Cancer is a general term that applies to more than 100 different types of cancer. Each type of cancer has a special kind of treatment, unique problems, and general outlook. Cancer is largely a disease that affects older adults, though children can get a few types of cancer as well, including leukemia, a cancer of the blood; bone cancer; and brain tumors.
Living with Cancer is a clear, concise guide to the nature of this disease and its consequences on day-to-day life. Filled with pertinent facts, this accessible book uses case studies and dramatized, real-life examples to illustrate the impact of living with cancer. An appendix presents useful information such as various organizations, support groups, online resources, and further reading.
