"While important strides in cancer care have led to substantial increases in survival, the personal experience of having cancer remains extraordinarily challenging. In The Big Ordeal, Cynthia uses her knowledge as a cancer patient and her skills as an observer to present a message of understanding and hope for all those touched by the cancer experience."
--Greg Fricchione, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Associate Chief of Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital; Director, Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine
"The Big Ordeal is a vital guide for patients and family members contending with a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and life beyond. Interweaving the empathic perspectives of a survivor with grounding insights from the science of the stress response, fear, anxiety, depression, cognition, and resilience, this book provides a unique roadmap for an often disorienting and life-changing journey. With its double helix of heart and science, The Big Ordeal is a must-read for anyone trying to fathom the unfathomable.
--Jonathan Alpert, MD, PhD, Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Montefiore Medical Center; Professor of Psychiatry, Neuroscience, Pediatrics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
"The Big Ordeal is a must-read for anyone facing cancer, as a patient or loving caregiver. Through her research with patients and experts, Cynthia brings new insights and understanding to the experience of cancer, helping to reduce the isolation, fear, and anxiety so common with a diagnosis. I experience the psychosocial challenges the diagnosis engenders on a daily basis and know that the empathy and intelligence shared in this book will help to ease the stress of a cancer care journey."
--Shalom Kalnicki, MD, FASTRO, FACRO, Professor and Chairman, Department of Radiation Oncology, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine
"Ms. Hayes writes with confidence, balancing difficult psychological and medical issues in a voice that will please both professionals and lay readers--not an easy task."
--Ronald Piana with The ASCO Post
"For this book, Hayes collaborated with several experts -- including her oncologist -- to discuss the emotional side of cancer, starting with the diagnosis, into treatment and recovery, and finally progression or recurrence."
--Darlene Dobkowski with CURE®
"The Big Ordeal is an accessible resource for the 14 million families around the world dealing with cancer each year, and the go-to book for those who seek to advocate for themselves."
--Barbara Jacoby with Let Life Happen
