I had several tests run before I started chemo, but I really wasn't sure what they were for. Bone scan, MRI, CT scan, echo... This book really explained them in an easy-to-understand way. Truly appreciate How Breast Cancer is Like a Dandelion as I go through my cancer journey.
How Breast Cancer is Like a Dandelionis straightforward and doesn't mask risks or possible outcomes, but compassionately presents the tough information, offering hope. Dr. Joe Explains series has a collaborative and team-spirited approach.
All newly diagnosed (and some recurrent) breast cancer patients undergoing treatment receive a copy due to the generosity of our cancer center. Our patients refer to it throughout their treatment and beyond.
One of the things I liked best about How Breast Cancer Is Like a Dandelion is that you can read what you need to know and come back to read more when you are ready. It's an excellent resource, directed not only at the physical changes, but also at the psychological roller coaster. They take the diagnosis and lead you calmly along the path to recovery.
