Overcoming the Emotional Challenges of Lymphedema

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Overcoming is the first self-help book on the psychological aspects of lymphedema.

In her review that will appear in Lymph Link, the NLN newsletter, April 2006, Lori R. Volin OTR/L, CLT-LANA said:

"This book is a hands-on guide that is intended not just for patients who have lymphedema, but also for family and friends, parents who have children with lymphedema, medical professionals, and psychotherapists. This book is an excellent resource that will give us all tools we can use to bridge the gap between the physical and emotional- and truly treat the 'whole person.'"

Cancer Etiquette: What to Say, What to Do When Someone You Know or Love Has Cancer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

People often do not know what to say or what to do when it comes to cancer. Too often they make mistakes and hurt the very person they're trying to help. This book offers suggestions so that we can do and say the right thing when it comes to someone we care about who has cancer.

Dr. Bernie Siegel calls it "a very helpful guide." Library Journal calls Cancer Etiquette "long overdue" and recommends it for all libraries
