Overview

A diagnosis of cancer can forever change the way individuals see themselves and can disrupt any feelings of comfort and certainty about their lives and futures. Tests and treatments become the patient's new focus. As a patient "rings the bell" to mark the end of treatment, the question "Now what?" often looms large. The many years of survivorship post-cancer can be fraught with challenges, some of which are conquered and others that continue to be a source of worry for the survivor and his or her family.

In her latest work, After You Ring the Bell … 10 Challenges for the Cancer Survivor, Dr. Anne Katz explores the most common issues that confront people following cancer diagnosis and treatment. Featuring real-world vignettes, the book guides readers through the cancer journey after active treatment ends, giving clarity and understanding to what many survivors encounter along the way.

Dr. Katz draws upon her experience as a cancer nurse and patient educator as well as the growing body of research literature and current practice in survivorship issues to empower survivors and their loved ones. This book is a must-have for any survivor embarking on life after treatment.
