The Cancer That Died of Laughter
“During our lifetime, we all come accros challenges and crises. The question is how each of us decides to deal with them. I made the choice to face every morning with humor as the option for a better and more balanced life.”
Eyal Eltawil was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer at the age of 31, with metastases in his body and only 5% chance of recovery. Eyal, who had been used to laughing all his life and to dealing with every crisis with the aid of humor and laughter, decided to treat the biggest challenge in his life that way too, and kill the cancer with laughter, come what may. Three years after his full recovery, he was told there was a fair chance the cancer had recurred. Despite the harsh news, and while waiting anxiously for the lab results, he decided to laugh again and even relate his experience in a book.
The Cancer That Died of Laughter tells of how he coped with his double dilemma – on one hand with his cancer from the past, and on the other hand, the threat hanging over his future. In the book, Eyal laughs about everything: the medical system, his friends, “medicinal” marijuana, the sperm bank, the side effects of the treatments, and more.
“This book is a blessing to all people facing any sort of crisis, and more so if it is a medical challenge. It shows how each and every one of us can deal with them, without becoming a victim of the situation, but by choosing to experience its comic and optimistic side. That alone will most certainly assist recovery. Reading it is a must for everyone.”
Lenny Ravich, Director of the Gestalt Institute in Israel and author of the best-seller Everlasting Optimism.
Eyal Eltawil, 39 years old, actor, stand-up comedian and script-writer, acted and wrote scripts for stage and TV shows. After his recovery, he developed the sensitive, yet comic show, The Cancer That Died of Laughter, describing the journey of his recovery, and now works with and coaches lecturers, and performs nationwide.
In this rare and authentically funny book, Lenny Ravich emphatically underlines his passion for optimism as a way of life that promises better health, success in all areas of our lives, and for relationships that work. By drawing on this personal 81 year journey, Lenny keeps us in stitches as he allows us to experience how his responses to life’s “slings and arrows” have helped him reduce stress, anxiety, fear, and anger only to come out on the other end smiling, healthy and gracious. Lenny wrote this book to support all who are going through rough patches and offers the hope that we will be stronger, and happier.
