Overview

In recent years, modern medical science has made tremendous strides in developing effective treatments for most cancers.

"...takes patients and families through every step: diagnosis, choosing the right doctor, developing personal support systems, enhancing quality of life throughout the treatment process, and understanding the mind-body link."
