This was a very quick overview; nice and I appreciate the author's experiences, but there really wasn't any info you couldn't get for free all over the Internet. Some chapters were somewhat informative while others were extremely simplistic. I found myself skimming a lot and really didn't find anything "I wish I'd known" at all!

A quick read. Very general. Well written. I laughed and read the section on chemo fatigue out loud to my husband because it was just so validating to see the extreme experience in print and know that I'm not just a whiny weakling compared to the average cancer patient.

Full of good tips like packing an overnight bag so you'll have your stuff if/when you are hospitalized.

“There is that one burning question we all want to know the answer to, but, may be too afraid to ask. What are my chances of surviving this diagnosis? It seemed like every web site gave me a different answer. They put a number in my mind and in hind sight, the number in my mind should have been 100…..100% chance of my survival…nothing less! Never let statistics get in your head. You are an individual, not a number, and you will make your way through this with your own strength and grace.” 0 likes
