As anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer knows, surviving cancer is more than just killing cancer cells and getting through treatment. Patients must deal with the emotional, social, spiritual, and financial fallout of a cancer diagnosis. By helping survivors understand that they can't go back to where they were before cancer, Dr. Wendy Harpham liberates them to move forward to a different, "new normal." In a reader-friendly, question-and-answer format, Dr. Harpham (herself a cancer survivor) addresses a wide range of issues. Among them are understanding the medicine of reevaluation, follow-up, and prevention after treatment; dealing with the most common physical aftereffects of treatment; learning how to make decisions about work and school; relating to friends and family; helping children deal with parents' cancer; and coping with the practicalities of living wills and insurance.
Wendy Schlessel Harpham, is an internist in Dallas, Texas, where she lives with her husband and three children. She is the author of After Cancer: A Guide to Your New Life and Diagnosis Cancer: Your Guide Through the First Few Months.
