Breast Cancer Answers: Practical Tips and Personal Advice from a Survivor by Judy King

Judy King has walked the path, seen the benefits, and dealt with the limits of the medical establishment's approach to breast cancer. Now she has written the book she wishes she had, one that will help the newly diagnosed understand the ins and outs of a wide variety of procedures and stages of the journey, as well as where to look for help from within and outside traditional medicine. Breast Cancer Answers is not a panacea, but it will certainly ease the burden of the hundreds of thousands who will, unfortunately, join her journey.Many breast cancer books and Websites offer limited help, but none compiles the wisdom of so many cancer survivors and experts into an easy-to-search reference book like Breast Cancer Answers. This book tells you how to deal with work concerns, insurance and relational issues, special nutritional and emotional needs, and side effects of treatments. Like a trusted confidant, it addresses topics you may be embarrassed to discuss with your doctor or even your best friend, such as depression and changes in sexuality. Three years of research, interviews with experts, a caring support group, conversations with dozens of breast cancer patients, and Judy's own experience provide the abundant help found in Breast Cancer Answers.
