Some 10,000,000 women have survived breast cancer world-wide. Yet many of them still do not feel well. Problems with pain, fatigue, memory, confusion, anxiety, depression and more continue to plague a high percentage of survivors long after treatment has ended. This book, written by a long-term double cancer survivor, provides authoritative information on the possible causes of these lasting effects of cancer treatment and offers a variety of suggestions on how to manage chemotherapy side effects. While the book is based in solid scientific information, the author uses a variety of lenses through which to see this problem, including myth, fairy tales, personal anecdotes and humor. Cancer: How to Make Survival Worth Living is an engaging, delightful book, as well as an educational tool for physicians and patients alike.

About the Author:

Patricia R Wheeler is a survivor of breast and ovarian cancer, undergoing chemotherapy for both. When health issues continued after her release from treatment, Ms. Wheeler became convinced they were related to her cancer treatment, and she began to find proof to support her theory. This book is the result of her work and her findings. With her Master's Degree in Interdisciplinary Consciousness Studies, which she brings to bear on her writing, Ms. Wheeler has taught Philosophy and Religious Studies to undergraduate college students for the past 20 years. This is Ms. Wheeler's first book, but it very likely will not be her last as she continues her work on the condition that plagues so many cancer survivors now that it has been officially recognized by the medical community.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A heartfelt, well-crafted handbook about the effects of cancer treatments. Numerous books address the subject of living with cancer, and some discuss the side effects of cancer treatments. Few, however, tackle the challenge of living with the long-term effects of cancer treatments. Wheeler, who survived both breast and ovarian cancers, has undergone surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. She was led to believe that the symptoms she sustained years after her treatment were possibly age-related, but her research suggested otherwise. Wheeler’s book is the result of her personal quest to learn about life after cancer treatment; it demonstrates both her determination to discover the truth and her desire to help other cancer survivors...Wheeler pinpoints a particular challenge, symptom or issue in each short chapter and writes about it with insight and compassion. Her revealing perspective as someone who has lived through many cancer treatments combines with her research-based advice and her philosophical bent to create a personal, moving and instructive book. On occasion, the author uses storytelling, references to mythological characters and excerpts from poems to add a literary flavor to her writing, lifting this manual above the ordinary. Readers who have gone through cancer treatments are sure to find solace in Wheeler’s words. Neither sugarcoated nor overly raw, a cathartic, spiritually uplifting book to help cancer survivors overcome the lasting effects of treatment and get on with their lives.
