About the Book
A cancer diagnosis can be terrifying, and the first thing a patient wants to know is: How am I going to survive this? Written by a radiation oncologist and cancer researcher, Taking Charge of Cancer offers an insider's guide to help readers understand cancer treatment options, choose the very best medical team, and be their own advocate. With this compassionate yet pragmatic guide, cancer patients will be better prepared to navigate the reality of their difficult diagnosis with knowledge and hope.
