Description


An accessible and humane handbook for cancer patients and their loved ones.
 
Every three minutes, someone is diagnosed with cancer. Despite this staggering statistic, advances in screening and treatment mean that there are now hundreds of thousands of people living with, and well past, a cancer diagnosis. What’s often overlooked, however, is that even successful medical treatments frequently fail to fully account for the disease’s emotional and psychological impact on patients and those close to them. Living with Cancer aims to address the information overload often described by those affected by cancer, providing a reliable and peer-reviewed resource written in accessible and jargon-free language. Featuring contributions from experts currently working at the forefront of cancer care and treatment, Living with Cancer is a compassionate handbook to help assist people with the terror of a diagnosis and eventually guide them toward justified hope.
