About this title

Synopsis:

For less than the cost of most doctor visit co-pays, Dr. Pinzone provides a behind-the-scenes look at medicine as well as strategies designed to help you become a more effective and powerful patient. During his medical training, Dr. Pinzone evaluated a new patient, a middle-aged woman. He asked her about any past medical problems. She responded, “I have fireballs in my Eucharist.” After asking a few more questions, he realized that what she meant to say was: “I have fibroids in my uterus.” This encounter touched him deeply. This woman’s “fireballs” helped him realize that patient education is critical, particularly when it comes to the often-confusing and complex topic of cancer and its therapy. Educating yourself about your disease, anticipating the mental and physical challenges that accompany illness, learning to better navigate the medical system, and leveraging skill sets that you have developed in other areas of your life just might save your life. As an added bonus, a portion of the proceeds of the sale of this book will go to support cancer research, care and advocacy.
