After Breast Cancer: A Common-Sense Guide to Life After Treatment

Type: 
Book
Description: 

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.

Everyday Cancer, nobody told me it would be like this

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Cancer is a disease that will come after you, your family, your work, and every facet of your life. It attacks health, attitude, and confidence with an array of chemicals, tests, treatments, and paperwork. And many times it comes back again.

It's not trendy but it affects enough people to be a trend. This book is about a guy who gets the bucket of cancer dropped on his head from out of nowhere.

This story is from a quirky and personal perspective of how we (family and friends too) dealt with the diagnosis, treatment, and the afterlife of Multiple Myloma.

When the doctor asked my wife if we could move up our daughter's wedding a couple of months we knew we had a problem here. We live and describe all of it, as it affects all of us. We combine treatment, our business, our lives, and the countless incidents that are a part of this.

Sometimes I feel as if I was dreaming and remembering a dream, other times it was like watching someone else's life.

Whether dealing with a chiropractor who didn't believe in medical history or with a technician who was trying for an illness conversion as I lay on the table in pain, the events show what my days were like.

The time spent preparing for and doing the stem-cell harvest to the actual transplant and recovery were some serious physical and mental anguish, but it did not stop my wife and I from fending off an insurance person or a social worker or two when "the first rule was obey all rules".

I met inspirational people in the person of my first hospital roommate, my sister, and many other friends that have cancer. Talking to them and remembering times we had were an important foothold I had living
