Praise for It’s Good to be Here

“David Giuliano has written a beautiful book about his pilgrimage with cancer.  It is perceptive, inspirational, funny, spiritual, loving, human, generous and thought provoking. It will join Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal as a book I read with my medical students.” – Dr. Andreas Laupacis, palliative care physician, Professor, Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto, Editor-in-Chief, Healthy Debate (www.healthydebate.ca)

“With humor, wit, insight and sheer honesty, David gives us a deeply personal window into the everyday dramas of living with cancer. His spiritual reflections from ‘the other side of the gurney’ is a must read for anyone who works in healthcare.”- Dr. Seema Marwaha, internal medicine physician and Freelance Health Journalist.

“David Giuliano has given us a beautiful and valuable relief map for a difficult journey. This work is a reflection on his experience with cancer, but it offers much more. It is a deeply personal offering of Giuliano’s wisdom and humanity, and maps a creative spiritual route to hope  in difficult situations, including but going beyond cancer. It holds treasures for all those interested in discovering a more profound and sensitive path to healing. He has gifted us with a vulnerable, honest, and sensitive view of the deserts, the mountain tops and the valleys of his journey which will help immeasurably in our own encounters with personal health challenges, or in caring for those faced with great trials.” – Peter Newbery CM,OBC,MDiv,MD,CCFP,FCFP, Past President, College of Family Physicians of Canada and CEO [retired] United Church Health Services.
