For many people, receiving a cancer diagnosis puts them into "information-seeking" mode. Books, websites, doctors, nurses, dietitians, and more all become important ways to get the information you need to cope with cancer.
You’ll want to learn about treatment options, what to expect as you go through treatment, how to cope with treatment side effects, and how to live well after treatment ends.
If you are a "book person," you won’t want to miss our reviews of over a dozen cancer- and health-related books. From dealing with "chemo-brain" to what to eat, we have you covered.
