Summary:
"After the intense experience and range of emotion that comes with surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy (or all three), cancer patients often find themselves with little or no guidance when it comes to their health post-treatment. After Cancer Care, from Drs. Gerald Lemole, Pallav Mehta, and Dwight McKee, is the much-needed authoritative, approachable guide that fills this gap. According to Drs. Lemole, Mehta, and McKee, your choices in diet, exercise, and even relationships can help determine your propensity for relapse. With more than three decades of post-cancer-care experience, the doctors break down this science into palatable, practical takeaways so that readers will drastically improve their quality of life to enjoy many years of cancer-free serenity"--
