Coping with Chemotherapy
More than one in four people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some time during their lives, and most of them will need chemotherapy. This makes chemotherapy one of the most widely used forms of treatment today. For many, 'chemotherapy' is a frightening, almost taboo word - but today's sophisticated drugs are resulting in ever improving cure rates, as well as better quality of life during the treatment itself. Coping with Chemotherapy explains what the treatment is, how the drugs work, and different ways in which they can be given. It also explains how to tackle side effects such as sickness, tiredness and hair loss. This new edition also looks at the growth in importance of hormonal treatments, and of targeted therapies, drugs which attack specific abnormalities on cancer cells. The advice on money matters has also been updated and expanded.

The Royal Marsen Cancer Cookbook
'Until now, there has been little authoritative and practical information about this issue. So it is a great relief to welcome The Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook.' Sarah Stacey, You Magazine 'The Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook is an attractive and accomplished project that combines artistic flair and scientific material, and aims to provide helpful advice and recipes for those undergoing cancer treatment.' Jules Morgan, The Lancet Oncology The book is divided into three: a detailed section by Dr Clare Shaw on diet and cancer and the problems you may face during treatment (such as loss of appetite, nausea, sore mouth, change of taste); recipes to cook during treatment, which are nutritionally beneficial and wholesome enough to keep you strong even if you can't eat too much; and a section of recipes for after treatment aimed at keeping you healthy. These recipes are designed to serve smaller portions and two people as well as families, and there are lots of tips about budgeting, leftovers and freezing. Dr Shaw wants to emphasise that you don't have to cook 'special', separate meals for one, the rest of the family can eat in the same way, saving on time and stress as well as encouraging a healthier diet for all.

The Breast Cancer Book
'This is an excellent book and I would recommend it to any woman with breast cancer.' Christine Fogg, Breast Cancer Care.The Breast Cancer Book is the book Val Sampson looked for in vain when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. Based on her own experience, that of other breast cancer patients and also on interviews with experts in this field, it looks at the conventional medical treatments of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, as well as at the part which can be played by complementary treatments such as reflexology, meditation and spiritual healing. It also sets out to give emotional help and support in coping with the fear and sense of loneliness that often comes with a diagnosis of cancer, and there are sections on how to get support from people around you, how to look good and feel better, and twenty things to try if you are feeling low. Above all, it shows women that it is possible to lead a happy and fulfilling life after a diagnosis of breast cancer, and that the power to achieve this lies within the individual. This book is the most well-balanced, supportive and honest book on breast cancer available today.
