Lessening stress and worry

Living a rich full life with cancer despite the fear and possibility of recurrence

Critic Reviews

"I found myself saying `yes' over and over as I heard each chapter. A breast cancer survivor, and an oncology social worker, I found wisdom and insight scattered throughout." (Patricia Fobair, LCSW, MPH, author and editor, Learning to Live Again, and clinical social worker at Stanford University Medical Center's radiation oncology department)
