At Last, a Fun-filled Trip with Cancer in Ritch Gaiti's New Toxic Journey: "F*ck You Cancer ... and the Cell You Rode in On"

Share Article

A totally honest, hilarious story about the dreaded prognosis of cancer. For anyone who has taken the journey is about to take or anyone who would rather laugh than worry.

Extremely funny and sarcastic in all the right places.

Ritch Gaiti documents his recent journey with the dreaded disease with the same humor he has put in his previous comedies, "Tweet" and "The Jewolic." As before, the writing is snarky and based on reality. Gaiti finds a path to the light side of cancer's darkest moments. "Chemo is like stubbing your toe, except it is your brain."

His pervasive optimism and recollection of the journey from day one, makes it an enjoyable and educational ride. He pokes fun at even his most anxious decisions.

“Think of it this way,” my Thoracic Surgeon explained. “The right lung is divided into three sections, called lobes. Each is about the size of a folded up slice of pizza.”
He saw the curious look on my face.
“Regular, not Sicilian,” he clarified. “It’s very hard to fold Sicilian slices.”
I nodded; clearly he had been trained well.

This uplifting journey is touching, poignant, relevant, and funny as hell - whether you are interested in cancer or just looking to be entertained.

"F*ck You Cancer ... and the cell you rode in on" is available in ebook (ASIN B00SU4OM84) and paperback (ISBN 978-0692375648) on Amazon (
