The first goal of this book is to provide the patient with accurate information. The second goal is to show how a combination of "orthodox medicine" and complementary therapies can help people through their cancer diagnosis, treatment and follow up. Early chapters apply to all women diagnosed with cancer, followed by chapters for each specific site of disease. Then follow chapters on chemotherapy, radiotherapy, pain management, complementary therapies and spiritual approaches. The book incorporates a novel "4 cusp" approach, which enables women to explain to their families where they are in the process. 11 Tables, black and white; 47 Illustrations, black and white; XVI, 138 p. 47 illus.
