Description

This full revised edition of What You Need to Know about Breast Cancer is an indispensable guide to a disease that continues to occur at an alarming rate. Each year, more than a quarter of a million women in North America learn that they have breast cancer. The good news is that survival rates are improving. Today, four out of five of those women are alive, five years after diagnosis.
What You Need to Know about Breast Cancer offers a unique look at the sometimes baffling world of diagnosis, treatment, and healing. Written by breast cancer survivor and activist Pat Kelly and medical oncologist Mark Levine, the book's honest, compassionate text combines practical medical information with first-hand experience and advice. Topics include:
-Who gets breast cancer
-The emotional side of cancer
-Finding out that you have breast cancer
-Treatment, side-effects and follow-up
-How to find information and get help
-Recurrence
What You Need to Know about Breast Cancer offers women a blueprint for taking an active part in understanding their breast cancer journey. It is essential reading, both for women with breast cancer and for those who care about them.
“Breast cancer books abound, but I would recommend two from the current crop, both of which have been revised from earlier versions: What You Need to Know About Breast Cancer: Diagnosis, Treatment and Beyond is written by Pat Kelly, a Canadian breast cancer survivor and activist, and oncologist Dr. Mark Levine. It aims to educate and support women during diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Kelly is an excelling resource on the subject; having had breast cancer herself in 1987, she also founded several Canadian grassroots breast cancer organizations.? “The Toronto Sun
