Publisher Comments:

Dr. Julie Silver offers a holistic approach to healing after cancer treatment, one that uses clinical medicine as a springboard for describing a variety of approaches that can lead to better quality of life for cancer survivors. Silver, a cancer survivor herself and a physiatrist at Harvard University whose job as a doctor is to help people feel better, draws on her professional and personal experience to help other survivors feel more well, get stronger, and develop an emotional base to help them cope with their new status as cancer survivor. She includes the latest evidence about what people can do (including exercise and diet) to decrease the chances that the cancer will recur--something nearly every cancer survivor focuses on. Dr. Silver relates her own story in broad, touching strokes and interweaves the stories of other cancer survivors whose inspirational and validating narratives provide a backdrop for the practical advice forming the core of the book. From our readers' reports: Dr. Silver's book encompasses not just emotional and physical healing but spiritual as well. Her credentials as a young mother and cancer survivor, in addition to being a physiatrist with a specialization in rehab medicine, give her work validity..Very helpful, meaningful, and insightful for those who are journeying through cancer, and those who have recovered. Addresses important topics for the growing group of cancer survivors and provides them and their families with important information. The author's personal background as a specialist in Rehabilitation Medicine and as a cancer survivor gave her tremendous credibility as the author, and her voice in framing this text was comforting andinformative. An optimistic and appreciated guide for cancer survivors.

Synopsis:

At age 36, Julie Silver was enjoying an exciting career as a physician at the Harvard Medical School and a rewarding personal life as a mother, wife, and award-winning writer. But she had the sense that something was wrong. Two years and multiple doctors later, she was diagnosed with the breast cancer she had suspected all along and was catapulted into the role of cancer patient. <P>Like many cancer patients who experience serious side effects from treatment, Dr. Silver emerged from therapy feeling not better, but exhausted and physically devastated. As she worked to heal herself, she became determined to write a book to help others recover after cancer treatment. <P>Here Dr. Silver shares her own cancer journey and offers a step-by-step plan for physical healing, including exercise and diet recommendations and instructions for fighting fatigue, monitoring mood, and overcoming setbacks. Dr. Silver's advice comes from the heart — and from her experience as both a cancer survivor and a doctor who has spent her career helping people heal from serious illnesses and injuries. No matter where they are in their own journey with cancer, readers will find After Cancer Treatment a personal, practical, and powerful guide to recovery.
