A cancer prognosis has the tendency to knock patients and their family off their feet. Nothing can prepare people for the big “C” and it often feels like they are losing control over their own life, where nothing will be the same again.

This book takes readers through the journey of Prema (diagnosed with breast cancer) and Prem (her caregiver) and covers the whole gamut of processes in cancer treatment and care in a simple language: diagnosis, medical treatment options, physical and psychosocial side effects, complementary therapies, and the importance of patient-centric care to improve the quality of life of breast cancer survivors. We hope future breast cancer patients and their families will benefit from our book and prepare themselves to face the challenges of dealing with breast cancer.
