Approximately 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer each year, according to the National Cancer Institute. With so many new cases detected annually, a large portion of the population is either living with the disease or supporting a loved one through treatment and healing. With 56 affiliates and over 100 satellite locations across the world, the Cancer Support Community is one of the largest organizations worldwide providing support and resources for the millions affected by cancer.
In Reclaiming Your Life After Diagnosis (BenBella Books, June 2012), Cancer Support Community president and CEO, Kim Thiboldeaux and vice president Mitch Golant, PhD, share the most important information and resources to help you or someone you love through the challenging journey of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Offering practical, research-based tips for managing the side effects of cancer treatment and guidance on handling complex emotional issues, Thiboldeaux and Golant accurately and compassionately address the physical, emotional, social, and practical needs of cancer patients and their support systems.
