Inspired by the author's experience with breast cancer Not Now...I'm Having a No Hair Day! is the first book of its kind to offer hope to cancer victims, their families and friends through the healing power of humor.

In her straightforward style, first-time author Christine Clifford, CSP paints a realistic picture of what it's like discover cancer, undergo surgery, and endure radiation and chemotherapy treatments. But unlike most cancer patients, she manages to find humor in herself and her predicament. Throughout the book, her moments of fear, frustration, uncertainty, love and joy are captured by the gentle wit of illustrator Jack Lindstrom in 60 cartoons that reveal the vulnerability and strength of the human soul. Together, Clifford and Lindstrom show readers how the power of laughter and positive thinking go a long way toward promoting recovery and growth.

'....No Hair Day! is a wonderful book.
Humor-that's the most important ingredient for facing the enemy-cancer. I had breast cancer in 1979-surgery, chemotherapy for a year. I'm sure it was laughter from God that saved me.'
- Julie Harris

'I've always felt that humor is even better than chicken soup for the healing process. My friend Christine Clifford's book handles grave subject matter with sensitivity and warmth.'
- Jim Davis

'You are doing great work. I am inspired by your message.'
