I Have Cancer. Now What?

“You have cancer.” For your patients, those three simple words bring about fear, anxiety, dread, and despair. The diagnosis is a frightening moment, but those words are not without hope. According to a report from the American Cancer Society, survivorship rates are increasing, reflecting progress in both diagnosis and treatment. In fact, in 2012, 13.7 million Americans with a history of cancer were estimated to be living, and that statistic is certain to grow in the coming years. I Have Cancer. Now What? will help your patients through your cancer experience, providing information and resources to help guide them through their diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. It will also help them keep track of their appointments, important phone numbers, medications, and symptoms. This book is available for bulk purchase.
