"In this beautifully written, authoritative, and accessible book, Alschuler and Gazella offer state-of-the-art advice, direction, and companionship to anyone diagnosed with cancer.

This book is a lighthouse for anyone frightened and adrift in the dark."—Rachel Naomi Remen, MD, clinical professor, UCSF School of Medicine, and author of Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather's Blessings
