In 1982, Dr. Robert Patenaude was diagnosed with leukemia. Surviving Leukemia is the moving, first-hand account of his experience. From the first shock of hearing the diagnosis, through the anguish, hospitalization, chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant, Robert Patenaude gives a frank description of his experiences and shows the incredible survival instinct that helped him beat the disease. As an expert, both physician and patient, he answers all the questions asked by sufferers on symptoms, phases, treatments and research in an accessible and empathetic way,. Surviving Leukemia is illustrated with numerous tables, and a glossary of almost 300 medical terms. The preface is written by Dr. E. Donald Thomas, 1990 Nobel Prize winner in medicine for his work on bone marrow transplants. Surviving Leukemia is a unique and exceptional book designed specifically for people with blood diseases and those close to them.
