Book Description

The Breast Cancer Survivorship Handbook addresses the next challenge for a breast cancer patient -- managing her survivorship. Just like a breast cancer diagnosis, survivorship brings its own set of challenges and adaptations. Survivorship also requires managing psychological and social issues along with physical changes and follow-up care.

This book empowers a patient to thrive by explaining lingering breast cancer treatment side effects and how to manage them. The book addresses the seldom-discussed issues of sexuality and the management of lingering depression and anxiety and, most importantly, what to do about them. Throughout the book are quotes from patients, inspirational thoughts to encourage and "how to" tips. It is about triumphant survivorship and the challenge of no longer focusing on cancer, but focusing on the gift of life after cancer.
