About the Series:
Learning that you or someone you love has cancer is devastating, and feeling lost and powerless is a common immediate response.

Each book in this series is dedicated to a specific type of cancer. The information is there to help lighten your burden and to assist you in becoming an active participant in your care. Cancer rarely allows us to take a diversion from life, and offering guidance on how to continue to live life while working hard on getting well is part of the outcome we hope to help you achieve.

I was given this book to read and review after I was halfway through my treatment. After going through it, I found that it discussed a lot of the pre-testing that takes place. I also found out that some of the symptoms I had were very common, something I was going to talk with my doctor about. I had skated through the dark with my breast cancer and this book lit up a lot of things for me, I wished someone had given it to me when I was diagnosed. I highly recommend it! Don't go into treatment in the dark!
