Publisher Description

For more than twenty years, Dr. Holland has pioneered the study of psychological problems of cancer patients and their families -- whom she calls "the real experts." In The Human Side of Cancer, she shares what she has learned from all of them about facing this life-threatening illness and what truly helps along the cancer journey. This book is the next best thing to sitting in Dr. Holland's office and talking with her about the uncertainty and anxiety elicited by this disease. And it is a book that inspires hope -- through stories of the simple courage of ordinary people confronting cancer.

The Human Side of Cancer

Subtitled Living with Hope, Coping with Uncertainty. A better title for the value of this wonderful book. I can't tell you how much this book helped me to understand the emotional processes I have been going through in the past 5 months of diagnosis, chemo, surgery and radiation therapy for breast cancer. I thought I was alone in some of my reactions and scary feelings, but the author actually described each emotion I have had. I strongly recommend this book for all cancer patients and their families or caregivers. Wouldn't hurt the doctors to read it to remind them of how vulnerable their cancer patients are.
