"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. For what is a brush with death, if not a deeper call to life?"

SAMPLES FROM THE AUDIOBOOK
This heartfelt memoir gave a glimpse of a family going through a life and death crisis and the long term effects that childhood cancer had on everyone. The author shares her story as a mom, researcher and daughter. Her insightful emotions tell a story of trying to control the uncontrollable and making decisions to navigate the best way at the Water's edge.
I loved this read.
As a nurse and psychologist I recommend this book for any healthcare worker who is working with families, trying to navigate the difficult journey of childhood cancer. Rarely does a book come along with an author with so many credentials in so many fields that help others find their way through such difficult times. Thank you Dr. Post-White!

This book is for anyone who has been touched, in some way, by cancer.
So whether you are an Oncology doctor or nurse, or you or someone in your family has cancer - Janice has opened her heart and shares the challenging and dimensional adventure she and her family went on when her 4 1/2 year old son, Brennan, was diagnosed with leukemia.
Janice offers, not only her over 30 years experience as an Oncology nurse, but also, shares the journey she faced from the perspective of the feelings of a mother, her gift of being able to step back, face her fears, let go, and most importantly, be present in the moment, the one and only moment. "Standing at Water's Edge" will prepare you for a dive into the oceanic. I see this book as a secret meditation story I call, "ZEN ONCOLOGY."

STANDING at WATER'S EDGE
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.
