Description
The diagnosis of cancer was once equated with a death sentence, but advances in research, prevention methods, treatment, therapies, and holistic health strategies have greatly improved patients' survival rates. This book doesn't shy away from discussing the difficulty of a cancer diagnosis, the dread and fear surrounding the disease, or the challenges of treatment. An invaluable resource for anyone whose family or friends have been touched by the cancers, this book shows readers how to move forward from the diagnosis and take care of the important business of living, loving, and healing. Ushering forth the latest statistics and cutting-edge research and treatments, readers gain insight into improved diagnostic tools, treatment strategies and techniques including gene therapies, and survival rates. Includes "10 Great Questions to Ask Your Doctor" and "Myths and Facts about Cancer & its Treatment" sidebars and explanatory illustrations. Also includes psychologist Dr. Jan Hittleman's answers to actual teen questions.
