A blueprint for overcoming challenges and celebrating each day with hope, acceptance and self-compassion from an inspirational and musical oncologist on the front lines of cancer treatment. 'Steven Eisenberg is a doctor who understands that health is just as much spiritual as physical.

This book puts music, laughter and heart front and centre, and the results are magical.'- Dr Mark Hyman, Director of the Cleveland Clinic for Functional Medicine and 10-time New York Times bestselling authorIn Dr Steven Eisenberg's oncology practice, the enemy is cancer, but it's also denial, anger and fear - draining emotions that can interfere with the effectiveness of treatment.

Every day, Dr Steven helps patients fight cancer using both time-tested conventional therapies and innovative medical technologies.

At the same time, he helps them overcome negative emotions by cultivating acceptance, love and self-compassion in a deeply personal way, through the music he plays and sings for and with them. How often do you hear someone say, 'I'm alive'? Dr Steven's patients say it to him all the time, in conversations, texts and e-mails.

Some of these patients are celebrating remissions or cures.

Some are getting sicker, with reservations about what tomorrow might bring.

But they've had a good day. They are all - we are all - truly and urgently alive.

Dr Steven's book invites us to celebrate this truth, even as it offers a compelling account of a doctor's experience on the front lines of care; a road map for bringing humanity back into traditional medical practice; and indelible proof that connection truly is the best medicine.
