A diagnosis of cancer, life-changing for both patients and their loved ones, presents many questions: How will the disease and treatments affect you? What can you do to arm yourself for the battle? What roles do diet, stress, attitude and faith have on its progression? Perhaps most importantly: How do you and your loved ones maintain a sense of normalcy as you prepare for the unknown?

Drawing on his experiences as a leukemia survivor, and his legal experience, Howard Bressler breaks down the practical issues of dealing with cancer, empowering you and your loved ones to defeat whatever challenges you may encounter on the journey ahead.

Howard Bressler has been married to his wife, Ceci, for twenty-two years. They have two daughters and live on Long Island, New York. Howard has been practicing law in New York City for more than twenty years, and has extensive experience in toxic tort and chemical exposure cases. Part of that work has involved investigating the science behind diseases, including cancer, and working with expert scientific witnesses in order to make complicated issues regarding disease causation and progression understandable to lay-people.

In August 2000, Howard was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia. He underwent high-dose chemotherapy and participated in a clinical trial using arsenic trioxide to treat his cancer. In The Layman's Guide To Surviving Cancer, he puts his analytical skills, perspectives and personal and professional experience to work in crafting a roadmap for others to follow as they navigate the road to cancer survivorship.
