Faith and Facts to Transform your Cancer JourneyBook - 2007
This book is a personal odyssey, an intimate doctor-patient communication, and a prescriptive guide for patients and their families. Dr. Healy shares the insights that transformed her own struggle with a deadly cancer more than seven years ago, affirming her identity as patient and doctor. Medical advances have brought us to a turning point in the war on cancer. This quiet revolution is curing a growing number of cancers and transforming many others from a death sentence to a chronic illness, one that calls for vigilance but not despair. Beginning with her own story, Dr. Healy interweaves it with a lucid narrative of what cancer is, how it works, and how we can defeat it. She explains how new approaches are radically altering diagnosis and treatment, and offers ways for patients and their families to access the information and support they need to secure the best care.--From publisher description.
