Description - Uplift by Barbara Delinsky
In this volume, novelist and cancer survivor Barbara Delinsky offers a resource for those undergoing breast cancer treatment. Delinsky has collected a compendium of survival secrets that have nothing to do with doctors, machines or drugs and everything to do with women helping women. In it, women recount the strategies that helped them through all aspects of cancer, including diagnosis, treatment, support groups and how to best conduct relationships with family, friends and in the workplace. The volume discusses: the practical and emotional side of losing a breast; advice on what to expect from radiotherapy; how to handle chemotherapy and hair loss; how to make the workplace more user-friendly; advice on your relationship with your partner and your sex life; top exercise tips; and how to take charge of your life and remain positive.
