Thousands of members of MyLymphomaTeam connect with one another and read each other's stories to gain perspective and validation about living with cancer. Another way to discover how to live better with lymphoma is through books written by people who have this condition. We combed through member book recommendations and collected a list of the most popular.

1. Living with Lymphoma: A Patient's Guide by Elizabeth Adler
Neurobiologist Elizabeth Adler wrote this guide after she was diagnosed with NHL to make sure she got the best possible treatments for her condition. This guide goes through the basics of lymphoma science and helps people with lymphoma better understand medical literature.

2. ¡Cancerlandia!: A Memoir by Juan Alarado Valdivia
Diagnosed with NHL at just 30 years old, Juan is immediately thrown into Cancerlandia: the world of doctors' appointments, screenings, and treatments. However, what treatment overlooks is his binge-drinking, unhealthy relationships, and mental health. This memoir talks about how one of the hardest battles after a lymphoma diagnosis is the one against yourself.

3. The Cookie Cure: A Mother-Daughter Memoir of Cookies and Cancer by Susan Stachler with Laura Stachler
Anyone dealing with the cancer diagnosis of a loved one knows the toll it takes on a whole family. A perfect family faces a battle they had never expected when both a father and his 22-year-old daughter are diagnosed with NHL. With themes of human compassion, emotional strength, and random tragedy, this novel is a must-read.
