UPLIFT: SECRETS FROM THE SISTERHOOD OF BREAST CANCER SURVIVORS
Uplift bookNew York Times best selling author, Barbara Delinsky, herself a breast cancer survivor, saw the need for a book that treated breast cancer as a do-able experience -- and, indeed, the response to it has been remarkable. UPLIFT: Secrets from the Sisterhood of Breast Cancer Survivors is a handbook of practical tips and upbeat anecdotes for those with breast cancer. It contains useful woman-to-woman hints—things the doctor doesn't say—practical advice on topics ranging from what deodorant to use during radiation, to what minimizes nausea during chemo, to how to feel feminine and upbeat. This advice comes first-hand, in the words of 350+ breast cancer survivors, their sisters, children, parents, lovers, and friends.

FROM CANCER PATIENT TO CANCER SURVIVOR: LOST IN TRANSITION
In the United States, half of all men and one-third of all women will develop cancer in their lifetimes. Advances in the detection and treatment of cancer, combined with an aging population, mean greater numbers of cancer survivors in the near future.

Despite the increase in survivors, however, primary care physicians and other health care providers often are not extremely familiar with the consequences of cancer, and seldom receive explicit guidance from oncologists. Furthermore, the lack of clear evidence for what constitutes best practices in caring for patients with a history of cancer contributes to wide variation in care.  Link to this report on Amazon
