Navigating Your Cancer Journey: A Handbook for Cancer Patients and Caregivers by an Oncology Nurse Navigator
Navigating your Cancer Journey is a book that dares to understand the unique challenges that exist for cancer patients and caregivers at home, during treatment. This book was written by an oncology nurse navigator to empower cancer patients and caregivers with knowledge on topics like: Financial Resources â¢ Exercise and the Cancer Patient â¢ Nutrition â¢ Complementary and Alternative Therapies â¢ Clinical Trials â¢ Self Help â¢ Cancer Medications â¢ Medical Insurance â¢ What is Cancer Anyway? â¢ Cancer and Sexuality â¢ End of Life Counseling â¢ Care for the Caregivers â¢ How to travel with cancer â¢ Survivorship and more... The compassion and understanding with which Marais writes feels like a warm, calming hug from a beloved best friend. Her obvious and refreshing belief in the power of the patient takes center stage and is solidified through eloquently penned patient stories that bring home the message: You are not alone. Marais is a natural writer whose descriptions gently move the reader from one vivid landscape to another with ease and grace. We sincerely hope she continues to put pen to paper!
