Cancer hits hard at any age, but it is especially challenging for teens who must battle the disease while negotiating the tricky terrain of adolescence. This book explores the range of challenges the disease imposes on both teens who have cancer and those who have friends or family members with the disease. From diagnosis to treatment and survival, Denise Thornton pays special attention to how cancer can affect relationships and impact school life. Living with Cancer explores the toll the disease can take on self-image but also discusses how teens facing cancer can achieve a sense of balance and control. Each chapter takes advantage of expert knowledge and new information, and the book also features many narratives by teens whose lives have been changed by cancer. This book is immensely useful for teens who are facing the disease, as well as for friends and family members who want to understand and support them. Book jacket.
