A History of Cancer and its Treatment.
An excellent resource for understanding our disease and how the current treatments came into being. Well written and easy to understand.
A wonderful journey into life after death and past life experiences.
This doctor is a leading expert in some of the more difficult thyroid cancers but also has findings in regards to Papillary thyroid cancer. Stating that RAI doses are NOT high enough initially and what this is doing is helping the cancer to become "immune." Thinking of it like someone taking too many antibiotics which ultimately results in higher tolerant diseases.
He argues against the concept that there is a lifetime limit of RAI and has given doses as high as 600-900 for people with lung mets like myself. He says it's important to find someone who will perform I-131 dosimetry which is a method used to find out what the highest dose an individual can tolerate without harming their bone marrow.
He is no longer taking new patients and I'm currently looking into other doctors who believe this same principle.

A wonderful book that empowers women to rediscover their dreams, especially the BIG ones from childhood that sit forgotten in the corner today. The book is an excellent resource, especially during challenging times.
A scholarly history of breast cancer, from ancient Egypt all the way to the present time.
While I was in treatment, I kept wondering what women had to go through BEFORE there were lumpectomies, or chemo, or estrogen blockers, so I found this book really fascinating....I'm a big history wonk....:-)
A lot of the same ideas about food as Anti-Cancer, but with recipes and practical tips for how to incorporate foods into your diet. I thought the practical aspect was an area where Anticancer was lacking, so this makes a good companion to it.
The one and only book my oncologist has ever recommended to me.
Author is a rehabilitation physician and breast cancer survivor -- talks more about physical than emotional recovery, so makes nice companion book to After Breast Cancer.
The one book I would buy, if I could, for every woman finishing treatment. The author is an oncology social worker and two-time breast cancer survivor. I started it about a month before finishing treatment, and carried it around with me like Linus with his blankie.
No one tells you how difficult it's going to be, emotionally and physically, when you finish active treatment -- this book really helped.
