Your Cancer Road Map
Navigating Life With Resilience
No one should have to face cancer alone.
Each year, 1.8 million people are diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Upon learning this difficult news, individuals also have a minefield of complex information to navigate regarding treatment plans, insurance coverage, clinical trials, and more.
Your Cancer Road Map: Navigating Life with Resilience is a compassionate, comprehensive guide for cancer patients, their families, and caregivers, designed to take the guesswork out of these crucial decisions every step of the way.
For more than 35 years, the Cancer Support Community (CSC) has been a trusted resource, demystifying the emotional, physical, financial, and logistical challenges related to cancer. From CSC Executive Chair Kim Thiboldeaux, Your Cancer Road Map is a comprehensive guidebook, providing advice and comfort at every point on the cancer journey, from the moment of diagnosis to survivorship and beyond.
Your Cancer Road Map covers hard-to-talk-about topics such as treatment options, finances, how cancer can affect your fertility or sexuality, survivor care, hospice care, and end-of-life planning. In the CSC tradition, the book ensures that people impacted by cancer can live their lives to the fullest and enables them to gain a sense of control during what can be an overwhelming and chaotic time.
Now more than ever, patients need the tools to participate fully in their healthcare, and communicate their preferences and priorities to their healthcare team so that they can make the best decisions for themselves and their loved ones while living with the highest possible quality of life.
Filled with incredible personal stories from people who could be your friends or neighbors, as well as celebrities and influencers, plus workbook pages, checklists, recommended resources, and more, Your Cancer Road Map will be a powerful companion for anyone with questions about cancer.
