Perspectives of a Flying Elephant is the chronicle of Teri Simon's first year of living with lung cancer. It is told via a series of blog posts that are frank, warm, humor-infused and, most of all, full of hope. The author's greatest wish is that readers who are struggling with illness or any other sort of "junk" will find something here to make their journeys a little easier, a little lighter, a little smarter, and a little more peaceful. 75% of all proceeds from sales of the book benefit Gilda's Club Nashville, LUNGevity, and The National Lung Cancer Partnership.
