    Cancer is chilling, whether it happens to us, or to someone we love. Lots of us want to put our fingers in our
    ears and sing, "La-la-la, I can't hear you," and learn as little as possible about this disease. Until the day comes
    when we HAVE to learn about it. Then there is so much information and it is all confusing as hell and terrifying.

    This incredibly informative book breaks it down into 16 chapters that are intuitive and helpful. It can be read in
    order, or we can skip directly to: the chapter on Understanding Blood Tests, what the different kinds of blood
    cells are, and what lab results mean. Or, perhaps, the chapters on Preventing Nausea, or Coping with Other
    Digestion Changes. There are sections on relaxation, on Mind and Body working together, on Fertility, and
    Sexuality, and on Life After Cancer.

    The language at the beginning of the chapters felt a little simplistic and condescending, along the lines of:
    "A beach is a place where the water washes in from the ocean." But pretty soon, I was in over my head, and
    VERY grateful that this book translated the medical jargon into easy-to-understand language and clear,
    uncomplicated explanations. 

    If you have cancer, or love someone who does, I highly recommend this book as a primer (get the paperback
    rather than e-version, so it can be more easily passed around the family), for understanding all the things you
    need to know. I felt SO much more empowered and knowledgeable after reading it.
