“Brought to you by health magazine Prevention, this book features an abundance of wisdom interwoven with easy-to-understand medical information and tips that jump off the pages.
Author Mary L. Gemignani, MD, PhD, a surgeon specializing in breast cancer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, holds readers’ hands from the moment of diagnosis, when, as she writes, ‘your doctor said, “I’m sorry to tell you that you have breast cancer.”
Gemignani’s step-by-step guide aims to get you through that fearful diagnosis to treatment plans with charts and illustrations that help make sense of the science.
The book includes complementary and alternative treatments and approaches, like acupuncture and healing touch, that can help relieve symptoms and ease stress; important questions to ask your healthcare team as you work together to make a plan that’s right for you.
A nutrition guide features recipes and supplements for stimulating appetite, easing treatment side effects, promoting recovery and helping to prevent disease recurrence.” —THE NEW YORK POST
