The Thinking Woman's Guide to Breast Cancer: Take Charge of Your Recovery and Remission

by Janet Maker, Ph.D.

Dr. Maker's book is designed to empower breast cancer patients to go beyond the current "one-size-fits-all" standard of care and make the decisions that are best suited for their particular situation. Because of her research background, Dr. Maker was able to uncover a great deal of information that is not commonly known to patients. This information helped her tremendously through her bout with breast cancer and remission. Current treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and hormone therapy are not always successful, and many die after treatment or are harmed by serious side effects. Patients need to understand all the treatment options and survival rates, and all the side effects. Readers may not make the same choices as Dr. Maker did, but the information she lays out will enable them to make choices that are best for them. This is the book she wished she had when she needed it.
