Navigating Breast Cancer: A Guide for the Newly Diagnosed
By Lillie D. Shockney
Shockney (breast cancer and nursing, Johns Hopkins U.) provides information to breast cancer patients and their families about each step of treatment so they can make informed decisions about their care. She goes over the decision-making process, the features of a breast center, initial consultations, communicating the diagnosis to others, surgery and sexual intimacy, therapy after surgery, changes in daily routines, targeted therapy, metastatic disease, financial issues, and living a healthier lifestyle as a survivor. Online and organizational resources are given, but there is no bibliography.
