From the reviews:
"This is a concise guide to screening, diagnosis, and treatment of the most common female cancers. … The book is intended for women diagnosed with female cancer and those who love and care for them. However, it also provides a concise resource for nursing professionals to reinforce important information regarding the disease processes of female cancers. … This book is a useful addition to the genre."(Theresa M. Bacon, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2009)
From the Back Cover
Women's Cancers: Pathway to Healing - A Patient’s Guide to Dealing Ovarian and Breast Cancer provides accurate information that combines both orthodox medical treatments, along with more complementary and esoteric therapies. Giving not only a valuable source of information and support to women with cancer, it also proves a useful resource for families and friends; helping them to understand the process of management and treatment. The book incorporates a useful and novel ‘4-cusp approach,’ which has proved very helpful to many women, both to themselves and also in allowing them to explain to their families where they are in the process. The ‘4-cusp approach’ is like a map for people with cancer.
Covering not only the medical, but also the emotional and psychological aspects of dealing with cancer, Pathways to Healing: A Patient’s Guide to Ovarian and Breast Cancer aims to help anyone struggling to come to terms with their own, or a loved one’s grief.
