Through more than 50 chapters, cancer care specialists Ernest and Isadora Rosenbaum-along with nearly 80 other medical experts-answer every conceivable question concerning a cancer patient's physical, psychological, and spiritual needs.

The wide range of covered topics includes: " Understanding cancer and its treatments " Chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant side effects " Stress and cancer " The will to live " Cancer and spirituality " Sexuality " Nutritional considerations " Rehabilitation and fitnessWith this book, cancer patients and those who care for them can make informed decisions, face the disease with renewed courage, and care for both their well-being and their bodies.
