According to the National Cancer Institute, there are an estimated 13.7 million living Americans who are cancer survivors. The institute expects that number to rise to almost 18 million over the next decade. The Institute of Medicine notes that patients diagnosed with cancer have an estimated 64% chance of surviving five years, up from 50% three decades ago. And most of them have lingering symptoms, both physical and emotional. The Cancer Survivor is a companion and guide for those millions of individuals who are finally done with treatments but are still on the journey to wholeness. Beth Leibson completed her chemotherapy and radiation in 2007. She had beat cancer, but was left with lingering memory issues, exhaustion, depression, pain, and the fear that at any point, the cancer could return. Here she tells the story of how she rebuilt her life, and shares advice from other experts, addressing the emotional, medical, and professional challenges of life after cancer. Here are the questions you’re afraid to ask (“When will my sex drive come back?”), the questions you hadn’t yet considered (“How do I reenter the work force after a ‘break’ of a year or more?”), and those you know you should be thinking about but haven’t had the energy for (“What supplements or alternative therapies should I be taking to regain my strength?”). Warm, honest, and full of sage advice, this is the book Leibson wishes she had had when the nightmare of cancer treatments drew to a close and the overwhelming reality of starting life over again began.

A critical resource for anyone with a cancer diagnosis. Written by a radiation oncologist and cancer researcher, Taking Charge of Cancer offers an insider’s guide to understanding and receiving the best treatment options, choosing the right medical team, and approaching this difficult time with knowledge and hope. Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be terrifying, and the first thing you probably want to know is: How am I going to survive this? Cancer care requires decisions from numerous professionals, delivering treatments that are potentially life-saving, but also potentially dangerous and life-threatening. The chances of cure and survival for any given patient depend on the expertise of the cancer team, and whether procedures are in place to ensure that cancer care is delivered properly. So, how can you make sure you choose the right treatment team and ensure the best chances of survival and long-term health after being diagnosed with cancer? Taking Charge of Cancer is a different type of book for cancer patients—one that goes beyond the cancer information that is currently available, allowing you to truly take control of your cancer treatment. You’ll learn how to obtain and understand medical records, and why these records are critical to your care. You’ll also find the tools you’ll need to determine if the recommendations made by doctors are in keeping with accepted treatment guidelines. You’ll discover how doctors use evidence to decide which treatments are best, as well as how doctors can become biased in their recommendations. And, most importantly, you’ll be able to evaluate whether surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy make the most sense in your specific case—and whether or not these serious treatments are being delivered effectively and safely according to the highest standards. Now that you’ve received a cancer diagnosis, it’s time to set a plan in motion for your recovery. This book will help you do just that—every step of the way.

"Why Is She Acting So Weird? A Guide to Cultivating Closeness When A Friend is In Crisis" sets out to address what happens to friendships when one friend faces a major life crisis like cancer, divorce or job loss. Are you at a loss for how to help your friend? Do you worry that you're going to say the wrong thing? If you've ever tried to help a friend cope with a difficult and painful time in her life, then this book is for you. "Why is She Acting So Weird?" fills in the gap of time between building friendships (ala Shasta Nelson) and ending friendships (ala Dr. Irene S. Levine). When Jenn McRobbie was diagnosed with breast cancer, she found that her friendships changed and morphed in ways that no one could have expected. To honor all of those relationships, Jenn has written this book for all friends; the book she wished she could have given her friends when she was diagnosed. She's walked the path of crisis with her friends and now offers you the valuable insight gained during that journey. "Why is She Acting So Weird?" gives friends ways to navigate the difficult terrain of a crisis. Inside you'll find topics ranging from developing a support system to what to say when you're at a loss for words. You'll learn practical skills about things like helping your friend build a communication plan and how to offer advice without overstepping your friend's boundaries. At the end of the book, you'll have a greater understanding of what your friend is going through and how you can help. *** ADVANCE PRAISE *** We've all been there--struggling with what to say, what to do and how to act when a friend, relative, coworker or fellow homeroom mom says she has cancer. Here, with unflinching honesty, McRobbie relives the pains, triumphs and, yes, awkwardness, of navigating her friendships while facing down cancer. "Why is She Acting So Weird?" was exactly what I was in the market for--packed with thoughtful, concrete guidance based on real experience. During a crisis, it takes a village. And sometimes that village could use instructions. "Why is She Acting So Weird?" is that instruction manual. -Sandra Sobieraj Westfall, "PEOPLE Magazine" correspondent. With wit, wisdom and a modern new voice, McRobbie deftly weaves a brave and heartfelt cancer memoir with a practical guide on the healing power of female friendship. - Jill Kargman, New York Times best-selling novelist and creator/writer/lead actress in Bravo's new scripted series, Odd Mom Out. As a physician, I strive to offer my patients more than just the technical aspects of surgery and disease management. I have tried to offer care to my patients that goes beyond the disease itself. Since reading "Why is She Acting So Weird?," I have changed how I view patients and value so much more the family and friend support system that is essential to healing. I have modified my approach and now encourage my patients to seek that community support. - Hernan I. Vargas, MD, Director of the Inova Breast Care Institute at Inova Fair Oaks Hospital Our tagline at the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults is "Cancer Changes Lives, So Do We." It is our life's work to create a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, as they fight cancer and embrace survivorship. "Why is She Acting So Weird?" is going to play an important role in that work. McRobbie has created an important tool for friends who are at a loss for how to help their friend cope with cancer diagnosis or other crisis. The practical guidance in this book will benefit friends and survivors alike. - Brock Yetso, President and CEO, and Brian Satola, COO and Senior Director of Awareness and Activation, Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults
