansbridge
When was the last time you gave your nose considerable thought? John Harnish was forced to do so. We are lucky he survived his fight against nose cancer because in his unique style of reporting, we are beside him through the ordeal as well as benefit when he shares his philosophy about different aspects of life. With his dog Aurora, John guides us along the rocky cancer path. With the help of friends and family, he stays positive—and even funny—in the worst of times. This is a book well worth reading.
