    A 'Bible' for Anyone Affected by Cancer

    This book is one of the most comprehensive and easy to understand guides I have ever read. My father has cancer and this has been my go-to resource for everything from treatment options to nutrition, emotional well-being and all of the other concerns relation to cancer treatment. This is clearly written for the patient in very easy to understand language that does not everwhelm you. It also helps to prepare you for doctors visits by giving you questions that will help get the most out of each visit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
