    A must-read for anyone dealing with chronic illnes

    If there's anything "sick" people need, it's a great dose of hope and humor. That's exactly what Jarem Sawatsky delivers in Dancing with Elephants. It's a completely outside-of-the-box look at life with chronic or terminal illness, dealing with the body's declining abilities in humorous yet meaningful ways. I have spoken very highly of this book to my support group and hope to see this become THE book to read for everyone who deals with chronic/terminal illness, whether personally or from the outside.

    Good for all parts of lofe

    I received an ARC copy of this book. What follows is an honest review. The author has Huntington's disease. As the disease progresses in a human body the person loses control over their movements. Some have likened the lack of control to that of an elephant dancing, hence we have the name of the book. When faced with a disease like Huntington's of which there is no cure, one has to decide what they will do with their life and what remains. Many will try to fight it, some, like the author will embrace it. This does not mean they will not hold on to every bit of life they can, but that they will live a life where there will not be a lot of drama. Decisions will be made before they need to be, arrangements made that need to be done. That is the thrust of this book. One needs to get support not just for the person, but to their love ones as well. In this book, the author suggests making circles of people from all walks of life, that can treat each part of you, not just the medical ones the doctors can. It is a well written book. I would recommend it to any going through a terminal illness, of their own or a loved one. I also found many inspirational moments in the book as well. While I have cancer, it is a slow moving one so I do not have the same trauma that many do. Still I think many just going through life could gain from this as well.
