Inhaltsangabe: In 2014, an estimated 1.66 million people will receive a diagnosis of cancer. They will join a pool of 13.7 million Americans already living with a history of cancer. Almost 600,000 Americans will die from cancer. For some, cancer will be only a short divergence. For others, however, it will be a dramatic fork in the road. And for still others, the beginning of the end of the line. This book guides cancer patients along their journey where no one knows the duration or the destination. Divided into the three parts of being a cancer patient-the diagnosis, initial treatment, and on to survivorship-the book will help the newly diagnosed cancer patient navigate a complex health care system, make astute decisions at difficult junctures, and manage the emotional turbulence that can rock his or her world. Lastly, it shares the story of how the author and his wife, as well as other cancer patients, have confronted their disease.

Carlson, Professor Emeritus of Medicine, Stanford University Medical Center Chief Executive Officer, National Comprehensive Cancer Network People who are told they have cancer can feel swept into a dizzying landscape of doctors' appointments, diagnostic tests, procedures, and treatments, as well as seemingly irrational insurance requirements, forms, and bills.

Vose, M.D., M.B.A., Neumann M. and Mildred E. Harris Professor and chief of the section of hematology/oncology at University of Nebraska Medical Center I've spent a lot of time communicating with people who have just been diagnosed with cancer. Over nearly a decade working with the world first and leading cancer center, I thought long and hard about how to help people who have just received the shock of their lives make the best choices for themselves and the ones they love. I know how badly they need guidance from people they can trust. John and Lori Leifer are those people, and this book answers that need. Written by two deeply experienced experts in the clear and caring voice of a true friend, After You Hear It's Cancer is destined to be a classic. -- Mark DiMassimo, Founder and Chief, DiMassimo Goldstein
