Description

This will be an excellent resource for any patient with a new cancer diagnosis. Cancer is many different diseases and the initial journey is complicated. The Complete Cancer Organizer will help patients and family members get accurate information, and help them to proactively participate in their care. It’s a wonderful resource!

A diagnosis of cancer is an unwelcome invitation into a world where every decision is wrought with uncertainty. Not knowing which way to go, patients often search for knowledge only to find information that is scary at best and dangerous at worst. The Complete Cancer Organizer is a reliable source of information that is presented in a way that is straightforward and easy to understand.
—Christina Colvin, MSN, RN, AOCNS, Taussig Cancer Institute



The Complete Cancer Organizer
I would strongly encourage anyone facing cancer to read and utilize The Complete Cancer Organizer. This book not only arms patients with the essentials needed to understand, manage and organize information related to diagnosing and treating cancer, but it also addresses the human or emotional side of the cancer journey. The Complete Cancer Organizer chronologically describes what happens from the time a cancer diagnosis is suspected using language and terminology easy for the non-medical reader to understand. ... More than an informative read, The Complete Cancer Organizer serves as a tool for patients and families overwhelmed with the challenge of trying to sort out what everything means and how it applies to their care, including important questions to ask health care providers. ... Finally, I would also recommend this book for the novice oncology health care professional seeking to gain insight about the experience of patients and families impacted by cancer.
