Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Mar 1, 2005 - Health & Fitness - 120 pages
Sharing Cancer is not a thick hard-to-read volume covering every type of cancer, all the treatment options, and projected outcomes. It is about the journey cancer patients and caregivers travel. Through the use of shared experiences, readers learn about battling cancer, facing death, being a caregiver, dealing with "helpful" friends and family, and being a survivor. Hints, charts, and lists are included which make the care of the patient easier, but Sharing Cancer also addresses the need to be prepared when cancer wins. Cancer doesn't just strike the patient; it invades everyone whose life is connected. This book helps guide you through that invasion.
