"Over 140 Things You Need to Know about Your Autologous Bone Marrow or Stem Cell Transplant"

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Mark Patton, "The World's Most Transplanted Person", has written this book to help anyone who is going to have or is considering a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Mark has had five transplants over the past 14 years to treat his multiple myeloma.

There are now millions of transplant candidates in the U.S. Sadly, there are only around 50,000 of these procedures done each year. "Over 140 Things" shows patients how to find out if they are transplant candidates. It demystifies these procedures and lets patients look at transplants in a clear, objective manner. And, it explains how patients can take advantage of the enormous amount of resources available to facilitate their treatment and recovery.

Web site
Description: 

With the passing of my wife (profile: JoanIRW), I finally took it upon myself to start a bulletin board system specifically for Angiosarcoma fighters, doctors, researchers, fund raisers and all the people supporting them.

For Doctors and Researchers: There is a section for only YOU to discuss various treatments and findings between each other; Hopefully this will be a boon to us all as it will help minimize "noise" between these much needed individuals.

Please help me make my promise to Joan a reality: "We will beat this for someone else... My Word."

Cancerboy

Type: 
Book
Description: 

"Cancerboy" by Matthew Cummings is a story of courage, determination and hope. The book not only discusses the author's journey through his treatment of Hodgkin's Disease, but also allows him to tell his story of how a freak accident at the age of 11 left him disfigured but did not discourage him. Personal journal entries as well as his poetry help tell his story.

His journal entries show the struggles that chemotherapy patients face on a daily basis, the very things that healthy individuals take for granted. It was quite an eye opening look into a cancer patient's point of view.

His use of humor will make you laugh and cry as you read about the interesting life he has lead. As well as how his love of cycling helped him get through some of the most difficult times of his life.

As a practicing oncology nurse, I found the book to be an enlightening glimpse at the challenges that my patients face that I may not always be aware of. I like to believe that it has made me a better nurse for reading this book. "Cancerboy" is a definite worthwhile read not just for cancer survivors and patients in treatment but also for caregives and healthcare professionals who care for these amazingly courageous individuals every single day.
