Knowledge and information provide the greatest tools-and greatest comforts-for anyone fighting cancer or helping a family member or friend who is. Now AMP bolsters that strength-giving arsenal with Everyone's Guide to Cancer Supportive Care.
Through more than 50 chapters, cancer care specialists Ernest and Isadora Rosenbaum-along with nearly 80 other medical experts-answer every conceivable question concerning a cancer patient's physical, psychological, and spiritual needs. This extremely effective format first appeared as Supportive Cancer Care (Sourcebooks 2001), but we've completely revised and updated the entire book to reflect the latest care advances and techniques.
The wide range of covered topics includes:
" Understanding cancer and its treatments
" Chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant side effects
" Stress and cancer
" The will to live
" Cancer and spirituality
" Nutritional considerations
" Rehabilitation and fitness
With this book, cancer patients and those who care for them can make informed decisions, face the disease with renewed courage, and care for both their well-being and their bodies. The Rosenbaums provide an incredible source of information and hope in the face of this frightening illness.
