What's more, the book contains a useful appendix containing a detailed listing of questions to ask your doctors at each critical phase, some tips doctors may forget to tell you, a checklist of legal and insurance documents, and a listing of organizations, websites, and resources available to help you get the support and information you need about your type of cancer and the treatments and clinical trials available to you. It also includes a patient's medical information workbook to help you record relevant information. The book is something you will want to bring with you so that you have important information at your finger tips.
