Description - Living with Childhood Cancer by Leigh A. Woznick

This manual was written by two individuals who survived the stress of family cancer by mobilizing their resources and rebuilding their lives. Mother-daughter team Leigh Wolznick and Carol Goodheart draw on their own family's experience with cancer, as well as their professional expertise - one as a hospital counsellor and the other as a psychologist. The authors lay out practical strategies for coping with overwhelming medical information, frequent invasive procedures, heavy financial burdens, and crippling stress. Their insights are illustrated by interviews with cancer families of all kinds, as well as the nurses, doctors and others who care for them. Topics covered include handling emotions, reducing stress, choosing a hospital, dealing with insurers, communicating with health professionals, and understanding the impact of the disease on family and friends. Further sources of support are listed in a resource list of organizations, books and videos designed to help families maintain hope and restore their lives.
