About a year ago, my friend Arlene from The Journey blog told me of the book called; Cancer is a Word, Not a Sentence by Dr Robert Buckman. I really liked this book, and you might like it too.
It’s a practical guide written for folks that have just been diagnosed with cancer. The goal is to help those people and their families to make sense of what happens next and to plan a course of action. Dr. Buckman describes everything that comes after the diagnosis, including tests, the stages of the disease, treatment options and follow-up.
A bit about the author… Dr. Buckman is practicing medical oncology at the Princess Margaret Hospital (Toronto). He is a Professor at the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto and also holds an adjunct professorship at the M.D. Anderson Cancer.
