As she covers each topic, you may find her own personal experience tucked among the information. But her recovery is not the subject here. It was the variety of information, some outside the traditional approaches with their risks, besides what foods may be helpful.
When I joined CANSURVIVORS, a help group through American Cancer Society, I knew that a factual help book like this was immensely important to ease people through their illness. I refer to it all the time, but often have given my copy away again!
After my treatment, with many bumps along the way despite the best of care, I was determined that a different book was needed. I would write it. I organized the topics, and was searching for professionals to interview. I was startled to find that Bruning followed my outline in "Coping with Chemotherapy" two years earlier. She had written my book very well! I thank her again.
"Coping With Chemotherapy" covers every physical symptom I have had to look up as well as the emotional aspects of cancer and chemo. In the beginning of the book Bruning also provides information on the "basics" of how cancer and chemo work...WITHOUT using too much jargon. And because Bruning has been thru this HERSELF, you know she's not blowing smoke up your butt. Bottom line? If you or a loved one are currently getting chemo or trying to find out about some options, this book is a refreshingly honest and caring help.
