Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a psychotherapist, specifically a social worker. For over thirty years, I've often worked with people facing serious, even life-limiting illnesses. But that isn't why I bought this booklet. I recently learned that a close friend has what appears to be advanced cancer. That was a shock, and it shouldn't have been. He'd given me bits of information that, if I'd known what was written here, I would have known earlier and, perhaps, been better able to companion him on his hard journey. None of my clients, you see, dealt with cancer, so I didn't know.

That's the first good point about this booklet -- we're not born knowing. It can be really helpful to know, specifically and in some detail, about cancer. As this booklet points out, all cancers are somewhat different, and all individual responses to cancer and cancer treatment are somewhat unique. And there are many commonalities which are often helpful to know.

There's a lot here that I'm glad to know as a friend. There's a lot here, particularly about the "emotional" side, that I'm glad to be reminded of as a friend. Because even though I'm also a professional, now I'm a friend. And that makes it hard to remember all I know as a professional.

That's the second good point about this booklet -- cancer, like all life-limiting diseases, is a dense, highly emotional interweaving of medical terms and facts with deeply felt realities. This book addresses both sides throughout.

Because these terms and facts carry so much hard meaning, even though it's short and well-written, don't expect it to be a quick read or a once-through read. It's well-organized so, when I forgot something, I could quickly review a term or bit of information. The glossary and index are helpful.
