Product description


"..a psychologist and a consultant oncologist suggest how patients can learn to cope with a "cancer crisis"..chaos can be turned into control and opportunity." -- The Lancet

"..brings together the thoughts, ideas, hopes and experiences of doctors, patients and the families who care for those with cancer. Unbelievably optimistic." -- Woman magazine

"..uses the voices of patients in group show how the quality of life can be retained, and in some cases actually enhanced after cancer." -- Practical Health

"I would recommend it patients and their families struggling to gain some control over the chaos of cancer." -- Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine

"The narratives are compelling, and the book's informal and even chatty style draws in the reader." -- The Christian Century


Challenging Cancer shows people with cancer how they can stop feeling like victims and regain control of their lives. Cancer patients describe in their own words their strategies for coping with their situation, and demonstrate that it is possible to turn a crisis into an opportunity. The book centers around a weekend seminar and includes in-depth comment from those patients attending and their experiences and challenges from diagnosis to survival. There is a chapter on the story of Dr Vicky Clement-Jones, who having been diagnosed with ovarian cancer - found there was little information available about the practical aspects of living with cancer nor information about the disease from a patient's perspective. Together with Dr Maurice Slevin she founded CancerBACUP in 1985.
