“Gina M. Shaw’s new book is a welcome addition to my cancer book library. ...’Be My Baby’ is a forty-seven page chapter on cancer and adoption--one of the most in-depth sources I’ve read on the subject. Like the rest of her book, it is laden with straight-up, indispensable information for both men and women facing cancer and planning a family. ...A writer after my own heart, Gina gives readers a serious education on the legal, financial, medical, and administrative side of family planning. ...Whether you are recently diagnosed, a childhood cancer survivor, or just out of treatment, Having Children After Cancer is the family planning go-to-book.”

As treatments improve, more and more survivors are thinking about having families, and this book fills the information gap between what they’re told and what they need to know. If you've been touched by cancer as a patient, caregiver, or loved one, this book is for you.”
