From body image issues to money troubles and health issues arising from the treatment itself—the cancer survivor's bible

Packed with useful information and advice, along with quotes and case studies that will help readers feel less isolated, this is a practical and highly accessible guide to life after cancer. More than one in three people will develop some kind of cancer in their lifetime, and more than half will survive for at least five years after diagnosis—a number that, thanks to screenings and new treatments, is set to increase dramatically in the future. This growing number of cancer survivors faces numerous physical, psychological, social, and spiritual issues including body image issues, money troubles, and relationship and work problems, not to mention numerous health issues arising from the cancer treatment. These issues last for the rest of the survivors' lives, and they can be devastatingly hard to handle. Throughout this helpful book, there are practical self-help tools and mini self-management guides that enable readers not just to "cope" but to live.
