    Help after a scary diagnosis

    Chemotherapy and Radiation for Dummies was the first resource I turned to after getting my cancer diagnosis, and it helped me quell the fear and begin to understand what was ahead of me. The book is well-organized so that you can pick and choose the chapters you need when you need them. As a breast cancer survivor, Patricia Corrigan writes with authority, compassion, and humor. The book told me what I needed to know about the chemo drugs I¿d be taking and their side effects along with very practical information such as how to take care of my teeth during treatment. I continue to refer to it when a new issue arises. I¿ve recommended it to other patients and they¿ve found it helpful, too.

    Outstanding resource

    I bought this book for a close friend who is undergoing chemotherapy treatments. She found it to be highly informative, realistic, and extremely well written. She said she couldn't put it down. I would highly recommend this book for anyone either undergoing chemotherapy treatment, or for friends and loved ones of those who are. Well worth the investment and probably one of the best books written on the subject.

    Knowledge is Power! Great advice for the newly diagnosed

    First you scream...and then you start looking for control. At least that was my experience. As I read 'Chemotherapy & Radiation for Dummies' I kept wishing it had been around eight years ago during my own cancer journey. For those newly diagnosed, I highly recommend adding this insightful, practical resourse to your nightstand. Doctors Lyss, Fagundes and author/survivor Patricia Corrigan have provided current, relevant answers to some of your most immediate questions and concerns. And, they've done it in a caring, conversational tone that validates what you are most likely feeling. They've taken two mystifying subjects and made them understandable for the average patient. Speaking authoritatively and candidly about treatment options, side-effects and how to cope, they provide practical advice for becoming your own health advocate and lessons in working effectively with your medical team. Let these experts help you win back some control and give you hope. You CAN regain a measure of control over your yourself a favor and read this book.
