Editorial Reviews

Review

ChemoCompanion is a wonderful example of how someone s cancer journey, complete with its physical, emotional and practical challenges, has inspired them to share their unique knowledge to empower other cancer survivors. It is an engaging and smart resource that ensures the patient, their life goals and quality of life are ever-present priorities during their chemotherapy treatments. --Andy Miller, MHSE, CHES Executive Vice President, Mission Lance Armstrong Foundation - LIVESTRONG

This is a darling little guide to chemotherapy with happy pictures and happy thoughts. This is a perfect gift for a friend or loved one that is anticipating therapy for cancer--the scariest word in our language! As a physician, I found this book precise and educational. I highly recommend it! There are many little pearls of wisdom, but the greatest feature of the book is the POSITIVITY it brings to the reader.

As a retired RN and as a person who has sat at the bedside of friends suffering the side effects of chemotherapy, I wish I would have had this resource book. This is a compact, quick read with understandable recommendations to medical challenges. The pictures and the humor give an encouraging atmosphere. In the future, my gift to anyone I know going through therapy will be the ChemoCompanion Care Guide. Darlene Wilcox

Everyone knows someone who is struggling through cancer (and likely, by extension, chemotherapy). This is an outstanding source of intensely-practical information (most of which you would never figure out on your own) that has everything you need to know and nothing you don't. For something as challenging as chemotherapy, it's nice to have a resource that doesn't read like a textbook or a computer user-manual. A must-have for anyone going through chemo!

What a wonderful book! As an RN whose patients undergo chemotherapy, this book provides an educational yet humorous view on what they may expect during their course of treatment. In the words of Lee Iacocca, in times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.
This book is a valuable tool.

This book is full of wisdom, caring, comfort, common sense, and important information - all presented so gently. The use of photographs and the colors is very soothing and uplifting. I felt peaceful after I read it, knowing there's always a heartfelt book that someone going through chemo can pick up to learn a bit more about whatever is happening at the time. Thank you for creating this valuable guide to help ease the anxiety, confusion and fears of chemotherapy. I'm gifting this book to my friends and relatives who are undergoing chemotherapy.
