All too often we hear that someone we know is facing cancer. A friend, relative, or neighbor—or a colleague, church member, customer, patient, care receiver, or client—receives the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis.
During such a difficult time, we want to reach out with support and care, to offer help and hope. But how? A simple, powerful way is to give a copy of Cancer—Now What? This book is a comprehensive how-to guide that helps cancer patients and their loved ones navigate the medical, emotional, relational, and spiritual challenges of cancer.
Cancer—Now What? covers a wide range of challenges that those with cancer and their loved ones may face. This book is organized into four topical sections.
