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.
