Summary
  • "Lively and empathetic, The New Cancer Survivors will appeal to persons with cancer - who, thanks to modern medical science, are "hanging in there with illnesses that once evoked only submission or surrender"--As well as to their families, friends, and caregivers. Throughout, the author shines a bright light on the cancer experience, providing good reason to be hopeful as well as insight into how to respond when things don't go so well
  • Because she has suffered recurrences of cancer, she can compare treatment in the seventies (week-long hospital stays, for example, and extensive surgery and chemotherapy) with treatment in the nineties ("drive-through" precision surgery, genetic testing, the integration of some "complementary" therapies into mainstream medicine) and weigh the differences. The New Cancer Survivors digs deep for the truth and serves it up with humor and attitude - offering a wealth of information, comfort, and inspiration."--Jacket
