Cancer affects more than one in three of us. Until recently, the emphasis has been on battling cancer physically. Today, there is increasing recognition of the emotional aspect of having cancer, and survivorship and its issues are hot topics. This book tackles a sensitive subject in an upfront and practical way that acknowledges the uncomfortable and painful emotions associated with cancer. Topics include: the emotional impact of cancer; coping with distressing thoughts and feelings; changing unhelpful behaviours and learning to relax; family and couple relationships; coping with advanced and terminal illness 'This is a superb book that sets out to help patients and families cope with cancer and the increasingly complex treatment options available to them. It focuses on their emotional, spiritual and psychological needs as well as their physical needs. The three authors, who are all very experienced in this field, draw these threads together into a resource that is extremely helpful whether the reader is a patient, a carer or a health professional' Dr Paul Ellis, Consultant Medical Oncologist, Guy's Hospital, London Consultant Oncologist, the London Oncology Clinic 'The psychological and emotional impact of cancer are what really define the individual nature of the illness.
