Hundreds of thousands of people are cured of cancer every year, due in large part to chemotherapy treatment. Making the Chemotherapy Decision is a comprehensive sourcebook for people looking at chemotherapy treatment and their families.
Medical journalist David Drum demystifies chemotherapy treatment in a practical and supportive book that includes information on particular drug treatments, their side effects, and ways to deal with them. Stressing the connection between body and mind in the healing process, Drum dispels myths surrounding chemotherapy and presents clear, concise information on patients’ rights, pain control, nutrition, lifestyle changes, alternative treatments, financial issues and more.
Patients who actively participate in their treatment greatly improve their chances of survival and enhance their quality of life. Making the Chemotherapy Decision provides information and support to work with your medical doctors and caregivers on your recovery from cancer.
“David Drum has succeeded admirably in explaining cancer chemotherapy to the patient and his or her family and friends. Making the Chemotherapy Decision is well-grounded scientifically, but carries explanations that are practical and easy to understand.”

“A powerhouse of help and encouragement for anyone who accepts cancer as a curable illness, not a death sentence.”
